Sweden's oldest mountain hotel, the 1,700-acre Fjällnäs Reserve, was built in 1882 as a retreat for Swedish royalty to experience the drama of what Fjällnäs calls "the eight seasons."

The hotel is surrounded by a stark landscape of birch forests and barren mountain peaks; rooms feature slate and scrubbed pine surfaces and are simply outfitted in white linens, sheepskin pillows and throws, and Josef Frank fabrics. Visit Fjällnäs Reserve for more information.
