STAYING AT CAMP THREE RIVERS
Camp Three Rivers is located by Torne and Tärendö Rivers. We offer three and six night stays at the camp from late November to early April.
The camp has two two-person sleeping huts with single beds, one double bed hut and one 3-4 person hut. There is a main cabin with kitchen and common area, and a wood-fired sauna. The buildings are warmed with wood-fired stoves and you will be warm and cosy indoors and at night. Guests are welcome in the dining cabin anytime to sit, take it easy or chat over a warm drink.
At the camp you will have access to equipment and the help of the host to get you started on activities including snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and ice-fishing. You will be in the perfect spot for observing Northern Lights.
You have a good chance of seeing reindeer or moose in the area. Otter, forest birds, arctic hare and fox are more elusive but are sometimes spotted. Lynx and bear exist in the area but are almost never seen.
Meals are enjoyed together with the host and other guests. We offer simple but satisfying and tasty meals based on local and organic ingredients. Local wild meat or fish is served at one meal each day. The other meals are vegetarian. We can cater to most special diets with advance notice. Mealtimes are generally around 8 am, 1 pm and 6 pm, but variation is possible depending on the wishes of the group. Tea and coffee is available at all times.
The sauna is fired in the evenings. It's the perfect place to relax and there is warm water for bathing. Guests are free to take turns using the sauna for the sake of privacy.
Guests are welcome, but not required, to help with chores around the camp including chopping and carrying wood and fetching water.
All stays at the camp include pick up and drop off in Kiruna by car or van. As there are no roads all the way to the camp, the final kilometre to the camp will be on snowshoes. Your bags will be transported to the camp by sled.
