- Watch for Moose, Beavers and other wild animals
- Go for hikes, canoe at the lake, use the floating sauna, collect berries & mushrooms
- Local guides and small groups for more genuine experiences
This adventure is ideal for nature loving families, couples and friends who are looking to do something truly different and memorable. You will have plenty of time to explore nature at your own pace. And if you travel with kids, they will LOVE it here!
The whole idea with Kolarbyn Ecolodge is back-to-nature and do-it-yourself.
Time to eat: You prepare your own meals over open fire, and we provide the outdoor cooking equipment that you need. There is a foodshed where you find ingredients like pasta, tomato sauce, bread, müsli, eggs, coffee, tea, juice, fresh vegetables, dried fruits, spices, pancake-mix and water. It will take a bit of time, but everything tastes so much better outdoors. Enjoy your meal by the campfire!
- Cook over the open fire
- Do your dishes in the stream
- Recycle your waste
Arrive and meet with our host at 2 pm. There will be a welcome session by the campfire later in the afternoon. Our outdoorsy host will let you know how everything works, where to fetch water, how to start a fire, how to sleep well in the forest and more. Then place your bags in your hut, unroll your sleeping bag and light some candles. We hope that you will feel like home.
Go for a hike, take a wild swim in the lake, go for a sauna or just rest by the campfire.
Cook your own dinner over open fire.
As night falls you enter your sleeping bag and close the door of your very own forest hut.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES & BEAVER SAFARI
Wake up to birds song whenever you feel like getting up.
Prepare your breakfast using the ingredients from the shed.
You will have a whole day to explore the surrounding forest. You can go for a hike in the woods, explore the lake by canoe, relax at the sandy beach, go for a wild swim, go birdwatching, pick endless amounts of berries in season, mushrooms and edible plants, meditate among tall trees, chop firewood or just hang out by the campfire with the others.
Our Canadian style canoes are stable and safe and each fits two adults and two kids. Canoeing is the ideal way to explore the lake and the surrounding forest. Use our waterproof map where we have marked out some of the highlights of this lake called Skärsjön. It is a relatively small lake but it is good enough for an hour or two of paddling.
Cook your own lunch over the open fire.
In the evening our guide will take you out for a Beaver Safari. We travel together by minivan to another nearby lake. We enjoy an outdoor evening meal before we enter our rubber boat and spend the evening silently cruising on the lake and river in search of beavers and other wildlife. We return to Kolarbyn late at night.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES & MOOSE SAFARI
Enjoy another day in the forest. There is always more to explore.
In the late afternoon, you will meet up with one of our wildlife guides again. This time for a Moose Safari. We travel by minivan to another part of the forest which is exceptionally good for moose watching. We see moose on nearly all tours. We will have a camp fire meal somewhere in the forst and return to Kolarbyn late at night.

Rustic bed in a forest hut at Kolarbyn Ecolodge. Sleeping bag equipment is included.
Single room supplement: Each hut has room for 2 persons. But with an extra bed, you can fit one small child in the same hut (under 12 years old). Or you can choose to pay the single room supplement for one person so that you get two huts and more space for bags. You cannot sleep 3 adults in one hut as the extra bed can only hold one small child.
Please arrive at the reception at 2 pm. You have access to your huts until 11 am on the last day.
For nature lovers who are not afraid to sleep in a forest hut. We have a recommended minimum age of 8 years since we are out until late after dark on the guided tours. Please note that the long sun hours during June and July means we have to stay out until late, even until midnight, but you will have the chance to sleep in the mornings. Participants should be able to walk in the forest. Walking level is easy.
SMALL GROUPS FOR A MORE GENUINE EXPERIENCE
There will be max 7 persons with one guide. With two guides there may be up to 14 participants out during the same evening. Kolarbyn Ecolodge has availability for 24 guests in total.
