Overview: hotel description: Star Arctic Hotel description

The Star Arctic Hotel was built in 2017 and is situated in Saariselkä, 270 km north of the Arctic Circle in Lapland, Finland, where the northernmost ski resort of Europe is also located. There is an excellent transportation network in the area, despite laying in the heart of the Arctic. The European highway number 75 runs through the area and it is only 25 km away from Ivalo International Airport. Here, there is a pure and touchless natural environment with a beautiful and unique landscape. The Nordic modern civilization is perfectly integrated with Lapland's own culture. Star Arctic Hotel is located on the top of the “Beauty Hill” of Saariselkä, which is the highest location in the entire region. From inside the hotel or hotel area, you can experience the full view of Saariselkä as well as the beautiful Arctic landscapes in the distance. The hotel's exterior design blends harmoniously with the surroundings of the nature. All Scenic View Suites are equipped with large glass windows facing toward the landscape, which is a perfect balance of modern architecture embodied with simple elegance. The 57 welcoming units offer a perfect place to relax at the end of the day.

This accommodation only holiday to Star Arctic Hotel in Saariselka, Finland / Lapland departs Saturday 16th March 2024, for a 7 night stay on a "bed & breakfast" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 2024 was between €1 and €3 per person, per night.

Europe’s northernmost ski resort, Saariselkä is 250km up from the Arctic Circle, not far from the Russian border. One of the main resorts in Lapland – the legendary home of Father Christmas – it has snow-sure skiing, a Christmas-card-esque village and heaps of festive activities all in one place. The village itself is surrounded by forest and full of winter wonderland charm, with its own little chapel, some shops and restaurants and accommodation ranging from spa hotels to traditional log cabins.

Spread across the Iisakkipää and Kaunispää fells, the ski area is modestly-sized, with 6 ski lifts taking you up to 15 slopes. The bus is quite regular and does drop-offs at the top of the slopes and the base. From the base, one chairlift takes you to the top of Kaunispää (the rest of the lifts are T bars). All pistes take you back to the same part of the valley, where you’ll find campfires and cafés to warm up and rebuild your energy stores. This isn’t a challenging ski area and the slopes would best...
With only 15 slopes, this isn’t meant to be a resort where the sole focus is skiing and there are tonnes of other activities to fill up the week. Snowmobiling, reindeer and husky safaris really are as fun as they look and all are a great way to enjoy the surroundings.
