First of all I want to point out that I know there are no guarantees on weather conditions. So we didn't go to Abisco because it was a cloudy night and the chances of seeing some Aurora was better around the camp at about 10pm. They offered us and an elderly couple in their end

We stayed for 2 days in the camp, this was the best decision. Especially in the winter this is an amazing winter experience, we had a sauna on the frozen lake and we could also jump in the cold water inside the sauna. Besides this we did snowmobile touring with for a relatively

Very organized and fun for the hole family. You get to borrow clothes and all needed accessories to have a relatively warm ride. And you have more then enough time to visit both part of the icehotel including the sami camp.

Answer to the comment “Awful night” in the Lodge cabin, sent in to Tripadvisor. Camp Alta is a beautiful campsite situated in the nature close to the forest and to the Lake Alttajärvi, the Camp has different standards and sizes of cabins. The larger cabins have toilet, shower and kitchen inside, the smaller cabins have to use a service-building and 2 wood heated saunas, this summer we have started to take motorhomes and tent campers also. We can see that we need more showers and toilets, so we have begun building a new service-building with 3 extra showers (inc. Disabled Access), more cooking and washing facilities so as to offer a better service for the guests. It will be ready for this winter season. About the Lodge cabin: The Lodge cabin is a charming forest cabin with 3-beds, the cabin is built with old rounded timbers, the size of the cabin is around 12 m2 and has a wood heated stove, cooking plate, microwave ,boiler for water, refrigerator, TV , cutlery and crockery are present as the cabin is self-housekeeping. The guests who book the Lodge cabin have to walk about 30 meter to the toilet and the shower and about 20 meter to the small sauna and about 30 meter to the floating sauna on the lake. Of course mosquitos can easily get in any forest cabin if you leave the door or the windows open in the evening especially if it´s an evening with lots of mosquitos outside (this happens sometimes here in Lapland !). Regarding the bad smell in the cabin, you were correct, it was one of the 3 blankets in the cabin which was smelling sour, probably the previous guests have spilled out something on it (I´m really sorry that I have missed it when I have been checking and cleaning the cabin). Please note I was asking the new incoming guest about the problem you had with the mosquitos and I told them ensure that they close the door and the windows in the evening!!! Next morning I asked her how it was through the night and they said: There were Zero mosquitos in the cabin !!!. I should be really thankful if the guests who have some complaints come to me first so we can resolve any problems here directly, I could change the blanket and I could get something against mosquitos if required. As you can see from nearly all of our reviews, we, as a company go out of our way and always try our hardest to ensure our guests have a fantastic time and are comfortable at Camp Alta. Whilst it is our business, it is also our Passion and we get great satisfaction ensuring the guests are well looked after. I attach some pictures from the lodge cabin.

"Some of the cabins are located outside the main camp. If you are keen on using the sauna, I would recommend staying in the main camp."
"Cabin 3 is right on the lake front with an un- interrupted view!"
"Any of the cabins could be great. Depending how much people you are, there are cabins from 2 to 13 people."
"If you come with a bigger group, ask for the two cabins a little south of the camp. These have a private sauna and bbq along the lake!"
"Booked 2Bed hut (super cute) but as it was out of season we were upgraded to a bigger chalet, an unexpected luxury!"
$54 - $166 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
