In the far north of Finnish Lapland, the small and quiet village of Hetta is nestled away amidst miles of forested snowscapes set alongside dramatic Lake Ounasjärvi. The vast wilderness expanses of this region have long been traversed by nomadic Sámi tribes, the indigenous local people; and many Sámi families are still resident among the local community. The village has an interesting museum that depicts the time-honoured Sámi way of life and a beautiful church, with a distinctive, slender belltower. We offer a range of accommodation options in Hetta to suit your requirements.
A quaint little Lappish village perched on the banks of a frozen river, deep inside the Arctic Circle, Karesuando provides a tranquil, picturesque and unspoiled backdrop for your Arctic activities. The main village sits on the Swedish side of the river Muonio, home to the Arctic Star hotel whilst the warm and welcoming Davvi Arctic Lodge is situated on a fellside just into Finland. The village has an attractive church - the most northerly in Sweden - as well as a handful of local shops and amenities.
