For adults only, this luxuriously romantic lodge is a stunning designer getaway in the wild landscapes of Finnish Lapland. Located at the confluence of two rivers, right on the Arctic Circle and 60 kilometres from the city of Rovaniemi, its collection of cosy rooms provide the perfect base for exploring the surrounding forests on some of Finland’s most exciting winter adventures.
Mixing the freshest local ingredients with a whole host of international influences, Beana Laponia’s daily-changing menus are designed with more than just fuel in mind. Taking inspiration from the bounty of Finland’s Arctic wilderness, they’re something of a showcase for modern, Scandinavian cookery. Drinks too, served in the welcoming Lobby Bar, are thoughtfully put together and skilfully presented, the perfect aperitif to evenings of indulgent culinary exploration. And, if you feel like experiencing something of the unique, it’s possible to arrange an evening visit to the nearby Arctic Snowhotel for a guided tour and dinner in its ornately carved Ice Restaurant. Speak to our specialists to book your table.
With just 11 individually designed rooms overlooking the snow-laden surroundings, a stay at Beana Laponia certainly feels exclusive. And inside, faux-fur throws and exposed wood beams contrast perfectly with such modern conveniences as flat-screen TVs and minibars. For the ultimate in romantic indulgence, book the Laponia Junior Suite to enjoy use of a private sauna.
Beana is the sámi word for dog, and guests at the lodge will see a 26-year-long connection with man’s best friend brought to life with one of Finnish Lapland’s finest husky experiences. Kennels are just a few minutes from the hotel, and head musher Aki Holck is regarded as one of Finland’s leading husky-racing exponents. To make the most of your stay, consider booking both the Beana Trail and Laponia Day for two days of adventure in the company of the ever-so-friendly pups. Further fun can be found on snowshoe hikes, snowmobile excursions and reindeer farm visits while in winter, the Northern Lights are regularly seen in the starry skies overhead.
