Insider's View

The main house at Lapland Guesthouse is a beautiful insight into Swedish Laplands past, with its big timber beams and red paint, it has been lovingly restored by owner Johan and is now the heart of this super little retreat. 

Sneak into the kitchen for freshly baked goods in the afternoon and sit down in front of the fire for the perfect fika!

Description

Lapland Guesthouse is a beautifully presented, family-run, cosy retreat offering a genuine Lapland experience in a remote village in the far north of Sweden. This is the perfect base from which to enjoy an array of wilderness activities.

Surrounded by one of Sweden’s largest wetland areas, the Guesthouse is ideally situated to enjoy plentiful activities and experiences whether you visit in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. The winter season from December to March is the perfect time to explore the area via snowmobile or with a team of huskies, before cosying up in front of a roaring fire as darkness falls and the elusive northern lights dance above you. Summer offers the chance to hike, fish, cycle, quad bike and swim to your hearts content, with long hours of daylight, the possibilities to explore are endless.  

The Guesthouse itself is steeped in history and offers just a handful of eclectic and unique rooms to suit everyone from couples to larger family groups. The accommodation is dotted around a collection of traditional and cosy looking wooden cabins, allowing plenty of privacy.

Meals are served communal style in the delightfully traditional main building, allowing you to mingle over delicious and bountiful home-cooked Swedish fare. Why not end your evening with a whisky in the log cabin bar or, if you are feeling brave, by rolling around in the snow before jumping into the wood fired sauna or hot tub overlooking the Lapland wilderness?

What a hidden gem! This was my favorite stop on our Swedish Lapland tour and I could see myself taking my family back to this hotel. This is a family-run hotel is made up of an original farmhouse (kitchen, breakfast room and dining room) and multiple outbuildings that have been turned into retreats. Each accommodation is different and they are all fresh, modern and cozy. We stayed in the brand new Viking House which is large enough for a big family with two bedrooms and two lofts for sleeping. It also had a wood burning fireplace and a full service kitchen. Dinner is served family style and breakfast is a beautiful spread with a huge variety. Our hosts were incredibly warm and eager to ensure that everything that we wanted to do and see was taken care of. We spent the afternoon with our guide snowmobiling through the wilderness to a remote spot on a frozen lake where he built a fire and prepared lunch for us. It was a fantastic experience and I loved every minute of it. The hotel also has a sauna and hot tub (can be booked privately) and a new cabin built that has a bar and living room. It is hard to describe how cozy the property feels but the red painted buildings and the wetlands location make this an ideal winter retreat for guests of all ages. I highly recommend this hotel  for families, multi-generational families and couples alike.

On first glance I fell in love with Lapland Guest House. It is a small collection of pretty red and wooden buildings, situated next to some of Sweden's most expansive wetlands. Our room, the viking cabin, was warm, incredibly cosy and well laid out, with ample space for a large family, fun viking touches and a lovely log burner, perfect for cosying up in front of on cold nights.  We were taken out on the snowmobiles by their tame guide, Albin, who was kind, patient and good fun. The area surrounding the property really is stunning, you are totally out in the wilderness here with only Moose, Reindeer and forest birds for company. The food served is plentiful, local and extremely tasty and the bar has a find array of Scottish and Swedish whisky! Johan and his team gave us the warmest welcome and our short stay in this remarkable corner of the world is one I will not forget any time soon.
