We are beautifully located on the bank of the Torne river with an amazing view across to Finland.
Arthotel Tornedalen is a lifestyle hotel with full board accommodations in privacy with focus on high-end amenities in renovated country houses.
The Bedroom view
The wood-fired sauna is an integral part of Tornedalen culture. And taking a sauna together with friends and family is still the natural way to socialise and relax.
When relaxing in the sauna at Arthotel Tornedalen you do it in privacy.

Canoeing on torne river
We want to share the beauty of nature, how to make a fire, how to cook outdoors and how to enjoy the tranquillity.
Sit by the fire, experience the Arctic sky with glittering stars and in summer the Midnight sun.

easy to find us
Easy to get here
We are far north in Sweden on the bank of the Torne river at the border Sweden Finland. Vitsaniemi is a small Arctic village with only 62 people – nice and friendly ones .
You get here by flight with SAS, Norwegian or Finnair.
The closest airport is Kemi in Finland less than one hour from us. Luleå in Sweden and Rovaniemi in Finland are about 2 hours drive. Oulu in Finland 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 Finnish railway to Lapland and we pick you up at the station in Ylitornio or in Tornio 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. I recommend it for sight seeing and it takes only some 30 minutes. Wouldn't it be amazing to explore Swedish Lapland from above. Helicopter from Luleå airport along the Baltic Bay directly to your door. We arrange this trip as well as the other transfer options.
