The accommodation comes in the form of elegant suites and cabins, all of which offer scenic views of the surrounding landscape during the day and the aurora at night. You can choose from the standard suite or for a more traditional Finnish experience you do have the option of a suite with a private in-room sauna. The cabins are perhaps the most exquisite of all the accommodation options as these come with a glass roof. This innovative approach means guests can gaze upon the glistening night sky while lying in bed waiting for the Aurora. All rooms come with free wi-fi, mini-fridge, flat-screen TV, and geothermal heating.

A sauna is an essential ingredient in any Finnish hospitality experience, so it’ll come as no surprise to hear that the Star Arctic Hotel is home to not one but two stylish saunas. Both are privately bookable, offer panoramic views, and are connected to a landscaped terrace with an outdoor hot tub.

For a good meal at Star Arctic, you don’t have to go too far, in fact, most guests choose to dine at the on-site restaurant, Kaunis. Kaunis restaurant is well known in the region for its modern spin on traditional Lappish dishes, fresh local produce, excellent bar, and beautiful views.

When you are in this unique part of the world it’s always best to take advantage of the local and seasonal. With the Star Arctic hotel, you can rent bikes, go snowmobiling, go on an authentic husky experience, reindeer sleigh riding, ice fishing, and aurora hunting.
