Set in a pristine white wilderness just 8km from Rovaniemi – the ‘official’ home town of Santa Claus – the hotel features luxury pod-style rooms and suites, raised on stilts to ensure views over the snow-clad forested terrain from the north facing wall-to-wall windows. Opened in December 2016, it provides a welcome touch of four-star Finnish quality with warm wooden interiors, cosy fur covered furnishings and amenities including small en-suite bathrooms and Espresso coffee machines. A number of interconnecting rooms, some with kitchenettes, are also available for families looking for extra space, while arctic glass houses complete with sauna offer a distinctive way to stay. A few minutes walk away, in the main hotel, guests can feast on local bistro-style fare in restaurant Rakas. Enjoy the potential for spectacular northern sky views from your suite, or get out and about with a full range of Arctic adventures from dog sledding and ski trekking through forested trails to watching the indigenous Sami reindeer herders at work.
Prices are per person and include flights and 3 nights accommodation with half board. Room upgrades available. Excludes activities and excursions.
