Overview

About Kolarbyn

Primative Forest huts in idyllic location - sleep in a traditional forest hut in the woods

Kolarbyn consists of twelve little forest huts located by the beautiful lake Skärsjön. Called Sweden´s most primitive hotel, the huts have no electricity and the dark evenings are lit by candles or traditional oil lamps. Staying here is fantastic! There are blueberry bushes all around the site, so in summer you can pick the berries for your morning pancakes!

Each tiny hut provides two berths with sheep skin rugs to cushion your slumber. You are kept warm by a wood heater, with your first task to gather and chop adequate wood for your cooking and heating needs. During the week guests bring food to cook themselves at one of several fire places - one even has a view over lake Skärsjön.

Absolutely loved staying here, really magical, and the forest is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Also went on the Moose Safari which was great, we saw 16 Moose. Thanks to Andreas and Marcus.

This is a truly amazing place and so peaceful. Thomas and co were wonderful and the gourmet food for our stay in the 'luxury' lodge was superb. Canoe out and catch the sunset - it's a must.

Kolarbyn is a place I will never forget. Living in one of the forest huts got me down to earth again. I realy had the chance to flee my hectic daily life. No electricity and no running warm water ... seemed shocking at first and I was a little sceptical yet it amazed me at last. It needs so little to make you happy ... a blueberrybush and an anthill gave me the kick. Yet, meeting the King of the forest, a full size moose in free nature was absolutely breathtaking. There are no better guides than the Kolarbyn Team in this area. They have unbelievable knowledge concerning their forest. After beeing on the mossesafari with 14 moose we sat around the fireplace. Marcus knows the best stories and Thomas makes a delicious three course meel over open fire. I'll come again! Next time I'll go on the wolvesafari.

Have been to Kolarbyn a few times, last time with my son. Went for a combined elk- and wolfsafari. Excellent guide, lot of knowledge of animals and nature, and best of all - a perfect host and storyteller. As a guest you really get the feeling that you are unique in an unique nature!

Arrived mid afternoon in time for a tour of the forest. Saw the spring (excellent water) before being sent to chop wood for cooking and the hut. Local supermarket open 7/7 until 8pm, so easy to buy ingredients for a log fire supper. Huts cosy and comfortable - sleeping bag rented was excellent. Kids had a lot of fun and slept really well. The morning was fantastic - with a walk and picnic to a nearby bathing spot. In the evening we met up with Mikael for Beaver Safari - and a local farmstead meal. Everything perfect. Thanks Thomas and Marcus!
