Travelled here with Santa Claus trips for a Lapland Christmas experience. The hotel itself is simple but comfortable. Only 10 minutes or so from the airport - and in the middle of a very small town. Family rooms are great - sleep 4, two downstairs and then a wooden staircase

Hei! In the evenings you can and should have some snowfun outside the hotel, especially as you do not have so much time here. You can book some Northern Lights or other evening activities through Transun or direct from the local companies (you can see Tosilappi's website). After spending the day outside you usually like to go to bed early. This year we have had two groups now and things have been running well :) We very much welcome you to TrueLapland, Hetta and our familyhotel! See you soon! With kindest regards, Tiina from the reception the fourth generation at Majatalo
