Amazing! If you want to jump out of everyday-life and inhale pure nature, then visit this lovely place. I had some wonderful tranquil days... making food over open fire, swimming in the lake, walking through the woods, and cosy nights in my little hobbit-hut.

Overall: I very much can recommend this place for anyone willing to experience calm and nature in an uncomplicated but well-organized place.

Together with my two sons (10 and 12) we spent four nights at Kolarbyn Eco-Lodge. The three of us liked it very much. The place looks beautiful and one feels in perfect harmony with nature. It was a 'Into the Wild' feeling without having to hunt for food, though.

On the positive side: nice location, very peaceful ambiance, good quality basic food in the supply hut, free access to supply (i.e. trust based approach that we appreciated much), everything is well organized, no electricity/wifi and co :-) , lake, sauna.

On the negative side: limited sleeping comfort (my children slept like angels, though), no clear opening hours for receptions.

I stayed 2 weeks at Kolarbyn as volunteer and it was a fantastic experience. If you are looking for tranquility and nature it's the perfect place to stay. You can go for a walk around the lake, use the sauna, a small boat or you can also swimming in the lake. It's good to stay one night but it's better to stay two or three nights to enjoy entirely. If you go there I advice you to do a safari (beaver/moose) with "wildsweden". I went there at the beginning of june and there was not so much mosquitoes yet. Andreas, the owner is a really nice person and helpful.
Well don't hesitate and try this unique adventure!!!

Room Tip: If you want something more confortable, you can choose the wood cabin.

The Kolarbyn Eco lodge was the highlight of our trip to Sweden! The little huts are straight out of a fairy tale, and were so warm and cosy and comfortable.

The host Andreas was great, showing us around the beautiful surrounds which include a stunning lake with a rowboat to use. A short walk around the lake takes you to the floating sauna which was a great way to unwind and warm up after a jump in the water.

The breakfast was delicious and everyone there was so friendly, chatting around the camp fires. We did a beaver and moose safari with Wild Sweden which was a great way to see the local wildlife.

I strongly recommend this unique experience

If you have to opportunity to visit this place while in Sweden, you should really do so. You live in the natural forest, without any electricity, make your own fire, go to the spring to get water, enjoy the lake, the sauna or just simply wander around in the beautiful surroundings. The staff is very helpful, the place has all the necessities (such as knives, candles etc.)
Its a nice place to stay for a romantic weekend as well as with family or friends - simply being there is an adventure, and resting for the soul.

Room Tip: The timmerkojan is a bit bigger and has bedclothes, while you have to bring a sleeping bag to the other rooms.
