We wanted to see the northern lights and research suggested that the best chance would be had around the Abisko area in Sweden. Most packages to the Northern Lights areas are fairly expensive. No getting away from it. But without the experience to organise flight, hotel and activities ourselves as it was our first time to Sweden, we wanted to...

We stayed in February 2017 booked through Weekend a la carte. The lodge is small and tastefully furnished and very relaxing. Tea/coffee and biscuits are always on hand and a great area to relax. All our activities were intimate with a maximum of 8 people. The snowmobiles were straight from the door and others(huskies, Ice hotel) were short drive in...

What a lovely hotel and staff! The staff were so friendly and when I broke my wrist they even took me to the hospital and collected me when I'd been sorted out which was four hours later. We were late for dinner because of that and they still cooked us a meal - not just reheating something but flashed up...

Super cozy and friendly hotel, just 7 bedrooms, small but very cute, just outside Kiruna. Best place to see Northern Lights, just a step outside! And be sure to try the hot tube, amazing experience! Good breakfast and great dinner, just be sure you book in advance. Mikko is such a character and he will be there for you anytime.

Arrived at the airport and were met straight away. We really weren't sure what to expect but everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble..they even made sure our friend had lots of gluten free bread for breakfast. We went in the rooftop hot tub and then enjoyed the sauna followed by a plunge in the snow!! Ski...

It's true: Sweden is not cheap!! But....it's a trip to an extreme place not only for climate reasons so...how do you think it can be cheap? Just think about the heating costs!!! Only 20 years ago a trip like this was intended as a polar expedition!! if you book all just a little in advance, you can have affordable prices...

Stayed here for our honeymoon via our travel agent, Weekend A La Cart. Had a wonderful stay, room cosy and bed comfortable. Food exceptional. Moose, reindeer and fish as well as a wonderful buffet breakfast. There's a communal area with sofa and soft chairs and an amazing log burner which I happily slept in front after a day out.

This is our second experience travelling to the north to experience the northern lights and I must say the this trip was far superior to the previous one. One slight hiccup was that we were not met at the airport but that was soon overcome as a quick phone call to the lodge resulted in a taxi appearing a few...

This time for a summer visit. Without any doubt my favorite resort up in this area. Super clean, friendly and relaxing. If you need something, they will help you with it here. Tomorrow we will go up north to Abisko, plenty of stuff to see and do here even if you're not into fishing and hunting.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Máttaráhkká Northern Lights Lodge is like a home away from home - but with that little extra. We have 7 double rooms and offer you a nice stay in a relaxing enviroment with the sounds of nature around you. From our Lodge you have an amazing view over the night sky and it is a perfect place for the Northern Lights. Step into our heated outdoor jacuzzi, sit outside in front of our open fireplace or wander outside the Lodge and lie down on a warming reindeer skin with a hot cup of cocoa or lingonberry drink and watch the stars and lights above you. The lodge is only 5 minutes outside Kiruna and 15 minutes from the Airport. We have snowmobiles just outside the Lodge, you can walk with snowshoes or try out our cross country skis or just lean back and relax. Welcome! ... more   less
