This is the holiday of a lifetime - words can't express how magical it is!
The hotel rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable - and to honest you only go there to sleep! I have a bad back but I found the bed...More

Response from SantaSafariManager, General Manager at Davvi Arctic LodgeResponded 2 December 2013
Thank you for your review of the Davvi Arctic Lodge. We are pleased that you found our rooms comfortable; we think that this is essential after a day full of snow activities. We feel that our remote location within the heart of True Lapland is...More
I stayed here whilst cycling across Europe. I had sun stroke and pretty bad sunburn.
The staff spoke great English, and most of them were English. The fed me, looked after me and treated my burns at no extra cost. They even drove me over...More
Took my boyfriend here for his 21st birthday as a package from Transun. We met the reps on the transfer to the hotel, they were really helpful and answered any questions we had. They looked after us throughout the holiday, during the activities and helped...More
Am I the only Finnish to rate the hotel? :) We stayed in the hotel on our way to Kilpisjärvi. On their Finnish website was (is?) the price 75e for a double including breakfast. We walked into the reception and the guy (foreign, no Finnish...More
I am writing this review having stayed at the Davvi Arctic Lodge in April 2013. The transfer worked well and driving past the fields of laden snow certainly helped "set the scene". The lodge itself is right on the border with Sweden. I was in...More

I went 2 years ago. Hotel is warm and clean but is basic (UK 2 star in my opinion). I don't think it's standard is unusual for northern Finland that seems to be rustic compared to what us Brits expect when we have paid so much, but as I lowered my expectations, we really enjoyed ourselves. Communal foyer, lounge and dining room were festively decorated. We took travel kettle and coffee etc sachets plus DVD players, card games and colouring etc to occupy children if in bedroom for any time (as there is no radio / TV unless go to communal lounge). Get to dining room early for meals otherwise be prepared to queue. We took snacks for bedroom but there is very well equipped mini mart, cafe and large gift shop a few mins walk from hotel. Sells gloves etc too. Can hire chairs on skis which were novel for our children to ride on when we did 20 min walk into Sweden. There is a church there on a hill which was great fun racing down with the chair- skis and did Carol concerts too. Husky ride was brief but enjoyable with plenty of photo opportunities afterwards. The reindeer ride is rustic with traditional furskin covered low sleigh not a fancy large red sleigh we associate with reindeers but more authentic. Our children enjoyed it and so we were happy. Take snoods or scarf and gel hand warmers if you get easily cold. Was -26 one day we were there! Enjoy.
