Fjallnas: C&IT explores remote Swedish resort

Groups looking for something a bit different should consider Fjallnas, a remote 19th-century resort in the Swedish Highlands.

Once a retreat for Swedish Royalty, the property has been transformed as a luxury resort and offers 41 rooms. The original 1882 building has been spruced up and two new guest wings, a wood-and-glass chapel, and spa added.

Ideal for a management retreat or small incentive, the hotel has guides on hand to take guests out to explore the wilderness - hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter. It also has a pack of huskies to power sleighs.

Located on the road to the Norwegian border, the best way to get there is either to fly to Trondheim - Norwegian Airlines flies from Stansted and BA from Heathrow - from where it is a three-hour drive. Or change in Oslo and fly to Roros, a shorter drive and the hotel will collect guests.

The chapel, Aula Capella, can hold 80 for meetings, while the library has space for groups of 20. And if the hotel is not remote enough, Fjallnas also owns a log cabin, high up beside the mountain lake Bolagen, which can hold eight.
