Situated on the outskirts of Swedish Karesuando, the Davvi Arctic Star is a traditional and friendly hotel offering superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell. Here, you are well placed to explore Karesuando on foot, dropping in at Sweden’s most northerly church, paying a visit to the local museum and regularly crossing the Finnish-Swedish border.

Whilst simple and comfortable, the hotel has undergone a programme of modernisation in recent years and has all the essentials you need for a good stay including an open plan bar and dining area. There are 27 rooms in total, each being unpretentious and cosy. The Lagom rooms are inspired by the Swedish concept of Lagom: everything perfectly balanced in moderation - not too much, and not too little. The hotel also offers Fika rooms, which are slightly larger and named after the Swedish social institution of fika: a relaxing break, usually over coffee. 

Your Transun stay will be on a full-board basis. Meals are taken at the hotels' on-site restaurant and drinks can be purchased from the adjacent bar. (Please note that like many places in Sweden, the Davvi Arctic Star is a 'cashless' hotel and only accepts payments by debit or credit card).

Lagom Rooms (Small)

Sleeps 2

These value-for-money double rooms offer 13 square meters of space, with en suite facilities. Lagom rooms are inspired by the Swedish concept of 'lagom': everything in perfect balance - not too much, not too little. In short, these rooms, whilst compact, have everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

En-suite facilities Tea and coffee in room

Fika Rooms (Standard)

Sleeps 2-3

These twin and double rooms offer a generous 15.8 square metres of space, with en-suite facilities. Split over two floors, these rooms are named after a Swedish everyday institution: fika. Fika is a time to relax, usually with coffee and cake, and reflect. With the hotel located at the heart of True Lapland and surrounded by sprawling plains of Arctic tundra, we couldn't think of a better place to make time for fika.
