Kronlund Kursgård

Experience the deep north.

About us

We are Nick Kleinherenbrink and Anna-Louise Ström. A Dutch guy and a Swedish woman who met in Germany in 2013. After 7 years in the Netherlands we longed for the north, the nature and the seasons. So we combined forces with Nicks parents and bought Kronlund kursgård (Kronlund courseyard) in 2020. Just as the Covid pandemic hit. We just made it over the Danish border, with all of our belongings packed up in to one car and one truck, right before it closed. We were lucky to make it. While the world shut down, we started a long journey to rebuild and re-establish Kronlund Kursgård to its former glory and beyond.

About Kronlund kursgård

The 1st of November 1905 is an important date in the history of Kronlund kursgård. That is when the, then called, Hällnäs forest school opened up for the first time. It was the first school of its kind in the north of Sweden. 58 men applied the first year, most of them from Västerbotten or Norrbotten, most of them with a background in forest work. Which proved the necessity of the school at the time. Out of these 58 people, 14 were chosen for the first year.


Since 2020 we have been documenting our journey on Instagram. Follow us for information, updates and pictures.
