Stayed over night with friends when travelling. The service in the hotel was generally good, positive and spontanious, with good feeling. As we arrived late, we made pre-order to the restaurant and this was appreciated by the staff. The reindeer burger was really good. Breakfast was also good. In general, the facilities and room were clean. Would recommend this place :)

Just back from a week’s trip to Hotel Harriniva. Hubby and me and our 14 year old daughter. Every part of this trip was a highlight. Seeing the Northern Lights twice from just outside the hotel next to the frozen river, husky trips, cross country skiing trails, ice fishing. Also visited Artic Sauna World at Hotel Jeris and the reindeers at Torassieppi. Everything was wonderful about the activities, all of the guides were super friendly and well informed. All of the staff at the hotel were so friendly and genuinely helpful and they made the whole trip very easy as everything thing was organised so well. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We were half board with a hot and cold buffet breakfast each morning and delicious hearty meal each evening. We had an early flight home and they provided us with a breakfast bag for the trip. Our accommodation was basic/standard but spacious and extremely comfortable. We were sad to leave and felt truly blessed to have visited this wonderful place.

Had the pleasure to go in our first husky safari with Harriniva, from their safari point in Kilpisjärvi, and it was simply an amazing experience. The whole thing happened at beginning of March, started at about 10:00 with getting the equipment needed, spending some time with the huskies and watching how the sledges were prepared, getting the instructions of how to control the sledge, and followed by the ride itself. And when the dogs start running, it was like something unreal was happening. A wonderful feeling in the heart of the nature, with snow all around. At the beginning the sky was clear and sun was warming up, after about 4 km we got in a snow storm, and at the end was again sun and pleasant atmosphere. The guys from Harriniva are extremely thoughtful and friendly, so everything was perfect. We could not choose better for our first husky safari, it.s a memory that will stay in our minds forever. And my wife, who wished for this experience for years, was extremely excited. Highly recommend them, our next safari with them will be snowmobiling and hopefully next year we’ll be able to go to the hotel in Muonio as well. Thank you Harriniva!

We came here as the first part of a two centre holiday and spent four nights. This was our very first "snowy" adventure and I am bound to say that it was a fantastic adventure. The hotel was very well appointed and the rooms (Widerness+suite ) was spacious and well equipped with a mezzanine for sleeping and the ground floor for comfortable seating or a sofa bed. The food was good and varied especially the fish dishes and drink reasonably priced for a Nordic country (though we didn't drink very much - too tired after the activities). The staff and guides were very friendly and knowledgeable and the excursion were excellent. We did things we had never done before like dog-sledding, snowmobiling and snow-shoeing. We also went to the sister hotel in Jeris to use the fantastic saunas and plunge into the ice cold lake afterwards (better than it sounds :) We saw the Lights but only briefly and through cloud so not a spectacular display (we did see them at the second venue). All in all a fabulous experience and thanks to the team at Harriniva for making it so. The only thing I would say is that there were no toiletries in the bathroom (luckily we bought our own) and the nature of the suite with the bedroom being on the mezzanine and the bathroom on the ground floor meant a precarious excursion to the loo in the middle of the night for those of a certain age ;) Having said that we would not hesitate in coming back agin to these beatiful winter surroundings in Finnish Lapland and the friendly laid-back Finns.

This is a very good hotel, which organises fantastic activities such as dog sledding and skidoo’s with great guides. The rooms and cabins are very nice, the food is average but the best thing about this place is the staff who are very special. The location is also very beautiful

Not long back from an amazing stay at Harriniva Hotel, Thanks to Minna for helping to organise our stay with you, we had a great time! Stayed in a cabin by the frozen river with fantastic views, cabin had underfloor heating and it’s own sauna, which was much needed to thaw out after activities in the snow and late nights chasing the Northern Lights. The Husky sled ride of 15km was a real buzz, absolutely loved it! The Snowmoble ride of 30km was unreal! But the highlight of course was seeing the Northern Lights on two nights, we were incredibly lucky as they of course are not guaranteed. The staff are great and very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, thanks again Minna! Airport transfers provided, also, Extreme outerwear, balaclavas, gloves and boots are provided by the hotel, remember layers and wool fabrics. Amazing memories made here!

We had a great holiday experience staying at this hotel. Rooms are cosy warm with an attached wet room. Food was brilliant and they catered for our gluten free friend very well. Wine and other alcohol was very reasonably priced and free tea, coffee and hot chocolate was available all day and evening. The equipment we were loaned for all our experiences was first class, very high quality and clean. You really don't need to bring anything.

We are 2 couples who came to Harriniva Wilderness Hotel for a week of Aurora Borealis hunting at the beginning of February 2020. The trip was booked and organized through Responsible Travel in the UK who are very very efficient.The package includes a number of nighttime activities all designed to maximize the chances of actually getting to see it in all its glory. We were not so lucky in that respect as the weather and solar activity did not play along but...everything else is delightful. From the pickup at the Kittila airport to the check in to the amazing food, friendly and knowledgeable staff, the equipment quality and organization, the well planned activities, it was all a joy. Coming back to food, it was way beyond our expectations given the remoteness of the area and time of year. The variety, quality, quantity and service were just fantastic, breakfast lunch and dinner. Imagine, grapes and Kiwi fruit in mid February in north Finland. The rooms are big cosy and warm and they have to be given the amount of winter gear one has to have when temperatures can drop to -25C. In summary, if you are looking for a winter adventure that includes day or night husky safaries, snowmobiling, crosscountry skiing, snowshoe walks, saunas by the river and great food this place is it. It is remote and the nearest town Muonio, is a 3km walk away and has nothing much going for it except for a great hot chocolate menu at the Swiss Cafe which has a small photo gallery showing nice photos of the Aurora and some Lappish goods. Unless you need supplies you can't get at the hotel there is no good reason to go.

Our room was lovely and comfortable and lovely and warm. Bathroom had a heated floor so nice and toasty. The food was very tasty we had breakfast and dinner included we were both very happy with everything we had. We also paid to have lunch as well. Hotel was lovely and clean. We also had included excursions Huskie safari and panorama snowmobile safari. Our guides were all very good. The Huskies are well looked after. We also booked to go to arctic sauna world at hotel jeris we really enjoyed it we did the evening and the saunas were lovely and quiet then I went for a dip in the ice lake. Very refreshing. We also booked snow shoe and auroa hunting. Lady Aurora was very happy to show her best light show it was amazing and our guide was excellent he was called jan and it was his first solo group tour. Also the warmth gear that is provided is excellent. This holiday was magical I have memories to treasure forever. Thank you hotel harriviana. Absolutely fantastic.
