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 Fell House provides spacious accommodation that is ideal for families. The two-bedroom family rooms sleep 5-7, with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, and a sofa in the sitting room which can convert to accommodate two children (or one adult), and space for an extra chair bed or put up bed. The three-bedroom family rooms accommodate 7-9, with one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms, as well as a sofa in the sitting room which can convert to accommodate two children (or one adult), and space for an extra chair bed or put up. The Fell House is located approximately 150 metres from the main Davvi Arctic Lodge building, where meals are taken. It is connected by a purpose built footpath through the forest, which is on an incline with steps and may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties. All Fell House accommodation has private facilities (shower and WC) and is equipped with larger than standard TV screens showing local programmes only.
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.
