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.

The shutdown and challenges of local economy made us to seek for good quality holiday location in Finland offering good food and services. We couldn’t have chosen better by choosing the one week full activity program at Naali Lodge! We were spoiled with delightful breakfast at Tapio restaurant, carefully chosen activities, tasty lunches during day trips, good discussions with our guide Thierry, the best ever sauna in commercial location and amazing dinners at soon legendary restaurant Tapio. Finally we have in Finland an excellent accommodation combined with a world-class gourmet restaurant in relaxed atmosphere.

Naali Lodge is run by true professionals Thierry and Catherine Chevillard. Interestingly they know Finland really well. Thierry has qualified himself to a professional wilderness guide in Finland. Catherine looks after practicalities and has created a beautifully harmonious atmosphere in the lodge.

Program is fun and let’s you concentrate on nature and outdoors without any concerns. After the activities sauna is waiting for you before the dinner.

Rooms are very comfortable, spacious and decorated with good taste. Showers and toilets are shared among three rooms. All facilities are spotless clean. Very comfortable bed, beautiful linen and decorations.

We look forward going back and left with a new booking. Highly recommended! They may have availability still this summer.

My husband and I stayed at Naali lodge in July 2019 and we were hoping for a relaxing break and some wildlife adventures. Naali lodge did not disappoint and gave us so much more!!

The lodge itself was absolutely lovely- cosy and beautifully decorated, with everything we needed for our stay. Our hosts, Thierry and Catherine, were so welcoming and Thierry was a brilliant guide on the walks, he even took some gorgeous photos for us! I was 19 weeks pregnant when we visited and Thierry adjusted the walks and activities to accommodate me and ensure I felt comfortable throughout.

Another huge highlight was the restaurant. Connor and Johanna were wonderful hosts and the food was brilliant, especially the sourdough!!! Connor catered well for me as a pescatarian. Beautiful food in a lovely setting each day.

It was also great to meet the resident pets, especially
Neko the cat!

We really weren’t quite sure what to expect of Lapland in the Summer but would highly recommend a visit, great activities and beautiful scenery! We will be back!!!

This was one of the best travel experiences of my life.
The lodge is incredible and the nature surrounding it is absolutely amazing. Thierry and Catherine are amazing people that will go the extra mile to make you feel at home but also explain the wildlife and nature of Lapland. The activities are magical and the fact that they only work with people they trust makes it even better. We can feel that everybody they work with really cares about nature and love what they do. This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and the Naali Lodge is the best place to experience it.

Having returned to more reasonable latitudes, I can assure you that this trip is like no other.

What an experience!

As if the landscapes, wildlife and varied activities weren't enough, Catherine and Thierry, the two hosts, are simply adorable and dedicated to this job.

They tell us so at the start, but it's true that time stands still there. Everything stands still, freezing the marvellous before our eyes.

Just knowing that other people will be able to live this experience is enough to make me happy.

Well done!
Bravo !

Don't hesitate to book your dream week with Catherine and Thierry. The reality went beyond the pictures and what we expected from the stay. Our hosts would bend over backwards for you and are very respectful of nature and their environment. The place is a paradise for nature, calm...no pollution (noise, visual,...). Catherine is a cordon bleu and Thierry, an excellent guide but not a good fisherman :-D .... if you want to eat at lunchtime, trust Timo (the Finnish fisherman) :-)
The activities are magical: rein riding, sled dog riding, artic fishing and walks in nature reserves.
If you're wondering about the cold, it's totally manageable with ski gear. However, Thierry and Catherine will lend you extreme cold suits and SORELs for static activities.
Our honeymoon and the celebration of my 38th birthday were unimaginable and unforgettable

We spent a week in February at Thierry & Catherine’s and it was just amazing! This place is really wonderful; a little paradise full of snow, loving dogs, welcoming hosts and little attentions. We had a great time during all activities and the excellent restaurant is really bonus !
We recommend and it would be a pleasure to come back !

Amazing place! Such a cosy and beautifully decorated building. Beds are comfortable, and there is a big and good sauna. However, we recommend to buy a fridge to the living room. Also some knives would be nice.

Magical stay in a magical place
Go there with your eyes closed to dream with your eyes wide open
An enchanted break in this cozy lodge immersed in nature
Catherine, Thierry and Nathan take care of making this moment unforgettable. Catherine is a true cordon bleu, Thierry shares his knowledge with passion and Nathan is always up for a walk with Naali and Anky
The activities offered are fabulous with a real favorite for our 2-day immersion with the sled dogs!
Only one desire, to come back…..
Thank you again for this great experience appreciated by both adults and our teenagers.

In the heart of the forest lies a magical place, a week savored like an enchanted break.
A great discovery. A setting of nature, calm and grace.
Everything is perfect. A warm welcome, calm, a soothing atmosphere, like a timeless break.
A very beautiful address for the beauty of the place and its guests, the ambient serenity, the great delicacy of Catherine and Thierry in the attentive welcome and kindness. The rooms are beautifully decorated with excellent beds. The breakfast was excellent with a little something different every day: scrambled eggs, cinnamon buns, apple turnovers, ...
The cuisine is refined: superb plates tinged with varied local flavors while
balance.
As for activities, Thierry is an attentive and educational guide with impeccable organization. We were able to discover breathtaking landscapes that were very different from one day to the next.
