Nicely renovated cabin, though bathroom a bit dated. Very well designed, lots of storage space and really useful 'wet' area to put boots on and leave wet ski stuff etc. I think the floor was heated in that part of the cabin. Fully adjustable and very effective heaters in the other, carpeted, parts. Drying cupboard in bathroom really good too.
Would have been good to have an oven. Just had a hob and microwave.
We were in Cabin 20, which I think was probably the best location of all the Kappas cabins - brilliant view and not too far from hotel.
Large balcony overlooking the frozen lake and Lapporten. We took the chairs out onto the path at the front of our cabin and Aurora-bathed!
Note that cabins don't have wi-fi, but it is available free in the hotel lobby and bar.
Food and drink
We rented a car and shopped at Kiruna. Mini mart at Bjorkliden is cute, but very small and right at bottom of hill. We bought wine at Heathrow and beer (up to 3.5%) at Kiruna supermarket. Otherwise, I think you need to buy booze at the Systembolaget.
Food and drink is expensive at the hotel, but very good. We ate a la carte on a couple of nights. Recommend the roasted reindeer fillet - delicious. Service very friendly.
I believe that you could order fresh bread from the hotel, for collection the following day, but I only discovered this just before we left.
Hotel seemed to be having a few problems with billing system when we were there. I'd already paid bill before I noticed mistake, but they were extremely apologetic and refunded over £100.
Skiiing isn't brilliant for a good skier - there are only surface lifts and only a few of them. The 2 green slopes are actually the nursery slope - very short, but with a pommel lift, and free.
We were very lucky to have 3 wonderful nights of Northern Lights, viewed from right outside our cabin. We tried to go on the Abisko Skystation trip but it was fully booked. Really glad we didn't go as it was very expensive and seemed to go ahead even if it was cloudy.
Bjorkliden is really not very commercialised. Nor is Kiruna Airport. Quite refreshing, but no opportunity to buy souvenirs! You really do feel as if you're away from it all. We took a drive to Narvik, in Norway, for some more great scenery on the way, and a few more shopping opportunities. (Note that we got permission from the hire company to take the car out of Sweden.)
