Lehtisaari is a small Arctic Island paradise on the Torne River. With just three cabins and suites, it is the perfect place to relax in silence while sitting by the fireplace. Each self-catering unit has a kitchenette with a fridge, two-burner stove with small oven, kettle, microwave and a dry toilet. There is no running water on the island, so you can collect fresh water from the river pump and clean yourself in the traditional Sami way, in your private sauna. Minimum 2 night stay.

The space
The island is only accessed by snowmobile during winter and by boat during summer, adding to your unique Norrland holiday. Your guide will collect you from the Kiruna Guidetur office and drive you out through the forest, then you can sit back and relax during a short boat/snowmobile-sled tour through the sparkling arctic landscape to your cabin on the island. The guide will show you all you need to know about staying at the camp and will pick you up in the same way upon departure. When booking, please advise us of your arrival time so we can book your return boat/snowmobile-sled transfer. (Price is 600 sek / each direction).

The cottage has electricity, dry toilet and a kitchenette consisting of a microwave, 2-burner stove, small oven, small fridge, kettle and coffee-maker. There is no running water on the island, so you will be completely immersed in nature. The guide who takes you to the island will show you how to collect fresh water from the river and how to use your private sauna.

I run the tourist company Kiruna Guidetur AB where we sell snowmobile tours, dog sledding tours, northern lights tours, Icehot tours etc in the winters and mountain hiking, midnight sun tours, canoeing, mountain biking tours in the summers. We also have some imaginative nicely located cottages by the Torne river, these are the ones we rent out through Airbnb. I am also a politician in Kiruna which is incredibly interesting, especially given the city move that we are facing.
