Eco tourists can pay £116 a night to stay at a lodge in a stunning forest in Sweden… with no showers, no electricity and no kitchens.
Guests at the Kolarbyn Eco Lodge, which is located in the wilderness around two hours from Stockholm, will stay in one of 12 traditional wood and mud huts where there is no running water, no electric, no restaurant on site, no supermarkets nearby and no kitchens to use.
Visitors to what has been dubbed Sweden’s most primitive hotel are encouraged to forage for mushrooms and berries and use the barbeque area to cook what they find.
Each hut has a fireplace, but guests are expected to chop their own wood for the fire from surrounding trees.
Fresh water for drinking, washing themselves and cleaning dishes can be found at a nearby spring.
Inside the huts there are two single beds with a sheepskin blanket, sleeping bags, a travel pillow and an ice sheet.
The hotel offers special wilderness survival skills training for those who really want to learn how to be self sufficient in the forest.
The nearest town to the lodge is Skinnskatteberg where guests can find restaurants, supermarkets and cafes. The cost to stay at Kolarbyn Eco Lodge starts at £116 per night. Wilderness survival enthusiasts can book directly on the lodge’s website: https://kolarbyn.se/.
