hovering aurora borealis 


We want to share the beauty of the nature, how to make a fire, how to cook outdoors and how to enjoy the tranquillity.

In the darkness by the fire you can experience the Polar sky with the glittering stars and the hovering Aurora Borealis.

Life can be as simple as that.

arctic village


Easy to get here

Find us far north in Sweden at the border Sweden Finland, an arctic village with only 62 nice and friendly people.

Easy to get here by flight with SASNorwegian or Finnair.
The closest airport is Kemi in Finland less than one hour from us.  Luleå and Rovaniemi are about 1,5 hours drive.  Oulu is three hours away.

Rental car should be booked in advance. Most rental car companies are located at the airport.

Flight to Helsinki and then by train to Lapland and we pick you up at the station in Ylitornio, 30 minutes from Arthotel Tornedalen.
Bus from Luleå Airport with Länstrafiken Norrbotten takes you to the door.  

Transfer option from Luleå airport is by Helicopter.  Wouldn't it be amazing to explore Swedish Lapland from above. Fly from Luleå airport along the Baltic Bay directly to your door. We arrange this trip as well as the other transfer options.

Welcome to Arthotel Tornedalen:)
