Lapland is near! Flight time is approximately 1.15 minutes from Arlanda airport in Stockholm to Kallax, Luleå. From there, only 1.5 hours drive to Vuollerim.

In Vuollerim, the big and small Lule River comes together and flows into one of the largest rivers In Sweden. This River has characterized the district since time immemorial. People have come together and lived here for over 6000 years. The game-rich forests and fish-filled rivers have offered plenty of food. This and much more is the basis for the well-known “Vuollerim spirit”-  warm and open people. Here you will meet not a tourist resort – you meet a village!

You will stay at  Hotel Vuollerim Gästgiveriet, in the heart of Vuollerim, where each hotel room has been decorated by various villagers. Additional activities may be available by request – please let us know what your interests are.
