Arctic Retreat | Water Cabin



Tucked away in the deep boreal forests of Swedish Lapland is an absolute hidden gem of a getaway. By a bend in the Råne River is Arctic Retreat, the ultimate Arctic getaway.

Arctic Retreat’s traditional timber cabins feature floor-to-ceiling north-facing windows, perfect for keeping an eye out for the elusive Northern Lights. The open-plan living areas have a cosy living area with a fireplace and outside you have a private outdoor jacuzzi.

The magical winter season brings cosy evenings around the fire after a day of exploring. Explore Arctic nature by snowmobile, dogsled, or skis, the arrays of guided experiences are many, and regardless of the day’s adventures a warm dip in your jacuzzi, perhaps a visit to the sauna, and definitely a wholesome 3-course dinner await you.

In the summer, the river converts, and as the snow melts and the Råne River wraps around the cove converting the area used for ice-fishing and skiing into a kayaking and fishing playground. Starting from September, fall signals the first chance for spotting Northern Lights, picking berries in forests full of colour, and the best fishing season.

The Water Cabin is perfect for 2-3 people. There is a double bed on the ground floor following a single bed in the loft.
