Malmagen, Sweden

Fjällnäs, Sweden’s oldest mountain hotel, is an exclusive sanctuary where you can experience continual, dramatic changes of nature. We live with this unspoilt wilderness right on our doorstep during eight totally different seasons. The air is pure and whenever you want, you can quench your thirst with water from the clear mountain lake. When Fjällnäs’s first visitors arrived more than 130 years ago, they were attracted by the pure, unspoilt, beauty – and this is still the same today.

Welcome to our country, our mountains, and experience how your senses become alive in this immense and unspoilt wilderness.

In 1882 an intrepid entrepreneur, Jonas Aslund, built Fjallnas, one of Sweden’s first mountain hotels. It soon became the wilderness retreat of choice for Sweden’s and Norway’s royal circle, but over the years sank into disrepair and neglect. Now, another entrepreneur, the former financier Lars Bertmar and his wife, Christina, have reinvented the resort for a new generation using a team of architects and talents that include the Iranian-born interior designer Shideh Shaygan. The result is a balance of rustic and luxury. Old folk-style buildings now have clean, modern interiors, and the lodge — an expansive wood barnlike building — looks like something out of a Wes Anderson film, with a menacing stuffed bear at the entrance, lots of old books in the library and a restaurant lined with windows that look out on the picture-perfect mountain lake rimmed with old crooked trees. The interiors — with details like Missoni towels, arrangements of vintage ceramic vases in the rooms, natural wood saunas at the spa — reflect the sensibility. It’s the ideal retreat to return to after the long hikes, dog sledding adventures or cross-country skiing trips at this end-of-the-world destination in the wild Swedish highlands. Rates start at 325 euros a night, including breakfast and a daily guided mountain excursion; (46-684) 2303
