For many, wooden cabins encapsulates family lapland holidays. With their inviting wooden interiors, log burning stoves, and serene woodland settings, they do complete the picture of a dreamy stay in Finland. The cabin’s are closely located to the hotel or reception buildings, but have the advantage of being disconnected and wrapped in the cover of darkness. This basically means, it only takes one foot out the front door to stare at the stars and possibly see the Aurora in the sky. For many of our guests coming for family northern lights holidays, these cabins are the ideal accommodation choice. It’s important to note, that walking between dinning areas and your cabins, you will need to dress in your Arctic suits. For young families, this might be a problem. Read the question/answers below – but do call our friendly staff. We are always happy to share our product passion.
Q: Who will take my bags – to/from the cabin for airport transfers?
A: The lodge or hotel reception will send someone to drop off and pick up your luggage, so you needn’t worry about carrying them yourselves through the deep snow in the cold of winter.
Q: Is there a shop to buy provisions nearby?
A: No, your staying in the remote parts of Lapland. Please be warned the nearest food shops are in Muonio. The bus costs approx.7 Euros per person each way. The shops are just across from the bus stop, and the bus returns after 2 hours. Mainly client’s take a taxi and also bring provision’s from home & airport.
Q: Are the cabin’s connected to the main hotel, restaurant, main lodge houses?
A: No cabins are located independently in the surrounding pristine woodland.
Q: What cabin sizes do you offer?
A: The smallest cabins are ideal for couples and families with small children. These cabins sleep 2 to 4 people in one area with a sleeping alcove for 2 people and a pull down sofa-bed for 2 more guests. Our next sized cabins are for 4-6 persons, and best for guests requiring more space and comfort. The layout is usually 1 x bedroom for two, and further space for 2-4 persons upstairs in the loft area [access by ladders or steep stairs]. The largest cabin’s are for 4-7 people, and offer a minimum of two bedrooms and loft space bedding. Please note that all our offered cabins are privately owned, so will vary in style but all will offer: lounge-kitchen with a sofa-bed, kitchenette, sauna, toilet, fireplace, clothes drying cupboard and TV.
Q: Are the paths to the cabins well lit?
A: No not especially, as we are conscious to keep fake lights to a minimum. We advise to bring head lamps and torches, to help guide your way at night time. The majority of our guests embrace the adventure, as the clear skies and the thousands of bright stars will make your journey at night so much more special. It’s not uncommon to have the Aurora Borealis above your heads.
Q: How far are the cabins to the main restaurant and reception areas?
A: Our cabin’s are between 5 – 20 minutes walk, and you will need to wear your full thermal clothing if venturing outside, so do consider this when making your hotel or cabin choice. This certainly might effect your decision, if elderly or have young children. However, for guests seeking the winter wonderland experience, the walk should not be viewed as a disadvantage, but another opportunity to breathe the freshest air and listen to pure silence.
