The Outpost Lodge, once a grocery store in the quaint village of Mårdsel, has undergone an impressive renovation to meet high standards of luxury. Nestled below the Arctic Circle in the heart of Swedish Lapland, and about 1.5 hours away from Luleå Airport, the lodge is surrounded by the meandering Råne River. Its location provides access to vast stretches of wilderness, with a unique terrain that makes it an ideal spot for snowmobiling. The area boasts miles of frozen wetlands that guides eagerly introduce to guests, including the thrilling opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle.
