It’s nearly impossible not to feel cozy inside this idyllic Swedish pod that gives a whole new meaning to the word “glamping.”

Nestled in the woods near Falun (about three hours north of Stockholm), four glampers could fit in this rental, which sits right by Lake Siljan and close to charming villages and the ski area of Borlänge. The space is complete with a plush full-size bed and twin bunk beds, plus a kitchen for preparing drinks and snacks. However, guests are invited to cook in the communal space where glampers are treated to daily provisions for breakfast and dinner.

The small space is flooded with sunlight coming from its windows that offer wooded views. In winter, the surrounding snowcapped trees might make you worried about the cold, but the floor is heated and a wood-burning stove provides extra warmth—and coziness.

This spot is perfect for friends, couples, or even families. Nearby adventure awaits thanks to a multitude of options, depending on the season. Hiking trails and cycling paths, kayaking, canoeing, tennis, golf, a pool, skiing, and winter sports are just outside or a short distance away.

Nearby day trips abound as well. Close by is the town of Falun, known for its historic mine and once the biggest copper mine in Europe known as “Sweden’s treasure chest.” And the 1870s church Ore Kyrka will offer major inspiration with its floor-to-ceiling decor. The nearby Dalhalla is a former limestone quarry-turned-theater, where shows come with the option of food and drink.

You’ll feel secluded enough to get your glamping fix but will still be able to check your phone, as the property comes equipped with electricity and cell service. Rates start at $415 a night. Check out the listing on Glamping Hub.
