At home with the Karkeas

We are a cheerful and sociable family with a deep love for food. Anders hails from Torne Valley, Sweden, while Hanna comes from Finnish Lapland. Our paths crossed around 13 years ago at a ski center in Finland, and after much exploration, we found our home in Kiruna.

Our family includes August, a vibrant 9-year-old who adores music, gymnastics, and Nintendo, as well our little moose-hunting companion, Charlie. Anders wears the hats of a wilderness guide, musician and hunter, with a passion for the Northern lights and Blues music. Hanna on the other hand, is a sommelier and travel agent, reveling in the pleasures of good food and wine. In her downtime, she enjoys trail running and diving into the pages of a good book.

Nestled in a century-old house, we’d be delighted to welcome you for a cozy dinner, sharing a slice of our world, and hopefully making some new friends along the way!
