Beana is a Sami word for dog, and Laponia a Latin word for Lapland. These two elements capture what this lovely boutique hotel represents - the beautiful nature and wildlife in this wilderness land. The hotel values a relaxing environment and so offers holidays to adults only, ensuring a calm and tranquil setting for the perfect hideaway in Lappish wilderness.
The hotel is stylishly furnished throughout, with each of its 11 guest rooms individually decorated and well-equipped. There are 4 room types to choose from ranging from the Beana room with double or twin beds and modern facilities, up to the Laponia Suite with a private sauna. The restaurant serves delicious buffet style meals and guests can relax in the lobby bar or outdoor hot tub.
Our inclusive 4 night package provides a great combination of high quality small group activities, and with free use of toboggans, snowshoes and kick sledges to enjoy the pristine snowy surrounds, you’ll be glad of the sauna facilities which guests can use in the late afternoon to warm up before dinner is served each evening.
There are friendly huskies near the hotel so guests can meet them before venturing out on one of the included husky safaris, starting with a shorter introduction on how to mush your own team of dogs, then a second longer safari on the trail including an outdoor lunch by the camp fire.
Other wonderful activities include a snowmobile safari, visiting a reindeer farm where you meet the herder and listen to stories about their way of life and culture, and an evening snow shoeing trip on the look out for the northern lights while walking through the pristine snowy forest. Also, on one of the evenings enjoy a private sauna, Jacuzzi and outdoor hot tub to warm up after the day’s exertions. There is also a daily sauna available for guests to use between 16.00-18.30 hours, so the perfect opportunity to live like a local, if not only for a few days!
