||For those looking for a relaxing stay in an attractive Lapland hotel, the Davvi hotel comes highly recommended. Occupying a privileged position on a quiet secluded hillside, the hotel is just on the Finnish side of the border with Sweden, within walking distance (approx. 1.5km) of the Swedish village of Karesuando. The hotel is well run by friendly, conscientious staff, who do their utmost to ensure that you enjoy your stay to the full. The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious.
The timber-built cabins are conveniently situated within the hotel grounds and are simple but cosy and all are en-suite. Most cabins are semi-detached and sleep three or four, with one double or two single beds plus a sofa-bed for up to two children in an open-plan area. Please note that, as with hotel rooms, when the cabins are filled to maximum occupancy levels, the space and storage can be limited. There are two large, detached two-bedroom cabins that can sleep five or six , with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom as well as a sofa-bed in the living area that can take one or two children or one adult. All cabins are located just metres from the main hotel building, where meals are taken. All cabins have saunas.
The beautiful restaurant is the centrepiece of the hotel and affords spectacular panoramic views across the snow-covered hillside over to the attractive village on the Swedish side of the border. The design of the restaurant is inspired by the tent building traditions of the nomadic Lappish people with its roughly circular shape and ceiling beams each pointing towards a centre point.
