Average time to visit
Winter is the perfect time to visit Finnish Lapland. The winter temperatures can vary anywhere between 0°C and -40°C. The average temperature in January is -14°C, but the cold is not biting because the air is dry. There can be as much as one metre of snow and it usually lasts until May. There is potential for Northern Lights viewing throughout the winter months.

Beana Laponia is an adults-only boutique hotel in the heart of Finnish Lapland. Surrounded by a mesmerising snowy landscape, Beana Laponia offers a wilderness hideaway with an abundance of winter activities on its doorstep.

With a variety of activities to choose from, you can experience the thrill of husky sledding, venture off snow-shoeing through the forest or have fun downhill tobogganing.
After a long day out in the snow, retreat back to the hotel spa where you can warm up in the sauna, unwind in the hot tub or even enjoy a massage. There is also an outdoor hot tub where you can relax, take in the remarkable surroundings and may even be lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis.
The hotel also offers a relaxed bar and lounge area where you can enjoy a pre or post dinner drink on the comfortable sofas and share stories with fellow guests.

There is a lovely restaurant on site serving a changing menu of dishes from delicious locally-sourced ingredients, including reindeer, freshly-caught salmon and a variety of freshly-picked berries. There is also a gift shop at the property.
The name Beana Laponia actually translates as 'Dog Lapland', so it is unsurprising that they have a strong focus on husky sledding here. They have their own pack of dogs on the land near the hotel, so you can go and meet the dogs before going off on a sledding adventure.
We can also arrange reindeer farm visits and reindeer sleigh rides as well as snowmobiling and snow shoeing excursions.

Beana Laponia is the place for you if you love huskies and want to experience a more authentic Finnish holiday. The rooms are cosy and are a great place to relax at the end of the day. The main lounge area centres around a roaring fire with large windows out onto the snow-covered woodland below. The owners enthusiasm for her huskies is infectious and you cant help but fall in love with them. Im already dreaming of revisiting for a winter wonderland escape.

When I visited in November 2015, the hotel was due to open in just a few weeks. I absolutely loved the concept and thought that an adult-only hotel was an inspired idea. The toboggan slope, although I didn't actually have time to have a go on it, looked incredible and the outdoor hot tub very tempting too.
