My friend and I stayed here as part of a tour that we booked - though you can tell this was geared more towards couples, we will had a fantastic time here! It was a very boutique place (limited rooms) which meant that we received a much more personalised service and we definitely felt very welcome throughout our stay. The rooms was great as well - there was a double door, so it reduces the noise from outside, the bed were super comfortable and the bathroom was quite spacious. We had some complimentary drinks and we were given some outdoor clothes and boots which we can use anytime throughout our stay, We also had the opportunity to use the jacuzzi and sauna one night (private booking), and the staff were really great as they interrupted us towards the end to let us know that there was a prediction of Northern lights in a few minutes! So we rushed back to wear our gear and headed out to see the show! :) We did a lot of the activities - dog sledding, snow mobiling, free toboggan and free walking trails. The food was outstanding as well! It was a modern take on the Finnish food and we loved every meal! We stayed at the Glass Igloo after this but we both agreed that our stayed at Beana Laponia was far better! Compliments to both the staff and the chef. Would love to stay here again!…
We only spent 1 night at this fabulous lodge but wished it was more. The room was incredible - it was the lowest price room they had but there were still plenty of special touches. It was roomy and the bathroom was spacious - all of the towels and linen were good quality. It contained everything we needed & we had a great sleep! The breakfast was wonderful - plenty of choice & everything was lovely & fresh. The dinner was also quite nice but as it was a set menu my only comment would be that the offer of an alternate meal for us fussy eaters would have been appreciated. We went out in the evening for a husky safari which was incredible. No northern lights but the gorgeous huskies, their amazing enthusiasm, the knowledgeable guide, the exciting ride through the dark snowy wilderness was more than enough. It was pricey but worth it. One thing that was very odd though was that we had to provide a deposit to use the lodges headlamps. Considering that the room, the dinner & the safari were all quite expensive I actually found this a little bit insulting. My only other suggestion if you are visiting would be that if you are anything other than an average size make sure you take your own snow gear as the options available from the lodge are very limited. The staff were lovely and went out of their way to assist when we had an issue with our hire car. Also prior to our stay, all emails and questions were answered promptly.…
This is a beautiful, family run lodge for adults only. They literally couldn’t have done for us during our stay. They will organise all of your trips for you, many of which can be done directly from site. They are also really flexible if you need to change any of your plans. There’s a cosy lounge area to relax in during the evenings and the onsite kitchen is excellent. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable and most importantly know how to look after the sledge dogs properly. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience and will definitely be coming back one day.
In Lapland there are an awful lot of tourist traps and gimmick hotels. This is certainly not the case at Beana Laponia. It is an adult only 11 room hotel set in the middle of nowhere! We had a beautiful corner suite with our own sauna. We did snow mobile, reindeer safari but the absolute highlight was the husky safari. We set off in the morning and stopped for a campfire lunch, just amazing. The food was excellent and the staff incredibly friendly. It was just perfect!
