Description

Solhyllan Cabins are the jewel in the crown of Björkliden Mountain Resort's accommodation options. Just three of these luxury 4 bedroom wooden cabins exist with each boasting a sauna and jacuzzi on a patio with panoramic views of Swedish Lapland.

In 1939 Hotell Fjället first opened its doors. Kåppas Cabin Village was added in 1971 & in 2012 came the luxurious Solhyllan cabins. All three together form Björkliden Mountain Resort, a myriad of accommodation choices nestled in the majestic mountains.

A trip North to Swedish Lapland's superb ski resort Björkliden wont disappoint. With a choice of three accommodation options - Hotell Fjället, Kåppas Cabin Village or the newly built log cabins Solhyllan you are spoiled for choice. And that is before you even consider the winter activity list or the chance of seeing the Aurora Borealis!

The Solhyllan cabins are the luxury option at Björkliden and perfect for families but also for a couple or group of friends who want the best. Newly built, these ski in ski out chalet style options feature

4 spacious bedrooms, a wonderful living area with stove and superb views, two toilets and two showers as well as a sauna and hot tub on the patio with glorious views of the mountains. Bed linen and a departure clean are included but breakfast must be added on which is well worth it. TV, Wi-Fi, a Blu-Ray player and iPad/iPhone dock also feature.

A wide range of amazing winter activities are possible from your doorstep including snow-mobiling, husky sledding, on piste and heli-skiing and snow-shoeing. Not to mention the tantalising prospect of seeing the incredible Northern Lights.

While staying in one of the cabins, consider a truly unusual overnight trip to Sweden's highest mountain lodge, Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge. The lodge is located 9 km further up the mountain from Björkliden so bedding down here really means you will sleep in the midst of the wilderness. Enjoy a sauna, gourmet food and a glowing fire in this mountain retreat. And of course you will be hard pressed to find somewhere as perfectly placed for Northern Lights viewing, with light pollution almost negligible.

Slaney O'Brien (Staff)

Bjorkliden is perfect for couples and families alike, looking for an adventurous Swedish Lapland experience. These cabins are so luxurious and cosy - perfect after a long day of fun-filled activities. They come with a state of the art sauna and all the mod cons you could want high up in mountains. The food here is fantastic and far better than you would ever expect.
