Jopikgården, Luleå

For a taste of authentic Sweden, we can’t get enough of the quaint Jopikgården on the archipelago’s Hindersön island. This is a unique property with four individually designed en suite rooms all boasting a true Swedish flavour, offering an extremely relaxing experience for you to get away from it all.  A veritable gourmet heaven, here you’ll find time-honoured cooking methods that the hotel is renowned for. We loved the breakfast of coffee and waffles with locally sourced berries and ice cream. Simply delicious.


Set on the beautiful island of Hindersön, on the Luleå archipelago is where you’ll find this charming Swedish escape. Just a stone’s throw away from the surrounding frozen ocean you’ll find a wealth of activities including ice-fishing, snowmobiling and dog-sledding. And with the backdrop of the 1200 islands and endless icy vistas, the views are spectacular.

your room

The hotel oozes traditional Swedish charm and is decorated in a farmhouse style. The walls are adorned with photos from days gone by when seal hunters and fishermen lived on these islands and etched out a living in a harsh but beautiful climate. Jopikgården has four exclusive hotel rooms with comfortable en suite facilities, all new and well renovated in a traditional style.

why we like it

What’s not to love at this quaint, truly Scandinavian bolthole? We adore the homely atmosphere where you can curl up with a mug of freshly made cocoa and stare out at the frosty landscape, a truly dream-like setting.
