As the first adult only hotel in Finnish Lapland, Beana Laponia provides the ideal place for couples or friends to experience the magic and beauty of Lapland. With just 11 rooms, it has a lovely intimate feel and larger parties have the option to hire the property for exclusive use.

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 daily changing menu of dishes from delicious locally sourced ingredients, including reindeer, freshly caught salmon and many other fish too as well as a variety of freshly picked berries.


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. You can even go off on multi day trips and learn how to mush staying at different locations along the way.

We can also arrange reindeer farm visits and reindeer sleigh rides as well as snowmobiling and snow shoeing excursions.
