4 Nights (Winter)

Brandon Lodge and Sapmi Nature Camp

BRÄNDÖN LODGE is located on the coast of Swedish Lapland near Luleå. The hotel standard cabins overlook the sea and islands of the Luleå archipelago.

With a total of 1,300 islands and only 100 residents, it is a unique environment that is great for boating in summer and autumn. From December to April the sea around the island freezes up to a meter thick which is perfect for winter activities. The main building is a log cabin that includes a restaurant and a lounge and relaxation area. Surrounding the main building are 15 cabins overlooking the sea. Each cabin has been recently renovated and includes 1 one bathroom, two bedrooms with 2 single beds in each room, a lounge room, and a front-facing covered porch. The single beds in one room can be made up to a double. Winter clothing is provided to all guests and Brändön Lodge is the departure point for a wide range of fantastic activities all year round including their signature archipelago pack ice snowmobile tour in the winter.

Day 4: Sapmi Nature

Today we will take a rare excursion into the daily life of reindeer herding. Lennart’s brother Kenneth has the main responsibility for the day to day reindeer herding and one of the most popular activities at the camp is to take a drive to the location of the reindeer herd where we find Kenneth and his family.

Dinner each evening comes from nature and are most often foraged, hunted or fished by Lennart himself. Local meats such as Moose or Reindeer and fish such as trout or arctic char are commonly on the menu and are complemented with local berries, herbs and vegetables.
