Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are looking for a superbe break of everyday crazy life, there is no place better or more relaxing to go. The scenery is stunning, the whole staff is warm and friendly, the hotel is better than you can image. And don't even get me started of the food the chef presents every day. Plain and simple magic! Snow mobile riding, walks in winter wonderland, husky safari... Best holiday ever!

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

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

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!

Wonderful welcoming family run lodge in a remote part of North Lapland. Adults only. Serene forest and river side location. This is primarily a husky breeding and training business and they share the experience with their guests. We went on 60 Kms dog sledding journey, also snow mobile safaris and walking in the snow covered forests. Food was good, rooms were comfortable and very quiet. One warning, it is not cheap, but in our opinion the experience is so special that it is worth it.

If you are looking for the perfect place to spend time this is amazing part of the world this is it. My daughter loves huskies and we found this place via our travel agent, yes I still use one, but what a find. The hotel is just perfect and having huskies on site made it more special. We went out on snowmobiles, were woken up to see the stunning Northern lights, but the husky safari was the highlight, driving a sled with five amazing animals desperate to pull you along is something we as a family will never forget. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to experience real Lapland hospitality. My daughter never goes back to a place or hotel, she believes the world is too big to explore, but she has said this is one of the places that she will break that rule for. Thank

Excellent hotel, great food and friendly staff. We visited for my wife’s Birthday and we weren’t disappointed, everything was just what we had hoped for. Husky sledding heaven on the Laponia Day. We will be visiting again.

When you love huskies, & you are going to stay at a boutique husky hotel you don’t really think about any of the other elements that may go in tow with the experience. But this hotel offered everything we could have wanted and more. The rooms were incredibly cosy and a great size. The lobby constantly had a roaring fire and bar for us to unwind - and with it being such a small hotel we were able to pleasantly chat to other guests about the activities they had booked and enjoyed with the hotel. We decided to do the snow shoeing, visit to meet reindeer which were both fantastic but our favourite was the husky safari! An unforgettable experience. But there are lots of other great things to do. The tobogganing we enjoyed every day, it’s was so much fun! There is also a sauna and

This was a 50th birthday present for me as I’ve always wanted to go dog sledding. The hotel is very much an activity location and it’s dogs all the way for me having tried most of them. We tried most of their activities and the only low was the slightly comical reindeer trip, which is really something for kids. The snowmobile and husky safaris though are the total dog’s doodahs. My only regret is that we didn’t go out with the dogs more than once. Their enthusiasm for running and their stamina is so infectious. In February, it can be stinking cold (-30°C) but the supplied clothing works well for most activities. If you are a passenger on the husky sled, remember to layer up as even with the all in one waterproofs, it’s still cold. Guides are phenomenal and really add to
