Kolarbyn is an awe-inspiring adventure eco-lodge located by the glade of the stunning lake Skärsjön. It is Sweden's most primitive hotel, no electricity, water collected from the spring, sheep skin rugs for warmth, candles and a crackling fire to help you drift off to sleep. You will be awakened by songbirds and a crisp dip in the lake to set you off on your day full of moose safaris, forest walks, canoeing, mushroom and berry picking. If it's all sounding a little strenuous, never fear, all of that outdoor adventure-ism will soon be blissed away by a bonfire BBQ and a steamy sauna in their sauna that floats on the lake! You may ask what this has to do with design, but in fact I think Kolarbyn is at the true essence of design: simple, mindful and oozing with natural charm and style.
