We had to go & see it for ourselves and SCHV was absolutely the ideal resort to stay at --with a small very helpful kitchenette and beautiful accommodation, Santa Claus just beside us on the Arctic Circle, all walking distance, Information Centre + beautiful forests behind us --the Huskies farm and the sledges...

Great new cabins right by the Arctic Circle. Lovely hosts, good breakfast, nice private sauna. It was amazing to wake up in the morning and see the fresh snow outside: winter in May!

The place is very very nice.... the cottages are "brand new", smell wood, cosy and warm... very clean... but the best ever is the sauna, how to describe the feeling of being in a sauna looking to the snowy trees. The staff are nice and natural and if they can help they do. If I can I will go back... More
