The best stay in Sweden again! Our favorite place because of the beautifull nature, the quiteness and our dear friends Malin and Magnus. Our new experience in the Tipi (a Sami tent) on a little private island was great and our surprise walk, that was included the arrangement, was also very nice!! We had also the best weather for a splendid holliday. An experience we never forget!
