From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
After a mighty makeover that spruced up the original 1882 building and added two new guest wings, a wood-and-glass chapel, and a serene spa, this mountain hotel is a welcome sign of change to the Scandinavian hinterlands, where ski lodges tend to be more basic than beautiful. The 20 rooms are perfectly pared down in scrubbed pine and rough slate, with the vibrant color of Missoni towels, embroidered cushions, and green ceramic teapots. Solid craftsmanship in the wooden buildings ensures nary an Arctic draft. Each morning in winter (which is most of the year), one of Fjällnäs's super-cool guides takes guests cross-country skiing, charting a route to avoid head-on winds and, come lunchtime, building a snow sofa for a wintry picnic. This is not luxury per se (guests pack their own lunches, for example), but it is authentic Swedish stuff. In the spa, guests can leap from the hot tub into a sawed through the frozen lake, and then thaw out in the spacious saunas. The hotel even has a pack of friendly huskies to power traditional wooden sleigh rides. Food is locally sourced—the salmon couldn't be fresher, and mushrooms and berries abound.—2009 Hot List

When to go: Avoid only mid-May through mid-June, when the snow melts into a muddy slush.

Which room to book: The doubles are all similar, but Svansjökläppen has views straight out to Lake Malmagen.
