Deep in the heart of Swedish Lapland’s Rane River Valley, Arctic Retreat is a luxurious and contemporary eco-lodge which offers the ultimate escape whether you’re after a peaceful retreat or an adventurous getaway.
Three traditional log cabins sleeping a maximum of ten guests form the accommodation at the lodge. Inside, the interiors are cosy and welcoming with roaring fireplaces to snuggle up next to on colder nights, and private saunas and outdoor Jacuzzis to soak in. Bedrooms are in the loft as well as downstairs in the larger family cabins, and in the lounge area floor to ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the river.
Stays at Arctic Retreat are on a full board basis and meals can be enjoyed in the main restaurant or out in the wilderness while on excursions. Cuisine is very much part of the experience here and the expert chefs aim to use organic, locally-sourced ingredients to create Swedish-style, home-cooked meals.
There are a multitude of activities to enjoy from the lodge including Northern Lights tours, snowmobile safaris, husky sledding, local Sami family visits and moose safaris. For the more adventurous, cross country skiing and snowshoe walks can also be organised.
With roaring fireplaces, private saunas and outdoor Jacuzzis, you'll be cosy and snug on the coldest of nights.
