Staying at Camp Three Rivers

At Camp Three Rivers you will live simply and closely experience the forest wilderness. We offer 3 and 6 night stays during the months of June and September and from late November to early April.

The camp has four two-person sleeping huts, a main cabin with kitchen and common area, and a wood-fired sauna. One of the huts is bigger with space for a family of three or four. 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 in the winter and canoeing, fishing and walking in the summer. In the winter and autumn you will be in the perfect spot for Northern Lights.  In the spring you can enjoy the light of the midnight sun and endless day.

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.  The sauna is great for relaxing 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.  Before going to the camp we will make a stop at our guesthouse in Junosuando village.  Here you can leave any extra bags, get fitted with outdoor clothes and have a snack before we head out on our adventure. As there are no roads all the way to the camp, the final kilometre to the camp will be on snowshoes in the winter, and foot and boat in spring and autumn.  In winter, your bags will be transported to the camp by sled. In spring and autumn you should be prepared to carry your own bag and bring your things in a backpack.
