BACK TO SIMPLICITY  a 3-night package trip

Enjoy the tranquility, peacefulness and natural beauty of Dalsland.

This 3-night package trip allows you to unwind in a luxurious stress-free environment for 72 hours. Just enough time to lower your stress levels and feel that you are a part of nature. After two nights in nature at the Hermitage you paddle your canoe to Upperud where your fully equipped hotel room awaits with design and form that evokes the simplicity. The canoe journey to Upperud takes about 1,5 hours and you travel along the calm and beautiful Dalslands canal.


The Hermitage is situated high up on a rock overlooking the calm waters of Dalslands canal. Built with re-used doors and windows this sustainably built wooden off-grid cabin for two is a perfect place to unwind. We have created a calm oasis without electricity or running water. The perfect place for a Digital Detox. A comfortable double bed, Scandinavian furniture and cosy fireplace for chilly evenings. Natural insulation of wool and hemp creates a warm and healthy environment and the roof is alive with flowers and herbs. The very large windows bring you closer to nature with a beautiful view of the water. Your canoe awaits you for exploration trips on the calm waters. Or maybe a morning swim before breakfast?

At Upperud 9:9 you stay in the 100 year-old old silo with solid wooden walls constructed by thick horizontal planks. The five individual rooms are nestled into original exposed structures where you can still find a grain of wheat or rye in the gaps between the planks. French balconies let in the crisp Scandinavian light and stunning views over water in all directions. High ceilings allow for the upstairs lofts where you can rest on comfortable beds in natural materials. Stairs or ladders take you there…. Some rooms have stairs and others have ladders taking you upstairs.

All rooms have four beds, lofts with stairs or ladders, kitchen, WC/bathroom with shower and underfloor heating and free Wifi.


After a comfortable night, breakfast is served and your canoe awaits you for your journey back.
