Omg this was my trip of a lifetime. Something I’ve dreamed of since a small child and dream come true at 46yrs old! There was just me and my husband with another couple and no children but that didn’t deter us. The hotel is in the middle of a national park and is so unspoilt in its surroundings. Yes the hotel is a bit dated but it added to the experience. Food was a bit bland but nothing bad about it as it was edible. Drinks were a bit sparse and staff were busy all the time so the bar got a bit packed at times. Only downside was I expected a nice big fireplace but it’s tiny and they only put two small logs on it at a time. Hey ho, we are in LAPLAND.
The whole experience just was amazing. Can’t fault the hotel staff and elves. All very pleasant and someone always about.
Definitely a trip of a lifetime and would definitely return again. Maybe take the grandkids one day!! Dog sledding and snowmobiles were the best. Miss out on the reindeer ride as that was way overpriced and a big disappointment unfortunately.

Room tip: Avoid the reindeer sleigh trip. Snowmobile during the evening and dog sledding were amazing and worth every penny.

Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park is amazing and the nature is very unique. Visitors can go cross country skiing, snowboarding, free skiing, snowshoeing etc. The food in the restaurant is very good and traditional for Lapland. Pallaksen Pöllöt which is a local skiing school teachers fellowship arranges all kinds of activities during your stay. These experiences are one of a kind.

The hotel is very dated. I’ve visited there for nearly 30 years now and no changes or renovations have been done. It would be shame not to renovate the hotel because the location is so unique. The truth is that the price is way too high for that level. The history of Pallas should be valued and respected, now the management is only ruining it and letting the hotel grow moldy.

Wow. A lovely holiday, perfect in every way. TUI we’re excellent in the organisation and entertainment. Excellent for kids, very safe and great sledging. The hotel is what it is, we found it authentic and cosy. You don’t spend much time in rooms so this was perfect for us. Trips were well organised. The staff and elves made us so magical for the children. The big man himself was amazing! To top it off the lights made an appearance on our last night for the New Year ( and my birthday! ) don’t hesitate to book.

2nd time here as snowy wilderness lodge and it’s still as perfect as last time, the remoteness, the beauty, the charm, the staff, the food , the elves and the tui rep team all perfect !!
Even with covid the team did everything they could to make it safe, enjoyable but sticking to the restrictions

Don’t hesitate in coming here, you’ll never forget it or regret it

Room tip: Don’t come here if you want to be in walking distance of anything .. it’s literally the middle of nowhere
