COASTAL ARCTIC CABINS
Brandon Lodge sits majestically on an island surrounded by the frozen Bothnian Bay, just south of the Arctic circle. The main Lodge is on two levels - the ground floor has the reception with an open fire warming the lounge area along with the cozy bar. On the first floor, the welcoming restaurant has enviable views overlooking the frozen expanse from its windows and balcony.
In the grounds of the lodge just by the frozen sea edge there is a small log cabin where guests can light the log burner and keep vigil, waiting for the aurora to appear. The skies here are often crystal clear, with so little light pollution, the perfect place for aurora viewing while keeping warm.
Surrounding the main lodge on either side are 15 comfortable detached cabins scattered along the forest edge, all with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, sitting area and small kitchenette.
The lodge restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and a two or three-course dinner, featuring local produce such as wild game, fish fresh from the sea and berries from the forest. For something special, it is possible to experience a candle light dinner on the frozen arctic sea. The Aurora Hideaway is a small cabin where your guide cooks you a meal over the outdoor fire. With a roaring fire inside to keep warm and tea lights all around creating a magical romantic atmosphere. Snowshoes are brought on the tour so you can go for a short walk while the meal is being prepared. Don’t forget to keep a watch for the dancing Northern Lights.
Explore the Arctic ice and snowy wilderness by snowshoe, snowmobile, dog sled or even nordic skis which can be hired to use locally. We have chosen four of the popular activities as part of this trip, but these are flexible if you wish to change these for anything else.
The main lodge offers a lounge and bar area to relax and share stories by the fire, as well as a separate sauna cabin with outdoor jacuzzi which can be pre-booked for a private experience.
