Where you’ll be

Uvanå, Varmland County, Sweden

Uvanå is set in a small hamlet which has 12 permanent residents. It is set on the northern most shore of a large lake surrounded by forests and areas of natural beauty. There are many walking tracks and cycling routes. There are numerous lakes in the area to visit and explore.
There is a safe bathing and picnic area just a 5 minute walk from the house.
We have 2 open canoes and life jackets and a small boat with electric motor at the house.
In summer you can pick berries in the forests and see lots of wildlife.
The area is home to Moose, Beavers, Lynx, wolf and brown bears! You can go on organised safaris to see moose and beavers.

In winter there are many ski areas within a 45-60 minute radius of the house and cross country skiing on the doorstep! If you fancy snow shoe hiking, ice skating or husky dog sledding let us know and we can help you organise!

Hi, I live in Cambridge, England with my husband Mike. We have 2 adult sons, Sam and Tom. I have spent most of my life working as a nurse and Midwife but since 2015 I started my own business designing and making jewellery.
I love the outdoors and nature, participating in different sports, swimming, cycling, hiking and canoeing!
We love Sweden and try and visit several times a year. It is such a beautiful unspoilt country and I love to see it throughout all of the seasons.
