With a close connection to the earth, Greenstones still manages to bring the glamour in an eco-conscious yurt camp set in the middle of a lush, gorgeously-green island of Flatön. Greenstones offers a regular programme of Yoga, Tai Chi and other disciplines taught by both the international team and by visiting world-class teachers. This is a true retreat, with just the right touch of pampering—and a big dose of communing with nature.

Located on an island (hence the name), these two-story tree houses 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 Lake Havern. The water is so clean, clear, and fresh that some call it the best in the world. And yes, it’s comfy camping—and they’re building more, while still respecting the glorious Swedish nature.

Owned by photographer Fredrik Broman and billed as ‘wild and peaceful’, Aurora (the name serves as a hint as to what guests can enjoy while they’re there) is located close to the Råne River in Lapland. With no artificial light to disturb the Northern Lights’ view (or anything else) and the three-comfy Lavvu 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, so the Camp is basically glamping with all the fixings.
