Welcome to Filipsborg, the Arctic Mansion, beautifully situated by the free Kalix river and close to the sea and the archipelago in the Gulf of Bothnia. Here you can enjoy experiences during all days and seasons of the year. The exciting low temperatures of winter, the fast-growing vegetation in the spring, the white nights during summer, and the wonderful colors of autumn.
We are a family-owned and run hotel that takes pride in giving our guests a personal welcome and best care. As a hotel manager, you meet Örjan Pekka, the former editor-in-chief who switched to tourist experiences. Victoria Sandin is the creator and teacher who has complete control of the design and style of the hotel rooms, the restaurant kitchen, and the well-tuned atmosphere in the hotel and mansion – environments that undergo constant change and refinement. You will meet three generations with a broad knowledge that together with committed and knowledgeable staff create unity.
Filipsborg mansion is in great condition and dates back from the 17th century. The oldest parts of today’s mansion were built over 200 years ago. The mansion has an exciting history which you can read more about here.
In addition to our rooms and campsites, we have activities of various kinds, depending on the season. In winter, snowmobile safaris that run along the river and in the archipelago. With our partners, we offer husky dogsled safaris and arctic icebreaker experiences. In the summer, we launch our passenger boats Filippa II and Filippa III, each of which can accommodate up to 12 passengers on a quiet river safari up to our wilderness camp or out into the archipelago. In the autumn when Kalix Löjrom (Kalix caviar) is caught, you get the experience of a roe fishing safari where you follow experienced fishermen who catch the coveted vendace that gives the exclusive Kalix caviar. We can also arrange hunting safaris on the mansions forest property, mainly hunting hares and forest birds.
