Davvi Lodge Hotel & Cabins

Davvi Arctic Lodge Hotel
Davvi Arctic Lodge

THE DAVVI ARCTIC LODGE is set on the edge of the wilderness, on a quiet secluded hillside in the village of Karesuando. Here, you will experience the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful region, unsullied by mass tourism or commercialisation, coupled with a local hospitality that is always eager to extend a warm welcome to visitors.

The centrepiece of the hotel is its beautiful restaurant, which provides spectacular panoramic views across the snow-covered hillside towards the Swedish part of Karesuando, just across the nearby border. Many guests enjoy exploring the surroundings in their free time.

The design of the restaurant is inspired by the Sami kota, the reindeerhide tent that has for centuries been the traditional home to the nomadic people of the region. The restaurant is roughly semi circular in shape, with ceiling beams each joining a centre point, as do the supporting poles of a kota. Nearby is the lounge area, again part of a circular structure, with a centre skylight that represents the ventilation hole at the top of a Sami kota. The lounge is comfortably furnished with sofas, chairs and occasional tables, and is equipped with a large flat-screen television.

The Davvi Arctic Lodge has a warm and friendly atmosphere and is well run by a conscientious staff, who are dedicated to ensuring that you enjoy your stay at their hotel to the fullest extent.
