Cousins Göran Widén and Johan Björklund have been running both Pine Bay Lodge and Brandon Lodge for nearly 20 years. Nestled in the Lulea archipelago islands by the sea in the Gulf of Bothnia, the landscape here is truly breathtaking. Genuine, small-scale and family-run, both cousins and properties have a reputation for offering guests adventure and an intimate encounter with the Arctic lifestyle.

Intimate and cosy, bright red Pine Bay Lodge has just nine guest rooms and a snug lounge area, complete with a roaring fire (perfect for thawing out after a day of outdoor pursuits).
The restaurant serves delicious local cuisine. And for those eager to dine out at sea, guests can book an evening dining experience at the resort’s Aurora Hideaway. This small cabin is perched on the pack ice in winter and is perfectly placed for stargazing and aurora spotting.
From dog sledding and snowmobiling to hovercraft trips on the ice, there’s a full menu of adrenaline-pumping activities on the menu here. Stay on the edge of the frozen sea in winter or wild swim in summer
