On site has excellent slopes for practice skiing and sledging. A pan sledge is in outside cupboard for use. Stayed in farthest cabin {200 m} from main building but there is large changing area for cold weather clothing. Cabin has serviceable kitchen but you need to go to town for provisions. Radiators in room can be adjusted. The group meal...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a trip to Sweden. The camp is well positioned and run in a friendly and relaxed way. The cabins are fairly small but extremely clean, warm and comfortable. Dinner was excellent, up to haute cuisine standard. Breakfast too had a wide choice of fresh and local produce. I would definitely recommend...

11-12. Februar 2017 I was together with a groupe of 35 people at Camp Ripan. The cabins were greate and we had a beatiful sunday morning breakfast, where reindeermeat was a tasteful option. I have been there before and I recomend it for everybody.

They were perfectly clean and well equipped. Some of them can be a...

My Fiance and I stayed at Camp Ripon over Christmas and New Year 2015/2016. The reception that we received upon arrival at the hotel was appalling. There was a huge queue of people either waiting to check in, book excursions or check out, with only one person trying to deal with it all. Not an ideal start. We had arrived...

Dear Lis Y, We are sad to hear that we could not meet your expectations during your visit. Yes we are happy to have a lot of guests.

Dear JohnDW256, No, it is not dangerous to walk from railway station if you follow the marked signs and do not walk after E-10 road. The municipality offer free transfer bus from train station to bus station in city center. From there you should have had approximate 15 minutes´ walk to Camp Ripan. We can also offer you transfer for...
