Warm, cosey, luxurious perfection! Super kind people, amazing guides, high quality equipment and the care of the dogs was phenomenal. The epitome of a winter break with the huskies being an absolute highlight. Thank you!

Spent three nights here to go dog sledding and see the Northern Lights. Location is remote and peaceful. We were lucky to see the Lights every night.
The dogs were the best - really cool experience being with them all day. One complaint was that we had a small tour on day two and it ended up being just my husband and I and one other lady. The made us share the sled so that the older lady could share with the guide. We would have rather each had our own as it was day two of sledding.
if you are a dog lover, go see the kennels. They are in great condition and the dogs are the sweetest. Quite an operation they have!
An absolute must is the sauna - reserve it for a really cool experience of sauna and hot tub - inside and outside options. With a bottle of champagne!
Loved talking to the owner - she was super friendly and fun!

Where do I start!
My family and I (6 adults) spent 5 nights here to experience a White Christmas. Pick up from the airport was good, monitoring the late flight in and pick up of the rest of us from the hotel was no problems. Brenda was the van driver and all went smoothly.
Greeted by the owner, Mulla upon arrival.
10 of the 11 rooms were booked with a total of 17 guests.
Beana Laponia is 4 years old. A boutique hotel in a renovated former foster kids hostel.
Beautifully finished with floors warm and practical for ice and water, murals of huskies on the walls, many individual seating areas, rooms warm, spacious and comfortable. Complimentary and fast wi-fi. Licensed to serve alcohol. It is unashamedly marketed for adults only. Not a cheap experience but worth every cent.
Buffet breakfast with a la Carte hot food. Lunch and dinner a la carte from local produce. The meals were first rate with a changing menu. Petri is a first class chef.
All rooms are issued with a 5 day itinerary outlining what and when you are participating in activities, including personal time in the sauna and spa, indoor or outdoor!
All guests are then kitted out in warm water proof overall suits, boots and gloves for outdoor activity, with balaclavas and helmets provided for the snow mobiles activity.
Tobogganing, visit and pet the dogs whenever you wish.
Two to a snow mobile and changing drivers half way through we had 3 hours on the mobiles.
A short bus drive into Santa’s Village for a 2 hour visit one day. Located right on the Arctic Circle line. This could be removed from the itinerary as it is targeted more at children. Feasted on salmon cooked over an open fire by Aki for lunch at Husky Point, outside of Rovaniemi. The family farm and original dog kennels. Petted some pups and Alaskan Huskies and had a short presentation by Aki and Joona on husky racing and the preparation that goes into competing in the events. Terrific.
A short reindeer sleigh ride and feeding some reindeers then back to the lodge.
A snow shoe trek to the top of a hill at 10 pm possible northern lights viewing and around a fire in a Sami tee pee some stories about original life in the far north of Finland.
Dog sled mushing for 24 kms could have gone for 240 km's.
Absolutely sensational. Driving our own sled was fantastic.
It is the little things which show a lot of thought and makes the experience so much more memorable and enjoyable at Beana Laponia.
-mulled wine and with a shot of vodka if you wish at break time in the tobogganing.
-mulled wine and a chocolate bar at break time in the snow mobiles which was taken in the husky enclosure visiting the dogs.
-a tray of delicious chocolates to select from at lunch and dinner on most days.
-one night the guys placed, I would estimate, some 30 or 40 candle pots around the outside of the lodge along the road/path merely as it looks nice from inside.
-food is laid on with most people cutting back on the number of courses.
-a small gift on Christmas Day.
All the staff were great and work really hard during their peak season. Many hotels to choose from so strong competition.
Hotels and tour companies try to align nationalities where possible for language benefits.
Thank you to in particular.....
Jasmine - reception and dining
Monica - dining
Anna Marie - reception and dining
Katia - dining
Mulla - owner and manager
Joona - son of owners and activities. Legend on the snow mobiles.
Toni - (honorary Aussie). Activities and together with Vincent took us sledding.

And all the rest of the team we often didn't see. All were so generous and patient with their time for us.

Room tip: All are great.

A fine hotel in an excellent wilderness.
The hotel amenities and room comfort leave nothing to be desired
A delicious breakfast and fine dinner was freshly prepared by an excellent cook. The service staff served the meals promptly and courteously.
The entire hotel was spotless and very up to date.
In the seven days that I was here, there was a new adventure just outside the door, snowmobile tour, reindeer safari, the northern lights teepee, hiking with skis, or even snowshoes.
Every piece of equipment was in excellent working condition from the extensive clothing to the gloves and snow boots.
And the absolute highlight is the dog sled trip - preferably every day!
Many thanks to Anniina and Toni who let us have an unforgettable trip.
We will gladly come again.
