Family getaway to White Mountain LodgeA cozy getaway. A quiet tranquil retreat. That's what this place is. A break from the everyday noise. The small village of Kalvträsk, located in the southwestern part of Skellefteå municipality, is like another world, and the Youngman family and the Eriksson-Havh family have longed for that world for several weeks.
Sleep in the old church townShe unlocked our little faluröda church cottage. Inside, time stood still; everything was so beautiful. In the window that stood open fluttered a sheer curtain. My shoulders immediately lowered, my heart rate went down. Here we could just.. be.
When you walk through the old church town full of cottages, you can almost see the community they create, the hope of the countryside and our beautiful north.
