Accommodation Details

Arctic Star Hotel

Overview

Situated on the outskirts of Swedish Karesuando, the Arctic Star is a traditional and friendly hotel offering superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell. Here, you are well placed to explore Karesuando on foot, dropping in at Sweden’s most northerly church, paying a visit to the local museum and regularly crossing the Finnish-Swedish border.

Whilst simple and comfortable, the hotel has recently undergone a programme of modernisation and has all the essentials you need for a good stay including an open plan bar and dining area. The rooms are simple and cosy, with room upgrades available. You may also be interested in the Davvi Arctic Lodge, located on the Finnish side of Karesuando.

Your stay will be on a full-board basis. Meals are taken at the hotels' on-site restaurant and drinks can be purchased from the adjacent bar.

Davvi Arctic Lodge
(January - March only)

Overview

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.

Deep in the heart of True Lapland, and located on the offical Northern Lights route, Karesuando offers once-in-life-time Arctic experiences without the crowds. For those looking to stay in the Swedish side of the village we also offer Northern Light stays at the Arctic Star hotel.
