A small hut in the forest will provide the accomodation for the night, you will have to make your own fire to stay warm and to cook your food. But if you want to experience some wildlife in great swedish forests, this is a great place to stay. A sauna on a raft in the nearby lake is the closest thing to luxury at this hostel, but it still one of the best vacations ever.

Gorgeous stay in a charcoal hut - really enjoyed chopping own wood, building fires for cooking, compost loos, spring water supply etc.! Sauna is also a must.

Attended with two friends on the Bushcraft course where we learnt shelter building, lighting, water purification and foraging skills. Andreas was a very informative and welcoming host.

Kolarbyn would also be great just for a stay without a course or activity.

Kolarbyn is located about 3km from Skinnskatteberg, but feel a lot further away from anything than that! Staying in a small hut with no more than two beds and a fireplace really brings you in touch with the surroundings.
When staying here, you make your own fires to cook on, you get your drinking water from the stream running along side the camp. Everything done here is done by hand and tests your skills.
The floating sauna is great too! A couple of hours sitting in there is relaxing and knowing you're the one that made the fire heating it up making it all the more satisfying. For those who don't mind cold water, a jump in the lake afterwards is worth it!
Canoeing on the lake is a great way to spend an afternoon too! The still water mean's it's possible for even the most inexperienced waterman to enjoy the experience.
The whole area is just so peaceful! And there are plenty of walks to go on and views to find!
For anyone looking for an escape from life for a few days, this is the perfect place to stay!

Best place to relax and enjoy for a weekend. Would recommend this for all nature people. Dont forget to bring your sleeping bag and maybe some snacks. Kolarbyn is a memory I will cherish for a very long time.

The Eco-lodge is definitely worth going off the beaten path to get to. If you are looking for a really unique experience, and are not averse to a bit of a physical challenge, do check it out. The staff was really helpful, and it's amazing to be able to be in such pristine wilderness.
