A de-stress mini-break - the '72 Hour Cabins'

A de-stress mini-break - the '72 Hour Cabins'

Sweden is renowned for the high quality of life of its citizens - from world-class healthcare, to universal free education and a liberal society. This interesting new initiative combines beautiful Scandinavian design with an innovative approach to taking a mini-break! Located in the Swedish region of Dalsland, these beautiful glass and wood cabins provide a peaceful place to stay for guests, far removed from the stresses of modern life. Guests are encouraged to stay for 72 hours - free from modern technology, and surrounded by the beautiful Swedish wilderness. A study carried out earlier this year on five guests from around the world showed that each showed lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress levels - and each showed greater creative capacity too.

Each cabin is set in a slightly different position, offering views of unspoilt woodland and pristine lakes. Guests wake to the natural dawn chorus and clear light, away from the daily grind of modern urban living. 

Swedes have a very close bond with nature, and these cabins are no different. Guests will experience the sights, sounds and smells of the pristine Swedish countryside, and get a feeling of being 'at one' with nature.

Dalsland, where these cabins are located, is around 2 hours north of Gothenburg. It is sometimes known as 'Sweden in miniature' as it has examples of the thick pine forests, open plains and plentiful lakes that are found throughout the country. No other area of Sweden has as many lakes and waterways as Dalsland - a perfect place for a true Scandinavian wilderness escape.
