A secluded lodge for two in the wilds of Swedish Lapland, this is as far off the beaten track as it gets, perfectly suited to honeymooners who want a taste of Arctic romance. The impossibly cosy cabin has its own central fireplace and dining area where guests are served exquisite Swedish Lappish meals, prepared by a private chef, after days spent exploring the snow-dusted surrounds. End each day in the outdoor hot tub under the starry skies and, luck depending, the swirls of the Northern Lights.
The remote wilds of northern Sweden may not typically lend themselves to fine dining, but this luxury lodge makes it seem effortless. You’ll be served classic delicacies, from Sweden’s best caviar, Kalix, to local fare such as Arctic char, reindeer and moose, alongside a chilled glass of Reisling or Bollinger. You can be sure your excursions will afford chances to stop for a few fikas comprising of coffee and a cinnamon bun along the way, too.
This former logger’s lodge stands perched cosily in the boreal forest, the classic falu red a wonderful contrast among the snow-blanketed pine trees. A giant fireplace lies in the middle of the timber-clad room, complete with a stack of firewood alongside reindeer hides strewn across the enormous bed. Not neglecting the Swedish knack for understated Scandi style, a hint of modernity is thrown in in the form of Lamino sheepskin chairs, grey-and-white accents and plush accessories. But tear yourself away, because after a quick dash across the snow you'll find your own personal wood-fired sauna, relaxation room, rainforest shower and outdoor Jacuzzi.
Harad's close proximity to the Arctic Circle makes Loggers Lodge a stand out location for Northern Lights viewing due to northern Sweden's lack of light pollution. Spend magical nights soaking in your own personal tub under the magical blend of starscape and glimmering aurora after meeting local Sami tribes and making the most of the snowy canopy with snowmobiling safaris, Nordic ski tours, cosy wilderness fires and Northern Lights photography classes. When summer's midnight glow bathes the spectacular landscape, hike through the verdant old-growth pine forest and boat trip along the Storforsen nature reserve, the magnificent flow of which is home to Northern Europe's largest rapids.
