Star Arctic Hotel
Saariselkä, Lapland - Finland
In the early 2016, two families who shared the same passion decided to establish a hotel on the top of the Kaunispää mountain in Saariselkä. Why? The reason is simple – they are in love with this Arctic region.
The beauty of Finnish Lapland is so pure and powerful, like when the wildness is bathing in the aureate light of the midnight sun or the Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky. Here, it’s like living in a dream from which you don’t want to wake up, a spell you are completely mesmerized by. Therefore, the hotel wants to share their love with you by connecting you with the best that Lapland has to offer.
To get the best view of the Northern Lights and overlooking landscape, all Suites have a duplex structure with large glass windows. All of the Aurora Glass Cabins face north and have glass ceilings over beds. The glass roof covers half of the cabin, providing guests with unspoiled sky views. All the rooms are architecturally designed in a way that guests can conveniently watch northern lights, when they appear.
Star Arctic Hotel offers 57 Nordic style accommodation, of which 30 Scenic View Suites, 12 Scenic View Suites with sauna and kitchenette and 15 Aurora Glass Cabins.
The cabins are one of the highlights of the hotel, unique and innovative with their three-panel glass above the igloos’ beds.

The restaurant serves casually-elegant food using local natural ingredients, like the fish caught from the nearby Lake Inari and the reindeer meat provided by local Sami reindeer herders. The restaurant offers some of the most exciting Lappish dishes and popular modern cuisine.
The elegant Bar is located just besides the restaurant and offers various kinds of beverages from a wide selection of wines to the most popular cocktails.
Another highlight of the hotel is the hotel’s public sauna, which has large glass windows. Guests can experience Finnish sauna while overlooking the Arctic beauty in the distance.
There are two saunas at guests’ disposal, both located in the main building, and bookable for private use. The VIP sauna has more space and suits perfectly for a larger group of people and the second sauna is more intimate, therefore, ideal for couples and small families. Both saunas are equipped with a dressing room, rest area, WC and shower facilities. There is also a jacuzzi linked with the public sauna’s resting area.
