This is a small, friendly hotel. Ideal for families and groups. The rooms are clean and spacious. The restaurant basic, but everything is simply cooked by members of the family, who run and own the hotel. It is not smart or luxurious, but basic, clean and good value for money.

Dear Kerrie,

thank you for your contact and greetings from snowy and chilly Lapland!

Nice to hear that you will visit us next month. We do not sell any activities so you can book them through Transun or from the local companies, tosilappi.fi/en/things-to-do/winter/.

You and your family are warmly welcomed to TrueLapland, Enontekiö and our familyhotel!

With kindest regards,

Hei!

In the evenings you can and should have some snowfun outside the hotel, especially as you do not have so much time here. You can book some Northern Lights or other evening activities through Transun or direct from the local companies (you can see Tosilappi's website). After spending the day outside you usually like to go to bed early.

This year we have had two groups now and things have been running well :)

We very much welcome you to TrueLapland, Hetta and our familyhotel! See you soon!

With kindest regards,

Tiina from the reception

In December it is a really good chance to see Northern Lights. You just need to have clear sky. If you come to Lapland and Enontekiö it is nice to see the area also on safaris like with huskies, snow mobiles, snow shoes.. We do serve vegetarian food if requested.

Welcome to our familyhotel.

Please do not hesitate to ask more information info@hetan-majatalo.fi.

Dear SarahBooRaket,

it would be nice to have you here as our guest.

You can take a flight to Helsinki and then fly to Enontekiö (Flybe) or Kittilä (Finnair, Norwegian...). There also might be direct flights from Paris / Amsterdam to Kittilä.

Or from Helsinki you can take the train to Rovaniemi or Kolari (VR) and then come by bus to Enontekiö (Matkahuolto).

I will help your planning with pleasure. Please send an e-mail to info@hetan-majatalo.fi.

Thank you!

With kindest regards,
