"We use locally sourced ingredients from the untouched Arctic nature. The Reindeer and Elk meat comes from Karesuvanto, the Arctic Char from Lapland's clear mountain lakes, Salmon comes from the Arctic Ocean and our Specialty, the Willow Grouse, has grown in Enontekiö, in the wilderness of Pöyrisjärvi. The berries and Mushrooms used in the portions have been hand picked from the Arctic wilderness."

Indulgence for all the senses

Like the food, both exterior and interior designs are inspired by local tradition. The shape of the glass structures is inspired by Lapland’s classic “kota” huts, designed and used by the indigenous Sámi people. The large glass windows of Glass Restaurant provide an unrestricted view of the nature of Lapland. The season-coloured landscape and the northern starry sky create a magical atmosphere in the space.

The Glass Restaurant features music by artists and small domestic producers from the North Calotte region. In addition to Sámi artists, Rovaniemi-based jazz tones and Finnish folk music are included. The playlists have been compiled by pianist Anna Laakso, who lives in Rovaniemi.

The apartments here are simply stunning. Simple yet very sophisticated in style, with floor to ceiling windows to soak up this magical location. The staff are very friendly and efficient. We had the half board option. There was everything you could possibly want at breakfast, and dinner was top notch too. We cannot wait to go back to do it all over again. The snowmobile safari is a must. Georgios safely guided us through everything we needed to know. The highlight of our trip though, was our husky experience. (Bearhill Husky). Breathtaking, awe inspiring, (pinch yourself) to believe that you're really travelling through this magical landscape, being pulled along by these magnificent, strong, enthusiastic and ridiculously friendly huskies. Put this trip on your bucket list!

Huoneistot ovat upeita ja tyylikkäitä. Kaikki yksityiskohdat on hienosti mietitty. Lasikatto, joka jatkuu katosta lattiaan luo upean vaikutelman kuin olisi osa luontoa. Ikkunat ovat lämmitettäviä, joten jos lunta sataa ja haluaa näkymän auki on se mahdollista kun laittaa ikkunoiden lämmityksen päälle. Maisema on kuin taulu, joka muuttuu sään ja vuorokaudenajan mukaan. Kokonaisuuden kruunaa terassilla oleva suojaisa poreamme. Henkilökunta on ystävällistä ja palvelualtista. Monipuolinen ja herkullinen aamiainen. Kaikenpuolin upea kokemus! Suosittelen!

Amazing resort with a wonderful design and a full glass outdoor view from the ground to the sky at night. They have indoor sauna and a centrally heated unit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have an outdoor hot tub which stays at 40 degrees. A wonderful experience to soak in the hot tub in - 15 degrees temperature. It is walking distance to santa claus village where you can do many types of activities. Definitely worth the money for the experience and you must book very early to secure a slot in this resort.
