We offer the whole package. We provide the airport transfers, accommodation, guiding, car, boat and equipment. This saves you money. No dealing with a booking agency, separate hotelier or guide(s).  One contact, one service, one low price.

We deal with groups of no more than five people, making your stay peaceful and tailored to your wishes.

Once with us, whether you are fishing, birding, wildlife watching or simply enjoying a relaxing stay in Sweden everything is on your doorstep. No need for long drives to see and do what you came for.

You have exclusive use of our island and our sauna at no extra charge. 

We collect and return you to Umea airport, taking the stress and expense of hiring a car and driving out of your trip. 

We welcome beginners to experts. We can help you master fishing tactics, how to use boats, engines, fish finders, identify birds or simply share stories about Sweden. Likewise, we love to learn from our guests.

You can engage in your own hobbies. If fishing and birding are not your thing then why not indulge in your own pastimes e.g. Yoga, martial arts, photography, running, literature, meditation and even tennis.

Finally… in Northern Sweden you have a much better chance of witnessing Great grey owl, Moose, Beaver, Reindeer herds and the northern lights than you do further south.
