This was a great place to stop after hiking in yllas-pallastunturi park. Dinner is served buffet style with lots of salads one main dish deserts and coffee. A very satisfying experience to have real hearty food after many days in the woods.

We really liked this family run hotel. When we asked about the other buildings in the complex, we learned that many generations of this family are or have been a part of its history. That tradition shows in everything you see here. From my first email contact with Tiina to checkout, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms and activities... More

This family-run hotel is far from a five star hotel but it deserves five stars in the category of small family-owned hotels. Actually it is the oldest family company in tourism in Lapland. It has been open since 1924 and it is in the 4th generation. The hotel is situated in the center of Hetta, the main village of Enontekiö,... More
