Welcome to our piece of paradise. Pine forests, lakes and rivers make up a unique wilderness. Let us show you what makes our part of Norrbotten so magical and special.

Pinetree Lodge is located in the middle of the forest, on the edge of Lake Saarijärvi in Särkimukka, a small town along Lake Lainio, about 150 km north of the Arctic Circle. Our accommodation offers all comforts, with a rustic Nordic design. We have a dining room, bar, and relaxation room with sauna. In summer you can start the day with a breakfast on our terrace. Finish fast-paced activities with a lovely drink in the bar and enjoy a delightful dinner prepared with local ingredients. We offer facilities like a hotel, but in a family atmosphere. During the summer of 2021, we will have different opening hours in the restaurant. Please contact us on +46 978-690 800 for updated info regarding the dates you are staying.

We invite you to visit us and learn more about Lapland. Set out with our knowledgeable guides and experience everything northern Sweden has to offer. We want every guest to have a unique experience and a memory for life. The heart of the business, besides our personnel and unique nature, has always been our beloved dogs. We have over 200 working sled dogs.

We offer year-round adventures. Come with us for a boat trip on the river in summer or a dog sled adventure along the same river in winter. Go on a hike and experience the midnight sun in summer or the northern lights in winter.

Join us on a unique adventure in the wilderness of northern Sweden. Come as a guest – leave as a friend.
