Photos and Description of this holiday cabin in Gällivare - Lappeasuando wilderness camp
Our wilderness camp offers you a unique experience all through the year. It impresses with the wonderful location in the middle of the wilderness, without any roads or access path, between Kalix and Kaitum, two of Sweden's most pristine rivers. The authentic atmosphere of the wood-heated sauna and a traditional Sami tent is an extremely relaxing environment, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
There is approximately 2.5 km distance between our main complex and wilderness camp. In winter you can reach the camp with snowmobile safaris, dog sleds, skis or snowshoes. In summer, you can choose between the traditional river boats or canoes.
The complex is divided into several buildings. Sauna/ laundry house, main building with kitchen / dining room and various sleeping cabins of 2-5 persons. Separate toilet building. Alternative source for electricity and water is drawn from the well.

About Barbara Willen
Being a native of Switzerland and nature-loving athlete I emigrated in 1996 to the north. First to Finland, where then sled dogs came into my life. In 2003 I founded the travel agency Boreal Tours and organised / led many interesting adventure trips, nature tours and exciting journeys in Northern Scandinavia.
In 2008 I bought the property in Lappeasuando, Swedish Lapland. On one hand, to rediscover the vicinity of the mountains and on the other hand, to build a lodge with accommodation and activities for nature-loving people like me.
The unique sled dogs are my primary interest even today.
Barbara Willen purchased this cabin in 2008
Why Barbara Willen chose Gällivare
In Lappeasuando I see the endless possibilities for nature lovers. The beauty and tranquillity of nature has a ' Healing ' power. I want to offer an island for the guests amidst their daily hustle and bustle and bring them closer to this peaceful nature. The location is excellent, during both summer and winter and there is something here for every need.
What makes this cabin unique
