Hotel Kakslauttanen


Hotel Kakslauttanen, Sweden is positioned in the peaceful setting of Saariselka, which is just a short drive from Action Park. The multiple facilities this unique hotel offers include a sauna, meeting rooms and an express check-in and check-out feature.

We’d recommend staying in one of the glass igloos where you can watch the amazing northern lights and sleep under the stars, while being in the comfort of a warm room.

The northern light season starts towards the end of August and lasts until around the end of April.

3Montana Magica Hotel

Montana Magica Hotel


This amazing looking hotel is also known as ‘Magic Mountain Lodge’. This unusual shaped hotel is covered with moss and vines and the ‘mountain’ erupts and water comes pouring down the sides of the building.

You can only reach the hotel on foot, and you need to cross a foot bridge to get inside. It certainly reminds us of the Ewok village in Star Wars!
