Definitely a great stop over when you on the way travel to northern part of Finland. Welcome us by a blanket of snow during our visit and definitely a great place for photography and understand how gold mining was process.

The place is beautiful both in winter and summer. The restaurant has great food and the museum is also nice and informative. The whole place is little outdated, but that is exactley what gives it it's charm! I think it is a must to visit here once you end up in Lapland.

The cottage (shared bathroom) was wonderful. It was beautifully made and clean. I saw the reviews saying that it's the best place to see the Northern Lights and that's why we decided to stay here. We were really lucky - we saw the Northern Lights twice, and the first time was on our first night! The owners were very nice...

Our sons were so excited about the gold panning. We past the museum and followed the signs, but there was no one around, and there was so much snow... It was a lovely sunny day; everywhere covered with snow. We walked along the Northern Lights trekking path, saw some huts across and thought the quicker the better and chose the...

We were lucky enough to return for a second visit to Lapland. Choose to stay at here again, in a hut named "Upa". Small, yet comfortable with a fireplace. The owners and all staff members are amazing - friendly, down-to-earth people and very helpful. The food - superb! Excellent location to view the Northern Lights. An overall, great experience!

The staff was very helpful and nice, everyone and everything was on time, very warm and cozy though tiny cabins. Our goal was to see the northern lights and we did! Out of many attractions we took a dog sledge trip and winter mobile...

I have visited the Gold Village of Tankavaara only for a few hours, haven't stayed at the hotel or the cabins, so I can only rate the museum and the surroundings. The "village" itself is a rather short street with the hotel, restaurant and a few other buildings in the style of a gold mining village. Cabins are scattered all...

Worth a visit if only to learn about days gone by and the gold mining men and experiences they had...A world away from now....Fee to pay, little café and seating at the entrance, we were shown a film then allowed to wander round the exhibition before venturing into the grounds to explore, and see various aspects of the conditions they...
