Guest Reviews

“Magical enchantead fairyland. The hostess leaves you from about 5 and you get a lot of confidence in managing yourself. Everything is very well organised and nothing is missing. They also have the nices compost outhouse you ever have been on. – and YES they have of course a sauna, the coolest sauna ever”

“Thank you for the incredible place Kolarbyn is. It was amazing to be able to experience the Swedish landscape and to just get away from the craziness of life for a bit. It is one of my favourite places in Europe and I hope that many others get to experience its wonder”

“Great place! The lodges are beautiful and the place is super charming. We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was fantastic and everything is well organized in a way that it makes it easy to be outside even if you’re not too used to it”

“I just wanted to say that it was a really wonderful and unique experience, one which I will remember and treasure for a long time
It was truly back to basics but truly wonderful stay just to relax and enjoy wild Sweden!
Especially the floating sauna was all kinds of wonderful (definitely last night when the lake was frozen and full moon was shining).
If the snow had come in yesterday it would have been even more magical but that would have been the cherry on top. I got a good look this morning with the snow already.
I wish you all the best and thank you again for an awesome stay, I truly enjoyed it!”

“Last week me and my girlfriend spent one night at Kolarbyn. Kolarbyn it’s a magical, stunning, unreal place. To those who ask me how Kolarbyn is I reply that “I’m agnostic, but if
there is a paradise, a Valhalla or something else I hope it looks like Kolarbyn”. I guess that many people will tell you how amazing Kolarbyn is and how fascinating your personality is in that forest. But I really left something of my heart in that wood”

“A sauna dream
The Kolarbyn adventure is fantastic. Top of the list for me was the floating sauna on the lake, followed by swims in the lake – oh it was so good! but I also enjoyed cutting wood, tracking the progress of the charcoal burners’ pit in August – they were up all night watching.
I shall never look at an English wrap in the same light again – they do their picnic food properly in Kolarbyn!  We bonded well too with the other Kolarbyn adventurers and shared many a laugh at our attempts to live ‘wild’. Kolarbyn gave us lots of support in this gentle introduction to living in nature at the eco lodge -I particularly liked being greeted by two lit candles when we arrived at our hut, and the ‘hoover’ marzipan sweets Malin brought us on the second day for our dessert – unexpected little touches that made the moment special. The people, including Malin who greeted us and came every day to sort out food etc, were absolutely lovely – kind, friendly, polite, cheerful and almost courtly at times. A very special holiday indeed.”

“It has been a week since we returned from Sweden – we had such a great time, meeting the nicest of people and seeing beautiful places. Our stay at Kolarbyn was definitely one of the absolute highlights, from the lovely hut to the beautiful surrounding and don’t forget the Sauna/bastu 😉
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for having us and for keeping this wonderful place alive
all the best”
