Bergaliv and Orbaden Retreat with Mountain Hike and Spa, Vallsta



Retreat to nature for a stay of simple tranquillity in loft house, the first of Bergaliv’s retreat houses, on a hillside high above the treetops at ljusnan’s valley. Combine with 24 hours at Orbaden Spa & Resort.

Bergaliv: Simplicity and Balance

High above the treetops on a Swedish mountain, Bergaliv Landscape Hotel is recognised by its unique Loft House architecture with stunning views over a stunning landscape of nature and culture.

The Bergaliv Loft Houses are architect-drawn organic wooden cabins embracing the vision of a landscape hotel, aiming to blend in with the surrounding nature and highlight its natural beauty. In the top-quality hotel room of a Loft House and its wide-open loft under the roof, guests can retreat comfortably, leave the city noise behind and let nature soothe their minds.

This is also the perfect place to consider wonderful Hälsingland. Bergaliv adjoins the Ljusnan River Valley, a scenic landscape in beauteous harmony that attracted the Vikings to settle down here more than a millennium ago. In summer with long days and light short nights, botanists can discover their fairyland, while in winter, traces from elks, foxes, and rabbits will mark the snowy mountain. Springtime is a serenade of birds singing and autumn a peaceful treasury of mushrooms and wild berries.

Orbaden: A Magical Place

Orbaden, down by the riverside, is famous for its beach of white sand and crystal clear water and the facilities of Orbaden Spa & Resort with its fine old hotel traditions, restaurant, and spa. For almost 100 years, people have met and rejoiced here amid blue mountains and rolling valleys. From Orbaden, artists, actors, and business leaders have drawn strength and inspiration. Hälsingland Riviera is a historic spa town and a creative meeting place for both conference and private guests. With fantastic food, Orbaden’s own organic farms, and an award-winning spa, you are welcomed to experience luxury and flair at Hälsingevis.

In 1925, the number of homeowners in the village decided to buy the land on the site where the hotel is located – with the aim of constructing a restaurant. The property was then located in surrounding courtyards.

Guests and staff agree that there is something magical about this place. One thing is for sure: stress and everyday worries are already disappearing when you are standing in the hotel lobby and looking straight into the heart of Hälsingland.
