Andreas and I took a little mini vacation to Saxnäs. We stayed with friends who have a house there and rent out their guest house. It's a beautiful little town nestled in between lakes and mountains about a four hour drive from Umeå. A popular place to go hiking, snowmobiling, berry and mushroom picking, and more.
We had a great time enjoying good company and meeting new people, playing kubb, taking long hikes, going in the hot tub, playing with Nisse (their super sweet rottweiler) and driving around the area seeing the beautiful nature.
If you're ever in the area, contact Miia and Christer for a vacation rental! Below is the link to their website.
