Family-run Brändön Lodge is flowing with tranquillity. Perched on the edge of the Gulf of Bothnia, overlooking the islands of the Luleå archipelago, fifteen cosy timber cabins face the sea. Cousins Göran Widén and Johan Björklund have been welcoming guests to their slice of Swedish Lapland since 1999.

Each cabin has two bedrooms, sleeping up to four guests plus a bathroom and lounge area providing all the space and comfort needed after a day in the wild. The covered porch of each property is a great place to perch and admire the views of sea or sky. And those wanting to rest weary limbs can head to the shore-side sauna and Jacuzzi.
A large log cabin, where an open fire roars and guests can relax is where mouth-watering meals are served. Berries, mushrooms, home smoked moose, meat and salmon await hungry travellers and vegetarians are well catered for here too.
Wild swim in the sparkling waters in summer or take part in adrenaline pumping activities across the frozen sea in winter. Hovercraft trips whizz guests all the way out to the pack ice, and from October to March, after dark excursions provide the perfect opportunity for Aurora hunters.
