Kolarbyn Eco-Lodge is more like a hostel in the woods – and we’re all for it. Prepare to actually live outdoors and enjoy a simpler life, where fetching spring water & splitting firewood are commonplace among guests.
Shared huts and primitive luxuries justify its affordability, which still seems like a super bargain when it comes to an authentic barebones camping resort on Swedish forestland.
