Things to do

There’s a wealth of activities on hand to fill your days. Learn about the Sami culture and some wilderness survival skills or surprise yourself with what you can create with a block of ice. After a full day out, curl up with a cup of glogg in front of the fireplace with or head up to the hot tub. A perfect ending to an adventure filled day. In the summer, a varied choice of adventures on water abound. From kayaking and paddle boarding to crayfish fishing, all are followed by an enjoyable picnic lunch soon after.
