Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Jokkmokk - Bjorknas Lodge
2+2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Spa With Sauna
Bjorknas Lodge is an exclusive private waterfront property above which offers both adventures and relaxation. Here, on the frontier of Europe´s last wilderness Laponia, you can enjoy unlimited outdoor life and stunning experiences all year-around. During summer you can experience the magic of the Midnight Sun and have a unique summer holiday experience. Everything from world-class fishing to bathing in lakes with crystal clear water. In winter you can experience the Artic winter and go snowmobiling in the wilderness.
Even if Bjorknas is located above the Arctic circle it is easy to go there. Fly to Lulea from Stockholm (several connections every day). Then rent a car and drive for 2,5 hours and you will find yourself in Europe´s last wilderness.
In summer you can buy a fishing card that entitles you to fish in hundreds of lakes, streams and rivers. Fishing gear and boat can be rented.
In winter you can go snowmobiling in the surroundings or go to Kvikkjokk and up the majestic Tarra Valley. Snowmobiles can be rented.
If you like to go skiing there are two great resorts nearby, 45 min drive to Kåbdalis and 1 hour drive to Dundret Gallivare.
If you are a skilled freerider you can go heli-skiing at massifs Tarrekasie (1828 masl) and Staika (1795 masl). Substantial drop heights of between 900 and 1350 meters are offered with up to 7 km of off-piste runs in untouched high alpine environment.

This is a very special home with a welcoming atmosphere and adventures for family and friends. In winter you may start your day with outside activities such as cross country skiing, fish jigging or snowmobiling in an arctic climate.

Hike in the beautiful woods and surroundings, or in the four national parks just a few hours from the house. End your day by the dinner table filled with laughter and culinary experiences. Yes, this old beautiful farmhouse is the one you wished you lived in.
