For those who value silence and clean nature, Ivalo offers a wide range of experiences without the fuss of mass tourism. Hotel Ivalo is situated on a riverside along the main road to the Arctic Sea, but still near to services and the airport.
Hotel room and restaurant windows face the river and the magnificent Lapland landscape, where, in the dark, you can admire the northern lights from either location, praises Sini Suomalainen, managing director of Hotel Ivalo.
Our guests also have three saunas, hot jacuzzis on the riverside, and a hole in the ice for winter swimming experience.
A GENUINE EXPERIENCE IN THE PEACE OF NATURE
According to the Finnish Meteorological Institutem in the winter, the nothern lights can be seen in Ivalo four nights out of five.
The warm, cozy Aurora Cabins at Aurora Village, 1.5 kilometres from Hotel Ivalo, are fantastic for spotting northern lights. In each wooden cabin, the glass roof faces the northern starry sky, so you can admire the slow dance of the northern lights from your own bed.
A northern lights Alert System is also available so you can ensure you won’t miss the show even if you fell a sleep.
AUTHENTIC WINTER WONDERLAND SURROUNDED BY SILENCE
Hotel Ivalo and Aurora Village have many special services and activities to offer; northern lights excursions by snowmobile, reindeer, car, skis or snowshoes, as well as horse- or reindeer-drawn sleigh rides, husky safaris, ice fishing excursions and ice karting races.
