Our Story

Our Story

It´s something special with a building that has been in the family for over hundred years. That is why we felt that we had to make something of it when it stood empty for a couple of years. At 2019 We, Emma & Mikael, took over the place from a close relative and started a full renovation and restoration of the old timber building.

Taiga forest lodge is located in the forest outside the little village Nilivaara. A 45min drive from central Gällivare and a 1,5h drive from Kiruna. The Land surrounding the Lodge has been used for household farming and logging for over a century.

We are Emma & Mikael, and together with our two girls, we live an Arctic life close to nature in Nilivaara, 100 km above the arctic circle. Our everyday life goes in on with nature as an essential piece. Hiking, fishing, and collecting berries from the surrounding forests let us live a healthy life in balance with nature.


We want to share that arctic lifestyle with you and let you experience the healing abilities of the Arctic lifestyle.
