Kolarbyn Eco-lodge is called Sweden’s most primitive hotel and guests from all over the World come here to stay for a few nights for outdoor activities such as wildlife watching, hiking or fishing. During the Kolarbyn Eco-lodge Family Adventure you accommodate at Kolarbyn Eco-lodge in combination with our most popular safari tours to see Moose and Beaver.
Kolarbyn Eco-lodge is a very unusual hotel that consists of twelve rustic forest huts located in a glade by the beautiful lake Skärsjön. Each hut has two hard beds with sheep skin rugs for sleeping bags. You may also ask for an extra berth for a child. All huts have a wood heater. Many guests come here for lodging in one of the huts, just like a normal hotel, just more primitive and much more adventurous! There is no electricity but live candles and a crackling fire place that will guide you asleep. After a silent night you slowly wake up to birds’ song and a swim in the lake. Kolarbyn is undoubtedly a true nature experience for both couples and families.
The area offers good opportunities for a wide range of free outdoor activities with excellent fishing opportunities and forest trails to explore.
The idea in Kolarbyn is self-catering, which means you will do a lot yourself, such as wood cutting, water fetching, picking berries, recycling of waste and helping out to make Kolarbyn a nicer place to be. There is a storage building where you can pick up food items for breakfast, lunch and evening meals for preparation over open fire, a true wildlife experience!
