The most beautiful place on earth!



I have fallen in love with this wonderful country, so full of life, love and with equally wild landscape. I am burning with desire to share this incredible and undiscovered experience with you. I want to introduce you to the country and its people. Northern Sweden and Lapland is an amazing landscape with a beautiful wildlife and a rich Swedish and Sami culture.


Hi, I'm Martine Westerlund. When I married Swedish freelance journalist Lars Westerlund  in 2010, I moved to his home village, Kusfors, in northern Sweden, where his family roots are fourth generation.


I had to flee my beloved homeland Zimbabwe because of the political situation, with only GBP £4 in my pocket and a suitcase in my hand.


I was born in Zambia and raised in Zimbabwe.I grew up with a younger brother who ate, slept and breathed fishing almost before he could walk ,so I understand the heart and passion of a true fisherman.


A while back, I bought a villa so that I could share the beauty of this paradise with YOU. We have something for everyone.

As there were no statistics for the lake in our area, I invited in professional pike fishermen in 2013 to test these virgin pike waters. I was thrilled with the results and so were the guys, they landed big fish every day. They were thrilled not only with the fishing but also with the wide-open unspoilt space and silence and vowed to return every season.

When I met my wife Martine and she moved to Sweden, seeing my homeland through her eyes was as if I was seeing it for the first time. I had become jaded to the beauty that surrounds me. I have a fresh appreciation of how much we have to offer as a destination. Martine and I look forward to sharing this with you and welcoming you.
