review 3 Jul 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The beautiful location staying in the forest next to a stunning lake with simple but cosy accommodation.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

It is a holiday for those who enjoy the simpler things of life and the beauty of nature so make sure you have the right clothing.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The accomodation was very low impact. The wild Sweden beaver and moose watching trips were fantastic. We learnt a lot about both animals and their habitat. The trip brought people to a remote area and employed local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Our family thought it was a brilliant holiday.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The outdoor feeling, back to the essence of being outside and adjusting to the rhythm of nature.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Prepare yourself for the basics, bring rain gear and read/ practise a bit with building fires. We came to the rescue of a fellow guest just in time to avoid a major flame burst.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely, owner, guides all were from the direct neighbourhood, the electrical motors for the beaver tour where silent and the zodiacs where supercool! The moose guide relied a bit much on the predictability of moose behaviour. Perhaps the tact that he has to drive and watch out makes the spotting more complicated. The fact that we had many youthful eyes in our car helped us spotting 10 moose and 4 red babies! Which was absolutely fantastic for a predicted amount of 5/6.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We had a fantastic time with our family of 4. Our teenage children did not miss their WiFi one moment, busy with making fire, canoeing, cutting wooden sticks (bring a pocket knife!), chopping wood even doing the dishes was fun. It is defenitely primitive, if you have never camped you might stretch yourself but what a fantastic environment to do so!

review 1 Sep 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Staying in Kolarbyn Ecolodge - cooking on an open fire and swimming in a beautiful (cold) lake

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Ensure you take some small luxury foods with you as they are nice to add to the basics provided in Kolarbyn Book on the Beaver/Moose/Wolf Safaris - you will not regret it. Food is locally source and the whole experience will stay with you forever.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. I have never sorted my rubbish as diligently as I did in Kolarbyn.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Up there with the best. I was worried about all the changes with public transport but everything went very smoothly
