Winter Active Accommodation - Log Cabins and Lodges in Sweden and Finland
Winter is a marvellous season in the Nordic countries, and one of our Winter Active Accommodation experiences can provide the perfect blend of comfort, relaxation and activity, whether you choose a catered or self-catered option.

Aurora Lodge Escape in Lapland combines comfortable, hotel-standard accommodation with a wide variety of optional activities, from snowshoeing and cross country skiing to dog sledding and snowmobiling. This can be chosen as a stand-alone experience or, if you are spending longer in the area, makes an ideal combination with one of our longer dogsled tours in the Kiruna region such as Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland.
The Lodge offers a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere with sauna available each night and a focus on local cuisine and is a very good choice for couples or for families with older children looking for a multi-activity winter experience with the chance to try a number of activities from a fixed base.
Lapland Sámi Retreat at the Reindeer Camp is a very special experience, with a choice of three accommodation options (Forest Cabin, Lávvu or Goahti) inspired by Sámi culture and reindeer herding tradition, with the reindeer just metres from your door. The Reindeer Camp is particularly suitable for extending your stay in Lapland before or after one of our dogsled tours in the area. Why not stay three nights and try a night in each one for the ultimate Lapland Sámi stay?

Also in the far north of Sweden, right on the Finnish border, Northern Lights Multi-activity Adventure in Lapland offers a week's programme of winter experiences including snowshoeing, dog sledding and overnight ski tour to wilderness cabin, with accommodation in simple but comfortable chalets for 2-4 persons and meals served in the camp restaurant.

The Aurora Lodge Escape, Reindeer Camp and Northern Lights Multi-activity Adventure in Lapland experiences are all located in areas giving very good chances to see the Northern Lights during your stay. The Northern Lights can be seen up until around early/mid-April, after which the nights become too light.

At Winter Log Cabin Escape in Värmland, the winter season here runs from around mid-December to March. In a normal year, there is usually snow at the farm before Christmas, with the main winter season being January to March. The cabins lie in the west of Sweden, roughly level with Stockholm and towards the Norwegian border, and offers a wonderful location for a self-catering winter holiday. Again, the main winter season is typically January-March, with snow before Christmas in a typical season. With three cabins located approx. 25m apart each sleeping up to 4 adults (or a family of 5 with children), this experience makes a good choice for two or more families or groups of friends travelling together, as well of course if travelling as just one family or couple.
Possible activities include snowshoeing, tobogganing and cross country skiing in the surrounding forests, as well as snowmobiling and dog sledding day tours. Guided ice fishing and fishing equipment hire can also be arranged. To fully explore the range of possibilities and attractions in the area (including possibilities for downhill skiing), a car will be required, but the experience is also accesssible by public transport.
