Arctic Lighthouse Hotel is located on Hailuoto, the largest island in the Gulf of Bothnia. Nestled at the foot of a former lighthouse, the truly unique and utterly fascinating hotel once served as a maritime pilot station and offers exceptional and expansive sea views across the gulf.
Thanks to its truly one-of-a-kind natural setting, Hailuoto island has achieved iconic status in Finland. Hailuoto is the third largest Finnish sea island and the only one in the Bay of Bothnia that remains permanently inhabited despite the absence of year-round road access. During the summer season, Hailuoto is connected to the main island by a free twice-hourly ferry service, while in winter it is connected by an ice road. The hotel is a half-hour drive away from the ferry terminal. The distance to Oulu is 62 km and the journey takes approximately one hour.
All rooms are equipped with a widescreen TV, shower room and complimentary Wi-Fi. Some rooms benefit from a lounge area and a balcony with sea views.
The hotel also has a reception area, bar, sauna and activity rooms. A natural heritage exhibition is also on display at the hotel. A guest marina is located immediately adjacent to the hotel, complete with a service building, waste disposal area and sauna facilities. A fully operational pilot boat marina is located next to the guest marina.
Beautiful location right next to the lighthouse. Clean and tastefully decorated rooms (some also allowed with pets). Great customer service from first contact to check out. One of the best restaurants I've ever been in: local incredients, good size portions, extremely friendly and professional service, wide range of items in breakfast buffet.
The hotel is a old pilot house in the island of Hailuoto. Next to the hotel is a lighthouse. Nearby the there is very nice beach, which was not crowded. There are three restaurants nearby, which provide among other things local sea food. The view is amazing. Rooms are nice, but nothing special. It is a nice place to visit for a few days.
Nice quality hotel with an excellent location. We booked the most inexpensive rooms. They were basic but all necessary was included. The breakfast was good and served to the table now during the covid pandemic. Usually the breakfast is served at the buffet. Dinner is available on request. There is a nice restaurant in the neighborhood also. Good walking / hiking possibilities. Also accessible routes. We also had the sea view and view to the lighthouse.
Wonderful to spend two nights in the superior room with superb views to the west, overlooking the village port. In winter it is a quiet location with plenty of space for outdoor activities. The staff were friendly, helpful and ensured we had a great stay.
Quite pricy lunch buffet with rather ordinary selection. 18,50€ for meat balls and mashed potatoes. Wine was sold in mini bottles worth 9€ and not even ice available. Friendly staff and super great views ofcourse.
