Our Hunting Lodge
The Medstugan hunting lodge was built by Carl Fredrik Liljevalch in 1896-97, and was drawn by the architect Agi Lindegren; it is located at the heart of our 16,500 hectares and is the starting point for our hunts. Over the years, Medstugan has attracted both royalty and foreign big game hunters and there is a real sense of hunting tradition in Medstugan’s walls – hunters have stayed here for over a century and a trophy cabinet bears witness to how hunting was conducted in the early 1900s. In the morning, after breakfast, we depart from this from incredible piece of history either on foot or by helicopter.
Breakfast and dinner are eaten in one of our two dining rooms. The day’s hunting stories are best told around the fire in the drawing room, while the lodge’s sauna is wonderful for relaxing in after an exciting and demanding hunt.
To make the most of the day, we usually eat lunch out on the hunt, or in one our hunting cabins. As we believe that food and drink are an important part of the overall experience, so they are presented in more detail below “a culinary experience”.
We have two hunting cabins on our land in addition to Medstugan. These are more basic but remain welcoming, with wood-burners and outside toilets. Meals are delivered daily, so you can enjoy high-class food that our chef prepared at the lodge. It is possible to hunt grouse right up to the eaves of the cabins – and you won’t find accommodation that’s closer to nature or the hunt!
It takes less than 90 minutes to drive to Medstugan from Östersund airport and less than two hours from Trondheim airport.
