Cosy, pine-clad accommodation on the shores of Finland's Lake Äkäslompolo

» Small & Intimate Hotel

» Accommodation: Superior A higher standard of accommodation with a better range and quality of facilities, often in a good location (typically 4 stars)

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

It’s fair to say that many hotels in Finnish Lapland hit the high notes when it comes to location. And this ever-so-cosy offering on the pretty shores of Lake Äkäslompolo is no exception.

Eat

Eating here is a big deal, and a cosy one. At the start of each evening, there’s a clear choice between the main restaurant and the Humina Pub, both located in the main building. At the fomer, blonde-wood walls set the scene for delicious buffets and a la carte options inspired by the food of Finland, from the Lappish delicacies of the far north to the seafood found throughout the coastal regions. The latter, meanwhile, is all about tasty light bites washed with a seemingly endless selection of beers, wines and spirits. And, for those that start with the restaurant, there’s always the opportunity to head over to the pub as the night wears on.

Sleep

The rooms and holiday lodges offer everything you’d want from a Lapland hotel, their pine-clad walls and log-burners creating a delightfully warm and relaxing space to end days of fun-filled wilderness adventure. All set in individual log houses, some in the woods, some scattered along the lake shore, each room’s rustic aesthetic is the perfect complement to the nature outside.

Do

As you’d expect, a stay here affords the chance to enjoy all manner of wintry escapades, with action-packed snowmobile adventures and thrilling husky safaris stealing the headlines. Beyond these two must-do activities, guests can choose from snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and reindeer farm visits. And, this being the Arctic, there’s every chance that you’ll see the Northern Lights dancing their merry dance in the inky black skies. Meanwhile, back at base, there’s a traditional Lappish sauna, of course, along with an Arctic spa complete with outdoor Jacuzzi for resting aching limbs.
