Get back to basics in Sweden’s most primitive hotel

Get back to basics at the Kolarbyn, twelve huts situated in the forests of rural Sweden just a few hours from Stockholm. The owners call it ‘Sweden’s most primitive hotel’ and we agree, however it’s also one of Sweden’s most charming. Although rustic is a severely overused word, there isn’t another that can describe the Kolarbyn better.

No electricity, no running water (you can collect from the nearby spring), just two berth huts with sheep skin rugs and a crackling fire to keep you warm. Guests will need to chop their own wood and bring their own food to cook on the fireplace.

The setting is fantastic, right on the stunning Lake Skärsjön. When you arise from your slumber you can take a refreshing dip in the lake before gathering wild berries for your breakfast pancakes. How wholesome is that?

So what do you do with your days? There’s a floating sauna on the lake, canoes and wooden rowing boats are provided and you can take nature walks in the surrounding countryside. Of course, the best thing to do is simply do nothing in the peace and quiet of this rural paradise.

Price start from 350 Krona (US $55). For more information on bookings visit the Kolarbyn website.
