In the centre of Rovaniemi, this contemporary hotel combines modern Finnish design with the cosiness and character of a Lappish winter retreat. What’s more, it’s ideally positioned for exploring all that this magical region of Lapland has to offer, from exciting Arctic adventures to meetings with Santa himself.
The hotel’s Arctic Boulevard Restaurant is a showcase for regional ingredients with beef from a nearby cattle ranch, game from the northern forests and fells, and fish fresh from Lapland’s lakes. It all comes together to create an inspiring menu of local dishes, which changes with the seasons. There’s even a celebrity-chef-inspired breakfast to help kick-start your day, Then, in the evenings at Lasiterassi, enjoy the buzz of a locals’ favourite as everything from champagne cocktails to locally brewed beers are served to the sounds of a resident DJ.
Rooms and suites, with names such as Magic, Polar and the Christmas Cabin, are cleverly themed around the heritage, landscapes and wildlife of the Arctic. Here, life-size polar bears gaze down from the walls and starlit headboards speak of nights under the northern sky.
With on-site facilities including a gym and sauna, and access to a nearby wellness lounge offering yoga classes, there’s much on offer in between excursions into the Arctic wilds. These include everything from Northern Lights tours to snowmobile adventures, while trips across the Arctic Circle and visits to Santa’s Lapland home are among other treasured highlights.
