Good people, charges on higher side but worth the service. They also have a place called camp aurora next to river in the wild. Worth a night stay

No better place for an above the arctic circle/ice hotel/northern lights/Lapland holiday. Visited in January, when it was very cold, just like it should be in the Arctic.
