The cottages are idyllically located on an island in Lake Runn. Runn is one of Sweden’s best lakes for catching pike, perch, and zander. The lake covers an area of 65.5 sq km with a maximum depth of 27 m and contains 80 islands. The cottages are located right by the water and you are practically at the dock when you step out the door. We provide well-equipped boats with various options for your fishing experience.


You can communicate with us in English and Swedish.


Our cottages are generally open from the end of April until mid-October. Late spring and early fall are the best seasons for real fishing enthusiasts who want to maximize their chances of catching pike. Summer is perfect for enjoyable family fishing for perch, pike, and zander.

Other activities

Our cottages are located 10 km from Falun with its almost 60,000 inhabitants. A city that is largely classified as a World Heritage Site with many cultural treasures and several good restaurants. If you want to do other activities besides fishing on Runn one day, it is ideal for paddling and visiting some of the lake's many uninhabited islands. Canoes are available for rent.

Additional information



The main species to fish for in Runn are pike, zander, and perch. In recent years, Runn has become a very good lake for zander fishing, but it is most famous for its large pike. It is not uncommon for pike over 120 cm to be caught in the lake.


A simpler motorboat (Ryds 460) is included in the basic package. More advanced motorboats can be arranged: 1. Tracker V16 with a 40 hp motor, electric motor with GPS, sonar, casting deck, etc. 2. Large aluminum boat with a 60 hp motor and downriggers.

Fishing equipment

Fishing is best done from one of our boats. Here you have access to sonar to see the depths and where the fish are, but it is also possible to fish from one of the many uninhabited islands if you want to stretch your legs for a while.
