Gyllene Brunnen

With a huge, high-ceilinged barn and idyllic meadows all around, it’s no surprise Gyllene Brunnen, in the Uppsala region northwest of Stockholm, is popular with wedding parties. You’ll bed down in one of a handful of stylish yurts outside the picture-perfect red farmhouse, each with comfy mattresses, woollen throws and a dinky wood burner. Outside, a simmering hot tub and outdoor shower are there to soothe and cleanse you, with forest and field for miles around.

Bästekille Gårdshotell

This quaint farmhouse in far-southern Hjӓlmaröd is as cute as a button, with its icing-white walls and neat black rooftop. You can sleep inside it, but more fun is the scattering of bubble tents pitched in its apple orchards and meadows, equipped with snuggly beds, wood burners, mini fridges, outdoor barbecues and plush armchairs facing the view. Breakfast is delivered in a basket: home-baked granola and oven-warm bread, cheese and jam, as well as local apple juice.

Surflogiet Gotland

On the Swedish island of Gotland, on a wild stretch of pine-backed beach, this stylish surf camp attracts a young crowd of surfers and yoga fans. Roomy cream canvas tents are dressed in Instagram-friendly style, with woven throws, wicker pouffes and even the odd houseplant. Daily surf sessions are the focus, but it wouldn’t be a Swedish glampsite without a beachside sauna – for optimum results, sweat out your toxins before taking a run at the bracing Baltic.

Aurora Mountain Lodge

In the far northern reaches of Sweden’s true wilderness, Lapland, Aurora is a smart but basic wooden lodge that’s a base for husky sledders, snowmobilers and Northern Lights chasers. There are cabins and bungalows of different sizes to suit all travellers; try the glass-fronted and -sided Aurora Suites to let the magical night sky right into your room. Get to know the resident horses and huskies, stop by the cosy spa, then head out to experience the local Sami culture – only 80 people live in this area year-round, and the most common profession is reindeer herding.

Kolarbyn Eco-Lodge

Don’t expect room service here – at Kolarbyn, a small community of guests forage for food, cook over an open fire and fetch water from a spring. Though you’re only two hours from Stockholm here, the 12 hobbit-worthy, moss-covered eco-huts blend into the landscape, and there’s no electricity or shower: you bathe, delightfully, in a nearby lake. Creature comforts come in the form of a wood-fired sauna and a communal cabin with a fireplace, but the biggest luxury is falling asleep to the sounds of the forest.

Islands Tree Houses

Located on an island (hence the name), these two-storey treehouses provide generous double beds, bed linen and towels. There’s also an outdoor kitchen and a summer shower. Guests can row and fish for some of the abundance of pike and bass in Havern lake. The water is clean, clear and fresh and the camping is comfy – and they’re building more accommodation, while still respecting the glorious Swedish nature.

Ice Hotel

Just 24 years ago, the first Ice Hotel was created out of the ice in Lapland. At the time, it was an international marvel. Each year, when the weather turns, it’s rebuilt from scratch, with the aim of showcasing the glories of Sweden’s far north in winter. Sculptures, bars, glasses, walls and rooms are all made from ice. Snuggle up in reindeer and other skins, grab a parka and glamp in a unique way while staying warm and cosy.

Aurora Safari Camp

Aurora Safari Camp floating-sauna – camp hidden behind

Owned by photographer Fredrik Broman, Aurora Safari Camp is located close to the Råne river in Lapland. There’s no artificial light to disturb the view of the Northern Lights, and the three comfy rooms can be arranged as doubles, twins or family rooms. A fire-driven heater keeps things cosy, as do the drinks offered in the lounge. Fine dining and a floating sauna are also available – this is glamping with all the fixings.
