Davvi Fell House
The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a charming, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando. The beautiful restaurant, its circular design inspired by the shape of a Sami reindeer corral, is the hotel’s centrepiece and from here you can enjoy panoramic views over the snow-covered hillside to Swedish Lapland located just across the border.
The Fell House provides spacious accommodation, ideal for groups and families. The two bedroom family rooms sleep five to six persons, with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom as well as a sofa in the sitting room. The three bedroom family rooms accommodate seven to nine persons with one double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, as well as a sofa bed in the sitting room.
The Fell House is 150m away from the main Davvi Arctic Lodge building where meals are taken. It is connected by a well-lit, purpose built footpath through the forest, which is on an incline with steps and may not be suitable for the elderly, infirm or people with walking difficulties. All Fell House accommodation has private facilities (shower & WC) as well as a television and DVD player.

The village is set on the edge of a vast wilderness where beauty, nature and wildlife abound. From the hill Kaare-vaara you have a fantastic view of Sweden,Finland, Norway and the mountain Pältsa.
