Thank you for your review, it is disappointing to read your review. Our traditional timber built cabins located in the hotel grounds are simple, comfortable cabins; we provide sofa beds for our guests when the cabins sleep a family of four. The remote wilderness location of the hotel with walking trails and toboggan slopes provide outdoor activities for our guests... More

Well, I totally agree with Nichola M who posted a review reciently, we too have just returned from 4 days in Lapland - as my daughter is just over 9 years old this was to be a trip of a lifetime to see the "Real Santa" the flight over was the least christmassy ever apart from very loud christmas songs...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, feedback is important to us and it is disappointing to read your comments. During the winter months Finland receives only 4 hours of ‘greylight’ this we believe adds to the magical atmosphere of the hotel, deep within the Arctic Circle. While our hotel is relatively simple and cosy, our rooms... More

We would dearly have loved to be writing a review of the Davvi Arctic Lodge and in particular the Fell House that we have had booked with Tansun for around 5 months now and been able to give it our 5 star rating for our upcoming departure on the 23rd for 4 nights Santa experience. But this afternoon, when looking... More

We have just returned from a four night visit. After reading previous reviews I was worried. I have to say either Transun and Davvi have upped their game or the reviews were just wrong. Reps were great, Ella was lovely. Hotel, yes it is very basic and oh so very hot (take t shirts for around the hotel), but it... More

Just got back from having a fabulous time. Everything about the holiday was amazing, from the huskies that you control, the snow mobiles that you drive, looking for Santa in the enchanted forest. The sights in the area around the Hotel was truly breathtaking, the church we visited for a Carol Service on the Sunday, the sledging, the snowball fights,... More

We stayed at The Davvi Lodge from 21/11/14-24/11/14. There were 4 adults and 2 children under 5. We stayed in a fell-house which was a walk away from the hotel down a snowy candle lit path. It was clean and warm and the beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water and clean towels. We had a fuse... More
