Björkliden is one of Sweden’s most classic tourist destinations, dating back nearly a century. The first tourists arrived here in the beginning of the 1900’s, travelling by the newly built railroad connecting Kiruna and Narvik. They came in search of mountains, wilderness, and the feeling of freedom that echoes throughout these elusive alpine valleys. At the time, they were one and all pioneers in a then virtually unknown world. This is to us an honorable heritage to manage. Since 1926 we have been delivering lifelong memories for our guests, and we are dedicated to continually foster a sense of authenticity which remains true to our foundations. Throughout the shifting seasons, this is is a place for body and soul for all who have a spark of adventure within their hearts. We wish you a pleasant stay with us.

At your cabin
In some of our cabins you need to put one of your keycards in the little holder inside of the frontdoor for the lights in the cabin to work.
In some of our cabins, in order to get the kitchen to work, you will need to press a timer. In most of the cabins the timer is located in the hallway between the frontdoor and the kitchen.
In the black folder in the cabin there is a list of kitchen utensils which are supposed be be in the kitchen. If your cabin is missing some utensils please contact the reception, and we will replace what’s missing.
To turn on the sauna, in the cabins which has saunas, there are two knobs located on the bottom part of the sauna heater. One is to control the heat and you can turn that one to maximum capacity. The second knob is a timer. If you look closely on it you will see that it has the numbers 1-4 written on it. This represents the time that the sauna is active. If you turn it past the number 4, you will see the numbers 1-8 which is a timer. These figures represents hours and by setting the knob at one of them you get the number of hours before the sauna is turned on automatically. If you want the sauna to be hot when you get back after a day of skiing or hiking, these are thus the numbers you want to use. It takes about 30-45 minutes for the sauna to get hot.
It is a wonderful experience to roll in the cold snow while using the sauna. Just make sure you don’t lock yourself out of the cabin.
