Hotel Ivalo is surrounded by Northern Lapland's wilderness and the National Park with its numerous rivers, lakes and fells. From Ivalo you can continue on to Northern Norway, the Arctic Ocean and the North Cape, Hammerfest or the Murmansk region of Russia. The activity service Club Nord provide wintertime experiences such as hunting the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), enjoying the Lappish nature driving with snowmobiles, husky dog safaris, reindeer or horse sleigh rides. In the summertime, activities include trekking, fishing, canoeing and even gold panning. A visit to the reindeer farm may be the highlight of your stay or indeed a visit to the Sami Museum Siida and the Northern Lapland Nature Centre.

Probably, this is one of the most famous hotels in Ivalo. The room is good and clean. Bathrooms are clean but some may find them old and outdated. The hotel has a nice sauna and a pool. Breakfast is excellent with a variety of choices....More
