About two hours from sophisticated Stockholm, at the gate of Lapland, you’ll find one of Europe’s last wilderness areas.

Here, Grano Beckasin Lodge offers accommodations in “bird nests,” comfortable tree houses high above ground, in addition to cabins and camping options.

Grano Beckasin, which opened on June 10, is a unique nature destination where you can find large mountain areas, lakes, and several large national parks.

You can also find Sweden’s last untouched wild rivers, which flow undisturbed on their journey to the sea. The marshes harbor golden cloudberries. Many people travel for miles to pick the marsh’s “yellow gold.”

A Unique Setting

The location attracts people who are not afraid to venture out into the woods and fields, look for new experiences, and enjoy the stunning surroundings.

The forest consists mostly of pine and spruce, but large-scale logging has reduced the number of old forests, which are a vital part of the biodiversity there.

The spirit of Grano Beckasin is anchored in thinking about the environment. Ecological thinking permeates everything from nature guided walks in the forest, the food, and the building materials.

All the activities are carried out with great respect for the local environment. For example, you can go river-rafting, dog-sledding, go on a moose safari, or take an herbal walk.

The food that is served is organic and local. The meat and fish comes from local forests and lakes.

“We want to give the guests a whole experience with food, accommodation, and activities. The experience aims to open visitors’ minds—becoming calm to see the small in the large and the large in the small,” explains Angelica Johansson, CEO of Grano Beckasin Lodge.

At Grano Beckasin Lodge you live in the middle of nature, yet with full hotel conveniences and amenities.
