Pine Bay Lodge is a charming, homely lodge in the heart of Swedish Lapland, where guests can spend days indulging in a range of adventurous activities, and nights wrapped up warm and in search of the beautiful Aurora Borealis.
Victoria is here to help give you the inside track.
From the red cottage exterior to the traditional design of the bedrooms, Pine Bay Lodge is a homely lodge that offers up adventurous activities right on its doorstep. There are eight bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms that offer a cosy retreat after a day in the snowy outdoors. The open plan dining and seating area of the hotel is a central place to put your feet up and enjoy some typical Swedish cuisine. This could be anything from reindeer to moose, cloudberries or arctic char and head chef Frans Hedblad prides himself on the use of predominantly home-grown ingredients. This being Sweden, the hotel wouldn't be complete without a sauna.
The reason to come to Swedish Lapland is for the range of high octane and exciting activities available and Pine Bay Lodge can arrange adrenaline-charged adventures from driving a team of huskies and snowmobiling across the vast Swedish archipelago, to high class cookery lessons. As darkness falls, the beautiful glimmers of the Northern Lights will hopefully be there to tempt you back outdoors as the Aurora Borealis is a wonder not to be missed.
Why we love it
Only about 2% of Swedish Lapland is inhabited or cultivated, so for those who want to hunker down in the wilderness in comfort, Pine Bay is the perfect choice.
