Hotel and arctic activities

The Arctic Mansion

Unique arctic experiences, storytelling, top-class hospitality and hotel that make guests longing for longer stays – and longing for visiting us again.

We combine the Arctic experiences with hotel – all in one contact

When our guests arrive, they often long for longer stays. And after the stay, they are longing to return. We take that as the best grade for our hospitality, accommodation and our activities.

At Filipsborg we offer Arctic experiences combined with top-class hotel accommodation. You get to meet the free-roaming reindeer on the reindeer’s own terms, snowmobile safaris, dog sledding, photo safaris in the hunt for Aurora, also known as the northern lights, ice floating and ski trips or snowshoeing. The activities start at the mansion but can also include transfers when needed.

Filipsborg is beautifully situated by the free Kalix river and close to the sea and the archipelago of the Gulf of Bothnia. Here you can enjoy experiences during all days and seasons of the year. The exciting cold of winter, the bubbling vegetation of spring, the white nights of summer and the wonderful colors of autumn.

A hotel that gives you a warm welcome

Filipsborg is a family-owned and family-run hotel that takes pride in giving our guests a personal treatment and the best care. Our hotel rooms are of top class, inspired by the colours of the arctic with a warm touch. As a hotel manager, storyteller and professional guide, you will meet Örjan Pekka, the former editor-in-chief who switched careers to tourist experiences. Victoria Sandin is the creator and teacher who has complete control of the hotel rooms, the restaurant kitchen and the well-tuned furnishings in the hotel and mansion – environments that undergo constant change and refinement. You meet three generations with knowledge that together with committed and knowledgeable staff creates a whole.

We give you experienes, for example to meet the free ranging reindeers.

We give you experiences for life

In addition to offering fantastic accommodation in our hotel, we arrange activities that give you memories for life. In winter, nature trips on snowmobile along the river and in the archipelago. We offer safaris where you can meet our reindeers plus snowshoe walks, ice fishing and much more. Through partners, we offer husky safaris and icebreaker experiences. In summer, we launch our boat Filippa II on a quiet river safari to our wilderness camp or out in the archipelago. In the autumn when Kalix Caviar is caught, you get the experience of a caviar safari with knowledgeable fishermen who catch the desirable vendace that gives the exclusive Kalix caviar. We can also arrange hunting safaris on the manor’s own properties, mainly hare and forest bird.

Meetings IRL builds teams and creates development.

Conferences for development and learning

We have a total of four conference rooms plus many break out-rooms for group work. Our largest conference room has 55 seats while the smaller ones are dimensioned for groups of 2-30 people. The layout of the conference rooms can be adapted to different needs, for example school seating, board seating or herringbone shape. Wi-fi and ethernet connection are available for participants.

Filipsborg with the campsites.

Campsites next to the free-flowing Kalix river

Next to the mansion we have caravan plots for guests who arrive with motorhomes or caravans. They are beautifully situated next to the free-flowing Kalix River, from where the glitter of the water spreads. They are right next to the river, on grass or gravel – all with a view of the water. The electrical outlets deliver up to 16A/3600W. Wi-fi covers most of the area and of course there is access to shower and WC. During the summer of 2022, we will expand with space for dish washing/laundry and opportunities for toilet emptying.

"Welcoming committed hosts, genuine stewardship of the house's history, an entrepreneur with visions for the future. Lovely food, sauna and hot tub in beautiful surroundings. We will be back!"
