About us

Our roots are in the coastal villages and archipelago of Kalix. We would like to invite You to our archipelago-lifestyle. We love our archipelago and our eight seasons. That is why we have created a number of safaris where You can experience the best of what the archipelago and the different seasons can offer – together with us. We hope You are curious to see, explore and taste everything the archipelago has to offer.

Welcome to nature, to the simplicity and to our home!

Genuinity on nature’s terms

Our goal is to give You memorable experiences in the nature of Swedish Lapland. Our ambition is for You to remember your time here for the rest of your life. We strive for what is simple and abide by nature’s rules.

Our vision

Our vision is to give You memorable experiences in the nature of Swedish Lapland. Our homecourt is the mountain, the forest and the sea. And we play by nature’s rules.

Skärgårdsön

Comfortable archipelago life at Skärgårdsudden

Skärgårdsudden is located right by the shore, where the Kalix River meets the Bothnian Bay. Our house is located 10 km from Kalix, in the coastal village of Nyborg and with direct contact to the archipelago – therefore we call our house “The archipelago house”. We had a clear vision when building the house – that it should blend into the environment of the archipelago and maximise the proximity to water, the light, the seasonal changes, nature etc.

Here You can find all the comforts You could wish for and need. Fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, whirlpool bathtub, sauna and a relaxation room. Wherever You are in the house, there is a view of the water. There are X bed places. Down by the water, You find our “Light House” – our boat house, furnished with a fold-out couch and a fireplace.

We also have our very own little beach, harbour and several big wooden decks, where You can hang out, cook food, sunbathe and enjoy the proximity to the archipelago.

With Skärgårdsudden as base, we offer lodging, snow-mobile safari, ice bathing, fishing, snow-shoe walks, ski-tours, outdoor cooking, marine courses and much more.

Rånön

Total harmony on Rånön Island

You go to Rånön when You want to experience complete calm and harmony. It is like being tossed back to the 1920’s. At our 19th century homestead “Nygården” we offer a simple but charmy lodging. We also offer activities such as mushroom picking, berry picking, hiking to one of the island’s mountains, or to watch the sunset and the midnight sun.

Tours in our beautiful archipelago with fishing, seal safari, sun and bath. Or why not visit us in wintertime? Experience the snow, the frozen Bothnian Bay, the silence, the cold and, with a bit of luck, the sparkling northern lights.

During summer our daughter runs her very own Elsa’s Café on the island. If You are lucky, You might taste her heavenly cinnamon buns or some of her other tasty pastries before they run out. Welcome to Rånön when You want peace and quiet.

Kalix Caviar

Kalix Caviar is a unique delicacy that can only be extracted from the fish vendace that is caught in the brackish waters of the Gulf of Bottenviken. Here several large rivers flow out with clean water from our mountains and mix with the salty sea water.

About geographical indication labeling

In 2010 Kalix Caviar became the first Swedish food product to be granted the EU geographical indication, Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), giving it the same high status as, for example, Champagne and Parmesan. The label has a number of requirements. Among other things, it specifies that only roe from vendace caught in the Bothnian Bay, within the municipalities of Haparanda, Kalix, Luleå and Piteå is allowed to be called “Kalix Löjrom” – Kalix Caviar.
