Easy to get here
We are far north in Sweden by the shore of Torne river at the border Sweden Finland. Vitsaniemi is a small arctic village with only 62 nice and friendly people.
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.
