It was really good overall. The personnel was very welcoming.They give a Little gift to my son and a Little bag with shampoo and kindar of stuff to us. Breakfast was good. The room was comfortable and instagrammable. It is close to the Santa Claus village. There were only two concerns for me. First, the room was cool at night. Our 4-year-old son was with us so it was something important for us. They provided a heater upon our request, which was nice, it was still cool. Second, for the complimentary shuttle service you have to make a reservation 7days in advance. Although I had known about that I forgot and informed then 5 days before our trip. It is like a trap. I had to pay one way. Luckily for our return trip it was complimentary since there were 7 days before our departure. It should be free or not. It should not be the customers’ responsibility to arrange it. I can suggest a few more things. Some complimentary hot drinks at the reception would be great. The weather is cold and I know most hotels in the area offer this. Other than this there should be a tour desk at the hotel. They simply direct you to the village for more information.

Nice experience igloos but food need improvement
Overall nice experience, especially if it’s your first time worth a try to stay in the igloos. The igloos are small considering the price you pay and beds are not comfortable. Breakfast needs improvement, the food not impressive except for the freshly baked bread...adding an option of cooking eggs your way would be good. Close to santa’s village which is good. At night they light a fire place near reception which is lovely. They have aurora alarm option to wake u up if northern lights are showing which is cool! So it’s worth a try if it’s your first visit!

Nordic Adventure
Everything about our stay was amazing. The people at the desk were so helpful and pleasant. They went out of their way to help us at every turn. The room was gorgeous with lots of homey touches and the beds were very comfortable. The aurora alert worked perfectly and we were able to see the Northern Lights because of it. Within walking distance of Santa’s Village. Overall just a perfect stay.
