Swedish Lapland’s loggers lived a hard life on the edge, floating timbers down streams and rivers to mills on the coast. The practice gave way to lorries in the 1970s, but many of the loggers’ handsome riverside cabins remained. Nestled deep in the forests off the Gulf of Bothnia, Loggers Lodge is arguably one of the most romantic eco-luxury wilderness hideaways in Swedish Lapland. The charming 1940s abode, with a cosy room that once accommodated 16 loggers and is now just for two. Pine walls, a huge fireplace with logs to fuel it, sheep and reindeer skins – the ultimate in forest luxury. A recent renovation saw the additional of an exquisite new sauna in a glass-panelled cabin, as well as a second guest room - also glass-fronted, to bring the outdoors in.
After days spent exploring or venturing into the Arctic Circle, private chef Jørgen will prepare hearty meals that fill the dining table using traditional, organic ingredients such as Arctic char, reindeer, berries and wild mushrooms. All that’s left to decide is whether to unwind in the wood-fired sauna or stargaze from the outdoor hot tub. Tough decisions.
