Enjoy activity holidays in Lapland, mixing nature, culture and well-being!
Swedes love to go on weekends to spend time in the middle of nature. Many of them have a cottage in the forest and go there regularly to fish, wander and enjoy their free time. With this stay, you will have the opportunity to taste this way of life “slow” and connected to Nature, while discovering the local culture.
A small wooden chalet, lost in the boreal forest. Inside, a fire crackles. It’s time to relax and take care of yourself. Daily sauna, home-made meals inspired by local gastronomy, caring hosts, everything is done to make your stay zen.
Holidays in harmony with the environment
Lapland Retreat strives to be as eco-friendly as possible. No running water or electricity, but cozy wood-heated chalets, daily saunas and only organic and / or homemade toiletries.
