Overview

The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a charming, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando. The beautiful restaurant, its circular design inspired by the shape of a Sami reindeer corral, is the hotel’s centrepiece and from here you can enjoy panoramic views over the snow-covered hillside to Swedish Lapland located just across the border.

Deep in the heart of True Lapland, and located on the offical Northern Lights route, Karesuando offers once-in-life-time Arctic experiences without the crowds. For those looking to stay in the Swedish side of the village we also offer Northern Light stays at the Arctic Star hotel.

What you said

What a wonderful experience! The cabin was warm and cosy, very clean and spacious. The main hotel was a short walk away but also very welcoming. The staff were so kind, friendly and helpful at all times... Would I stay at the Davvi? Yes, no hesitation.

Why we chose it

Enjoying a hot chocolate by the hotel's open fire is our favourite way to relax after a day in the snow.

During the festive period this hotel is ideal for families looking to enjoy a family holiday to Lapland however, from January onwards it becomes a haven for Aurora hunter's due to its unrivalled location.
