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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Un sitio de ensueño donde puedes ser uno con la naturaleza sin renunciar a las comodidades modernas. Lapinleuku es un complejo de cabañas en medio de la zona de bosques y lagos de Ivalo, a pocos kilómetros del aeropuerto y a pocos pasos del lago, con sauna, en medio de la naturaleza y donde tranquilamente te puedes levantar un día y ver un reno pasar cerca de tu ventana. Como decía, un lugar donde perderse (voluntariamente) una temporada y desde luego donde desconectar. Muy recomendable!

Stayed here two nights and was pleasantly surprised. The plan was to see the northern lights, but due to heavy clouds, it wasn't in the cards. The lodge made up for it. We had a cabin that slept about 7. There was a large window that overlooked a lake with mountains in the background. This place is pretty remote so we ate in the dining room each day. A full breakfast buffet came with the meal and it was plentiful and good. The lunch and dinner menu was not extensive, but everything we ordered was excellent. I would highly recommend Wilderness.

What can i say! Their welcome and their hospitality made my stay even more beautiful! I will not be writing alot but Finland is a country to visit,A country filled with nature. The wilderness hotel offers you cabins with glass windows so you can sleep under the stars or if you are lucky watch the aurora. This is a one of a kind experience that you all need to do!

ci siamo stati in viaggio di nozze...accoglienza stupenda e atmosfera da sogno ci hanno accompagnati ogni giorno che abbiamo trascorso qui!!! Il gestore sembra uscire direttamente dai libri sugli gnomi...la camera rustica bellissima certo se uno non cerca lusso hi-tech e modernità, il cibo tipico, genuino e squisito!!!

Siamo arrivati il 30 giugno e subito ci accoglie il gestore un personaggio straordinario sulla ottantina appena vediamo le camere ci sembra impossibile tutto fatto da lui in legno ogni stanza diversa con il suo caminetto in pietra panche e tronchetti per sedere intorno al fuoco. Alle 8 ci serve una cena a base di zuppa e salmone squisita con tanto di dessert. Andateci una esperienza da provare!!!!!

有點簡陋,但別有風味!有乾蒸桑拿室,感覺很配合大自然,門外屋頂看見不怕人的小松鼠在吃松菓,很可愛!偶然住一晚這種小木屋也很有趣!

This place is extraordinary. We were picked up by Timo from the bus station, because Lapinleuku is 22km from the city. So here is immediately my first advise. If you don't have a car, I suggest you look for some other place. It is beautiful, desolated, adorable (all is build by Timo and his hands), but it is far away from everything. Timo and his wife are very helpful, but old. They cook great like in other reactions is mentioned and they look after your well being. Most likely as Timo told us, this will most likely be there last year operating Lapinleuku. He showed pictures from newspapers all over the country where he was in with a famous actor, because the actor and his crew filmed there for several weeks. He is so proud of his place and he should. The rooms are very cosy, everything is made of wood. The place and Timo and his wife created a memory I will never forget, so if you would like this as well, go quickly as they probably won't be there for long. Enjoy the rest, food and friendliness. Thanks for the memory!!!

Rond de kerst hier 2 nachten vebleven samen met mijn vriend. We waren de enige gasten op dat moment en zijn echt geweldig goed behandeld. Het karakteristieke hotel wordt gerund door een ouder echtpaar die ons goed verzorgt hebben. Toen we aankwamen kregen we een mooie rondleiding, je hebt een hoofd gebouw en een bijgebouw waar meerdere kamers in zitten. Daarna stond het eten voor ons op tafel. Heerlijke wortelsoep vooraf en rendierenvlees met aardappelen, lingonbessen en ui. Het eten is goed en geef je aan hoelaat je wilt eten/ontbijten/lunchen, dan staat het voor je klaar. Wil.je gebruik maken vam de sauna, dan zorgt Timo er voor dat de sauna gebruikt kan worden. Wil je extra hout voor het haardvuur? Dan komt Timo met een grote slee vol met hout het gebouw in lopen. De omgeving is heel mooi, heuvels om vanaf te sleeën, een meer om overheen te wandelen in de winter. In de zomer zal het wat drukker zijn, ook in de omgeving met alle valantiehuisjes. Kortom, we hebben hier twee mooie hele mooie, goed verzorgde dagen gehad.

non andateci se cercate il lusso, la ricercatezza o la perfezione, ma se cercate il fascino di una posizione incantevole immersa nella foresta e sul magico Lago Inari, rustici lodge in legno con il camino in ogni camera e l'anima di Timo, il padrone di casa, colto, discreto con la battuta pronta che prepara il miglior salmone alla brace che abbiamo mai provato, ti chiama quand"è pronta la sauna, ti apre il suo fantastico "night club" con chitarra dal vivo , questo è il miglior posto che si podda trovare

Ho appena trascorso il Capodanno al lapinleuko hotel. La sensazione è quella di essere in un luogo dove il tempo si è fermato e la natura è la grande protagonista. L hotel è semplice, gestito da due gentili ed arzilli vecchietti. 19 stanze in legno, accessoriate soltanto con lo stretto necessario (no phon, no tv, no armadi) ma ben riscaldate e con bagno in stanza. I pasti vengono serviti in un salone comune dove tutti gli ospiti si ritrovano insieme. Il cibo è semplice ma buono. A disposizione vi sono due saune, una moderna e di recente costruzione e l l'altra tradizionale in riva al lago (assolutamente da provare quest'ultima, ricordandosi di portare con sè qualcosa da bere!). Il luogo è incantevole con accesso diretto al lago dove la sera è possibile ammirare immersi nel silenzio l'aurora boreale. Consiglio l'hotel a viaggiatori con spirito di adattamento e che apprezzino la semplicità e la calma.
