The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a rustic-built, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando. The circular design of the hotel was inspired by a reindeer corral and the views from the restaurant span over Swedish Lapland to the fells beyond.
Guests enjoy a stay at the hotel for a variety of reasons: whether an intrepid winter adventure in Lapland, or a relaxing base from which to hike during autumnal Ruska. Some just like to spend the night with us whilst passing on the way to the Norwegian coast.
