Location

Your accommodation is at Vaattunki Wilderness Resort located deep in the quiet wilderness of the Lapland region, 20km from Rovaniemi.

The transfer time from Rovaniemi is under half an hour drive.

Far north of the Arctic Circle, the area you’ll be staying in is a vast expanse of pristine pine forest that is home to bears, golden eagles, wolverines, and thousands of reindeer.

The restaurant, saunas, reindeer and husky areas are all right in the resort, along with cosy cabins with electric fires and panorama glass windows. The cabins are lined by uninhabited fells and forests.
