'old school, which surprises with an authentic atmosphere, friendly hosts, super breakfast, and lovely sauna'
Gafsele is a village in the South of Lapland in the Västerbotten region, Sweden. The hostel is situated in Gafsele's former school, on the banks of the river Ångermanälven. The building is a retro 'fifties' building with lots of character and history.
Our clean and fresh rooms, sauna, and naturally beautiful rural setting invite you to relax and let go. We offer rooms with hostel standards: most rooms have modern bunk beds, and guests share toilets, showers, and a sauna. We only rent out per room. So everyone can have privacy.
The environment is a paradise for hunters, fishermen, snow- and other outdoor lovers. Why not take a ride on one of our snow sparks? Or hop on one of our SUP boards for a paddling tour on the river.
We like to customize your holiday so it will fit just you.
You can have an activity-packed holiday, with a new activity every day. Or you can 'ta det lugnt' as the Swedes say: take it easy. Maybe a mix of those.
Whatever you choose to do, at night you come back to our friendly and tranquil hostel.
Our building is a former school. It was founded as a missionary school in 1842, to improve the education of and care for the children of the Sápmi, more commonly known as Laps. Over time the school was situated in different buildings. The current building was the last one, built in the '50s. The former school is situated close to the banks of the river Ångermanälven, in the middle of Sweden and near road 90, which is part of the Sagavägen. We host a maximum of 22 guests. With our large common spaces, this is a guarantee that we never will be crowded.
