Sörbyn, Swedish Lapland - Wellness Nature and Relaxation
Our venue is Sörbyn Lodge, a small private lodge with only 8 hotel rooms , restaurant, lounge and dining area plus a sauna house overlooking the frozen sea. During your stay, the chef at the lodge will prepare delicious and healthy breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Sörbyn Lodge is located in Swedish Lapland only one hour north of the coastal Luleå and deep in the Swedish Lapland forest..
During your stay at the retreat a local guide will be on hand for part of the day and they will provide an insight into the arctic lifestyle as well as lead an easy daily 1 hour experience. Examples of these are snowshoeing, traditional skiing or perhaps northern lights watching. In addition there are a number of longer optional winter activities that you can choose to add to your itinerary.
If you are interested in deepening your practice and the journey to thyself while retreating into Swedish Lapland, then this is the retreat for you. Swedish Lapland is much more than a destination, but a way of life. Considered by many who live here as the Arctic Soul to a wild terrain. To really immerse yourself in the culture and lifestyle is to explore this magical wonderland.
