Fjällnäs (www.fjallnas.se; from £223) is Sweden’s oldest mountain hotel – and at this silent, slightly eerie time of year, the few spectral hours of light are best enjoyed on the two‑and-a-half-hour hike (or 20-minute snow-scooter ride) from the main lodge to its Lake Bolagen cabin, located beside a mountain lake. Newly done up, this log cabin was a gift from the Sami people more than 80 years ago. It now has eight beds, a sauna and a wood stove – and comes with snowmobile-delivered meals and guides for wild skiing.
