Arctic Retreat has found a niche with discerning guests looking for small-scale, genuinely high-quality cabin accommodation, beautiful river views in a forested location, high-quality private activities, and excellent cuisine where our theme is locally sourced, simple and tasty. Overlaying these attributes is a relaxed and personal meeting with our local owners and guides.
Arctic Retreat is tucked away deep in the forest at the foot of the Raven Rapid in the Råne River valley. This hidden gem in Swedish Lapland offers you a personal and exclusive stay. This eco-lodge has a back-to-nature feeling with delicious home cuisine and warm hospitality in a beautiful riverside setting. Sheltered by large trees, the traditional and luxuriously decorated log timber cabins offer an escape to another world.
Their focus is on a high level of personal service throughout your stay. Regardless of the day's adventures, a warm dip in your private hot tub and a Swedish Sauna, and a wholesome 3-course dinner await you in the evening. All meals are provided according to a set menu, with options to meet dietary needs, for each day based on seasonal availability. The experience is genuine – from the materials used and food served to the local people working on site. A stay at Arctic Retreat suits families, couples, and private groups. The cabins can be booked individually or the whole retreat for exclusive private stays.
Arctic Retreat is your perfect winter getaway. In the winter, our snowy climate enables us to enjoy excellent winter activities. As we are located in an isolated location, this is a fantastic place for viewing the northern lights. There is a wide range of optional winter adventures with local professional guides. Depending on your mood, these can be as peaceful as a massage session or as exhilarating as dog-sledging through the nearby forest. You are most welcome to enjoy the arctic winter lifestyle with us at Arctic Retreat.
