Stilleben is a place for quiet reflection. You won't find TVs here but you will find endless nature trails and plenty of local wildlife. Besides moose, reindeer, deer and a variety of birds, which you can spot without too much effort, this region, Gästrikland is also home to predators such as the bear, wolf, lynx and wolverine.
Explore our surrounding forests on animal trails, past feeding marks, footprints and resting places to capture the perfect picture. Winter brings with it alpine skiing, dogsledding, snowshoeing, icefishing and horse sledding. Summer activities include bear safari, marsh walking, fishing tours and much more. We can pre-order a safari for this morning.
When you are ready, you will move to your private island cabin. Motoring over mirrored waters, you will pass deserted island upon island, each ringed by emerald reeds and grey boulders. Docking at an island no bigger than a football pitch, you will find a red-and-white cabin: your home for the next two nights.
There is no electricity on Stilleben’s private island, but the cabin comes with a gas-powered fridge, stove and indoor loo.
You will receive a cool box of ingredients for you to make meals with on the island, plus homemade jams, bread and knackebrot (traditional crisp bread). There are staple dry goods, including pasta, in the cupboard.
A little red cabin in the forest, on a private island somewhere in middle Sweden - it doesn't get more typically Swedish than this! Let the pace of life slow to a leisurely stroll, a gentle paddle in the canoe or a refreshing swim in the lake. Simply relax, enjoy the view and listen to the sound of nature.
Th Cabin has space for a maximum of 5 people (a double bed and space for 3 in single beds) and is only accessible by boat.There is a shower, but if you prefer Swedish, try a dip in the lake!
Your meals are based on permaculture design principles with a heavy emphasis on locally produced and organic food. Your stay at the cabin is about reducing our impact on the environment and being at one with nature. The organic ingredients for your meal will be provided along with a mouth-watering recipe – cook at your leisure!
