Welcome to Frostviken!


welcome in frostviken

Along the great Vildmarksvägen (Wilderness Road), in the rough north-west of Sweden you will find one of the most wild and beautiful regions in Scandinavia. Frostviken is a huge adventure playground for the young and the young at heart, a gem for nature-lovers, sportsmen, photographers and artists. It's the perfect travel destination for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the North for the pleasure of all the senses.

The unique landscape with rocks and mountains, hills covered with wild flowers, crystal clear rivers and lakes and enchanted fairytale forests share many types of animals, such as brown bear, arctic fox, reindeer, elk, beaver and golden eagle, with only 980 people. Despite - or perhaps because of - the thin population you can be sure to be welcomed with open arms. From a campfire in the snow, a fishing tour, a horse-riding trip or a chance encounter in the mountains many of our guests not only take home unforgettable experiences and wonderful pictures but also the addresses of new friends.
