Skålsjögarden Timber Lodge - Explore nature!

About us

We are a family from the Basel region in Switzerland. In June 2022 we emigrated to the beautiful Skålsjön in Hälsingland, Sweden. We love nature and enjoy living in harmony with it. Sustainability is very important to us, because only if we live sustainably, our descendants will be able to live at all. For us, the rather simple and somewhat quiet country life in the Finnish forest between Bollnäs and Falun in central Sweden is the fulfillment of a dream. By taking over the vacation resort Skålsjögården, we have realized our dream of independence. We are happy to receive guests and share with them our privilege to live in this beautiful place.

Emigration has many facets and backgrounds, some of which we would like to briefly discuss. First of all, it is very important for us to state that we still consider Switzerland as one of the best places to live. The reason why we left Switzerland is rather because we are not afraid to leave our comfort zone and hoped to find something in Sweden that is no longer available in Switzerland - true freedom! Our idea of true freedom, is to do what you want (without disturbing others), without being disturbed or disturbing anyone. Due to the very low population density in the Swedish hinterland, you can actually find true freedom here.
