I had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Location is great - right next to lake (actually very close to several lakes), silence in the woods is amazing. Reindeer hanging around - most of them run away from humans, but one has learned to come to get some food. You need to have your own groceries and toiletries (closest shop in Ivalo), room is simple, but comfy enough - soft bed, hot shower (but same room as toilet resulting in wet floor after use). Anne will arrange for all kinds of activities, such as huskie safaris etc.

Location is really nice, beside the lake and in the forest, which makes it difficult though if you don't have your own transportation. Unfortunately the rooms were old and not really clean, same for bathroom/toilets, and the owners don't really help to "make you feel home". I would recommend if you have a car and want a nice location, otherwise there are good places closer to Ivalo city with better accommodation and host more welcoming.

Although the holiday village is a bit far from the town centre of Ivalo, it is definitely a great place to stay! Especially if you are looking for the best view of the northern lights! This place is secluded enough to offer the darkness for the great view of the northern lights ♡

This is really a great place to stay if you want to get away from the crowd and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Riitta, the owner, is so nice who always response quickly to all our requests - pick-up from and deliver to bus stop, stop-by at supermarket, early check-in, fix the light of chalet...etc~

Recommend to stay in Chalet, the lovely cozy wooden house that make you feel like home with everything you may need. At night, you can walk to the peaceful lake and enjoy the spectacular view. Although it was too cloudy when we were there and not able to see Northern lights, it was a wonderful stay.

P.S. Love the husky safari with visit to animal park with Tiina arranged by Anne and we enjoyed it very much. Don't miss it if you stay with Ukonjarvi.

This was an excellent place to stay and watch northern lights. You can bring your own groceries and cook in the cottage or order your food from them. There is a lake 50m away from the cottage, where we did northern lights photography. If you feel too cold, you can drive your car near to the lake and enjoy northern lights from inside your car. Very friendly staff and a nice place to visit. There are multiple bird feeders, so can do some birding/bird photography there.
