Even if you’re not planning on hitting the slopes, Dundret Ski Resort is a wonderfully scenic place to base yourself.
The resort is just a short drive south of Gällivare, atop the mountain of the same name.
The whole resort has magnificent views back towards the town, which seems to be swallowed up by the dense pine forests that stretch off as far as the eye can see.
Options at the ski resort run from self-catering cottages and flats to hotel-standard accommodation, with prices rising in line with the level of luxury.
The cheapest option for solo travellers and couples is to go for one of the simple, windowless “skier” rooms, which come with a set of bunk beds, plus a TV and a private en-suite bathroom.
One step up in terms of comfort, the resort’s single and double rooms are similar but have windows. Both of these room types come with bed sheets (not always included in Sweden) plus breakfast at the resort’s restaurant.
If you’re travelling in a group, you might fancy hiring one of Dundret’s self-catering cottages, which sleep up to six people at a time and each come with their own kitchen. You can either bring bed linen with you or pay extra to hire some sets when you arrive. You’ll also be expected to clean the place on departure, but per-night rates are relatively low, making these cottages ideal for longer ski breaks.
Another option is to go for one of the resort’s self-catering flats. These also come with their own kitchen and dining area, and sleep up to four people at a time (you can even hire these as a single or double room if you prefer).
Whichever type of accommodation you go for, the slopes are within easy reach – ski lifts start a short scoot away from the resort’s main entrance.
