Cozy yurts for unforgettable nights
DISTRICT – Lautavaaranpolku 1, 97280 Rovaniemi
Relax under the stars – Looking for a unique opportunity to spend an unforgettable night in the wild Arctic region? Our yurts are special, cozy, and warm structures located 20 minutes from the center of Rovaniemi and situated right next to a large river or on top of a hill with a stunning view of the hill and forest.
In winter, it is possible to see auroras and stars through the roof dome. In summer, the dome lets in the midnight sun’s sunlight. The yurts are decorated with beautiful Scandinavian elements and are warm even when it’s cold outside. For the evening, it is also possible to book a Finnish wood-heated sauna.
A special hotel, a fantastic experience!
