Charming and rustic log cabin hotel in Western Lapland, with the one of the best Santa experiences and husky farm onsite

» Traditional Hotel

» Accommodation: Standard A good standard of clean and comfortable accommodation with a reasonable range of facilities (typically 3 stars)

» Price guide: typically up to £200 per room per night

Perched on the banks of the Muonio River, this simple yet cosy wilderness hotel comprises 64 comfortable rooms, some with private saunas, whose wood-cabin aesthetic is pure Scandinavia. It's also a convenient base for exploring the very best of the region's wild remotes, with activities ranging from husky sledding to Northern Lights safaris, and, in summer, hikes under the midnight sun.

Sleep

The rooms at Harriniva are reassuringly rustic, their cosy pine-clad interiors completely in tune with the forested Lappish surroundings.  And, while all are en suite, some, including the spacious apartment rooms, come with a TV, kitchenette and even a private sauna, perfect for families.

Eat

Ok, so it's not fine dining, but Hotel Harriniva’s cosy restaurant does serve a mixture of hearty, home-cooked and locally inspired dishes along with a range of international favourites. It's simple but effective fuel for a holiday packed full of activity and adventure.

Do

Santa aside, a winter holiday to Finnish Lapland is, in many ways, about seeing the Northern Lights. And, at Harriniva, staff offer a wakeup service to alert guests as soon as the show begins. In daylight hours, there's plenty of frosty fun to be had, with husky safaris, skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling among a full spread of adventurous options. Back at base, there are saunas and hot tubs to relax in after all the fun.
