Sweeden camping

1/10 Digital detoxing in a quirky eco-lodge in Sweden

Live like a hobbit in Sweden’s most primitive hotel. With no electricity or running water, inflict a digital detox on your teen in this grass-covered, wooden forest hut on the banks of Lake Skärsjön. Spend idyllic days fishing for salmon and foraging for wild berries and by night take a guided safari in search of wild
wolves, elk and beavers. Despite the rustic appearance, the huts are very cosy and furnished with sheepskin throws, wood-burners and sturdy wooden beds. For the true Swedish experience, borrow the camp’s boat and row out to the floating wooden sauna in the middle of the lake.


Best for kids aged: 10 and over.

Price: From £35 per adult and £17 per child per night.

Getting there: Kolarbyn is a two-hour train ride north of Stockholm. Norwegian flies to Stockholm from £30 one way.
