IN CONCLUSION

Kolarbyn Eco-Lodge is “Sweden’s most primitive hostel” and is located in the big Bergslagen forest near the community Skinnskatteberg about 2 hours from Stockholm.

Guests from all around the world come to stay in our unique charcoal huts and experience nature. In Kolarbyn is no electricity, no running water from the tap and you chop your own wood to burn in the huts and cook over. We usually call this a “Back to basic” experience and this is something that we humans are demanding more and more. Besides accommodation we also arrange a number of activities such as moose, wolf and beaver safaris, survival courses, ridings, family adventures and much more exciting activities.

We are looking for volunteers and interns to help us during the summer, the adopted will welcome visitors, prepare before guests check in, meals, monitor and help guides on activities and perform other tasks included in the daily work at the hostel.
