Winter weekend with sleigh & spa

A winter weekend with a sleigh ride through Hälsingland’s forests, music and stories from the past, delicious local dining and quality accommodation with access to a spa and massage. And with plenty of energy and time for adventure on kicksleds, down sledding hills, or just an invigorating winter walk. All just three hours from Stockholm by train.

The starting point for the winter weekend adventure is Orbaden Conference & Spa in Ljusnan, a gentle valley surrounded by Hälsingland’s blue mountains. Here, your stay begins with a three-course evening dinner and quality accommodation in a hotel room or spacious apartment.

The second day begins whenever you choose. You can have a quiet, slow start with a leisurely breakfast, and then a visit to the spa area with sauna, swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Guests have access to the spa the whole day.

Then, it’s time for the visit’s high point; a traditional and musical sleigh ride through the wintry Hälsingland landscape. Jingle Bells, wolf fur coats, stories and tales of days gone by and Northern Swedish horses snorting in the winter darkness. Nostalgia for grandma, fun for kids and parents and cool for the teenagers. At sunset you’re off, with a musical coachman sitting up front leading the way. When the music fades from the slatted flute, the sleigh starts to glide down horse-plowed roads through a dusky winter landscape.

The deep forests of Hälsingland offer stillness, silence and trails of wild animals such as wolves, moose, fox and hare. Here also lurks memories of the old days when the forest was teeming with human life. And along the way, you might get to hear the story of the buck with silver horns, bear encounters past and present, and German deserter stories from World War II. On top of all this, piping hot blueberry mulled wine and lamb sausage are served during the tour.

The goal of the tour is the Knight’s Sword grassland cottage. It breaks the winter chill with warming fire and candles, and inside the cottage a Hälsingland meal is served on old-fashioned floral porcelain. The food is made from local produce and local food, and enjoyed together with acoustic music and more stories by the fire. After less than four hours, it is time to return to Orbaden. You and the other participants choose between kicksled or walking through Hälsingland night.

After another nice hotel breakfast, there is time for your own winter adventures. Depending on what attracts most, you and other guests can choose between a discovery tour with the hotel’s kicksled, a refreshing winter walk, adventure on the sledding hills or a leisurely ski in the snow-heavy winter forest.

"Blev helt hänförd av slädtur, musik, spark tillbaka. Vill komma åter och uppleva denna natur och gästfria människor. Svårt att bryta upp och återgå till det stressiga livet i Stockholm."
