Overlooking a vast expanse of frozen sea, Brandon Lodge is a cosy and comfortable lodge in the heart of Swedish Lapland.
Victoria is here to help give you the inside track.
All 15 cabins of the timber lodge face the Bothnian sea - which is frozen solid in winter - and have been tastefully renovated with ensuite bathrooms, a living area and a covered porch so an evening gazing at the Northern Lights is possible just a step outside the door. Hot tubs and saunas are also available for those who need a little relaxation or to warm up after a day in the great outdoors, because Swedish Lapland is the place for adventure and adrenaline-inducing activities.
The hotel is uniquely positioned to offer hovercraft tours on ice, undoubtedly one of the most exciting experiences around. Whizzing across the ice is not for the faint hearted, but it certainly shows the majesty of this extraordinary landscape. Or should that be icescape. Ice fishing trips are also available with a knowledgeable guide who can explain traditional hunting ways, and it's an exciting moment when your efforts are rewarded. Finally, a snowmobile tour of the forests shows the rugged wilderness of Swedish Lapland at its finest.
Why we love it
Remote, cosy and comfortable - Brandon Lodge is the perfect place to retreat to after a day filled with adrenaline-fuelled activities.
