Overview

Situated in the middle of the forest away from light pollution, Logger’s Lodge is a private eco-luxury wilderness lodge for couples, friends and families in an ideal location for viewing the northern lights. It is perhaps the ultimate luxury hideaway in Lapland. The clean air and total silence of the surrounding area make this a perfect spot to promote deep relaxation. A state-of-the-art wood-fired sauna and outdoor hot tub are available for your private use at any time, day or night.

Heritage and History

In the 1940’s loggers cabins were built in strategic positions close to rivers and streams.  The timber floated from the forests on flowing streams and rivers to sawmills on the coast.  The people who worked with timber were known as loggers and they had a very hard, and often dangerous job. Walking on rolling timber and breaking up log jams could sometimes result in drowning.

During the 1970’s and 80’s this method of transporting timber stopped as trucks and trains took over. Logger’s Lodge is an original timber cabin from 1942 with a big central fireplace in the middle of the cabin.  The cabin served as a temporary home for up to 16 loggers, all of whom slept on bunk beds after a hard day’s work. Everybody had his own cast-iron pan and sat around the fireplace to cook food. You can still feel the history in the building and in the surroundings that reminds you of another era.

Today the lodge has been carefully renovated to create a romantic luxury suite for two with additional bedroom unit that sits by the lodge. Together with a state-of-the-art wooden and glass sauna and  hydro-therapy jacuzzi it is the prefect winter hideaway for stargazing and northern lights.

The exterior timber logs are painted in the Swedish traditional falu red paint and the pine interior walls are burnt to emphasise the beautiful pattern in the wood.  The Bodträskå stream that floated the timber is just a stone’s throw away from the lodge.

Cuisine

Using ingredients traditional to Swedish Lapland, your private chef will serve organic, gourmet meals directly to your table in the lodge. Should you need anything during your stay, the lodge is equipped with an iPad from which you can send a message to your host who will be happy to assist you.
