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.

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.

When to go
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 meter of snow and it usually lasts until May. There is potential for Northern Lights viewing throughout the winter months.
