Smens Gårdar

At Smens Gårdar we are all about bespoke group stays and celebrations. The concept was created from our passion for horses, the great outdoors, local organic food, beautiful old houses and the planning of tailored get togethers and celebrations.

Please explore our social media channels to get to know our three different offerings and get in touch to book your curated stay in Dalarna.

We are here to help you plan something special,

Smens Hästgård

Only an hour and a half from Stockholm Arlanda airport you find Smens Hästgård, a boutique Bed & Box offering set in the beautiful village of Fornby, in Sothern Dalarna.

A country house enjoyed by riders and non-riders alike, Smens Hästgård is a place to deepen your connection and knowledge of horses or to simply relax with friends and colleagues.

We run a range of workshops and events throughout the year with hand-picked horse specialists from a variety of disciplines.

Bring your own horse or enjoy our fantastic horses that roam the paddock paradise at Smens.

Hästgården offers catering and tailored planning of your event and activities.

Smens Gammelgård

Smens Gammelgård was added to our collection in 2021 and we are immensly grateful to have had the opportunity to purchase this property and to expand our business.

It is a dream for fellow cross country skiers, mountain bikers and hikers alike. Built in 1864, the 260 sq metres boast an impressive number of period features in an unspoilt Dala setting.

We cannot think of a better place to host Christmas, NewYears, Midsummer or Crayfish parties than Gammelgården.

Gammelgården is your ideal escape from the city, forage in the forest, read a book by the fire and connect with loved ones.

Smens Treestays

We believe staying in nature can be just as accessible and fuss free as staying at a hotel. That is why we do all the prep work, provide service during your stay and cook up meals from locally sourced ingredients with the lake, forest, streams or fields as the backdrop. 

Our tents are the worlds best tree tents (we have tried a few (!) so you don’t have to….) renowned for their comfort and design – presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and winner of various awards. Easy on the eye, comfortable and very kind to nature – leaving no trace on the ground or on the trees, just the way we like it.
