Welcome to 'Lapland Lights' - our cosy cottage in the peaceful village of Svanstein, 10km north of the Arctic Circle. Stunningly located on the shore of Kuittasjärvi, just where a small island marks the point the lake turns into a river. Across the lake you can see Svanstein Ski centre, which is 5 minutes' drive away and has 16 slopes. The house is newly renovated and in the outbuilding is a traditional wood-fired sauna with views over the river and island.
The house has three bedrooms - two upstairs and one downstairs. Bedroom 1 is very large with a view of the river. It features a large double bed and a daybed that can be expanded into a double, so in total the room sleeps 4. Bedroom 2 has a lake view. It sleeps 2 in a comfy double bed and includes a TV/DVD player. Bedroom 3 (downstairs) also has a lake view and features a daybed - which can be used as a single or double - and a foldaway writing desk. Upstairs there is a small north-facing balcony - the perfect place to set up your camera and wait for the Northern Lights! The house also has a bathroom and toilet (both downstairs) and a brand new kitchen and living area. There is a daybed in the living area, which can be expanded into a double, meaning the house can accommodate up to 10 people.
The house is set in a fantastic location whatever time of year you visit. In the winter you can walk out onto the frozen lake to watch the Northern Lights, try ice fishing, go skiing (slope, off-piste or cross-country) or just enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the Arctic environment. In summer you can experience the midnight sun, swim in the cool waters, and take advantage of the Swedish 'freedom to roam' by exploring the local mountains and forests.
