The hospitality industry is steadily becoming an indispensable part of our life, while we keep witnessing its various interactions with allied and seemingly unrelated spheres. This tendency has been recently spotted in Sweden, where Volvo Cars, a premium car maker, and Tablet Hotels, a designer hotel booking service, have launched a joint project Get Away Lodge inviting travellers to have some rest and summon up fresh energy in a secluded hotel in the Northern Sweden.
The key concept of the new project developed by Volvo and Tablet Hotels is to provide travellers with an opportunity to book a recently renovated cottage not far from the Swedish winter resort Åre in Jämtland province and additionally rent a brand new Volvo V90 Cross Country. While enjoying your seclusion in tranquil snowy mountains of the Northern Sweden, you will be invited by Volvo to assess a new model in its home element, i.e. winter roads and complicated weather conditions.
The cottage has been designed in Scandinavian style and welcomes guests with a bedroom and fireplace-equipped living room.
At the lodge guests can find a fully appointed kitchen with a panoramic view of the Åreskutan mountain peak.
The guests can also make themselves comfortable in a dining room and a study.
There is a special relaxation zone with yoga mats and candles.
A separate storage room for winter sports equipment, such as skis, warm clothing and footwear is also available.
The luxury cabin retreat is nestled in mountains and dense woods.
The guests of Get Away Lodge can enjoy round-the-clock access to the concierge service for ordering a meal or planning entertainment activities. For example, there is famous Fäviken Magasinet restaurant nearby, awarded with two Michelin stars, and the one taking you there is the very Volvo V90 Cross Country with all-wheel drive and high ground clearance.
The booking offer of Get Away Lodge will be available till March, 2017 on the Tablet Hotels website.
Let us also not forget that Volvo Cars is celebrating 90 years since the first vehicle launch, which promises even more surprises from the Scandinavian brand.

There is no wonder that Dresden is not only one of the largest cultural centres in Germany, but also the industrial city. The proof of this fact is the transparent factory of Volkswagen which was opened in 2001.
