Our Location

Star Arctic Hotel is located on the top of the Kaunispää Mountain “Beauty Hill” of Saariselkä, near Ivalo, and 270 km north of the Arctic Circle in Lapland, Finland.

Saariselkä’s Ski Centre as well as a newly-built 1.2 km long sledding slope are just a minute’s walking distance from the hotel.

There is an excellent transportation network in the area, despite laying in the heart of the Arctic. The European highway number 75 runs through the area, along the road to the Arctic Sea, and it is only 25 kilometres away from Ivalo International Airport, which have regular direct flights from Helsinki and seasonally direct flights from London and Frankfurt.

Here, the Nordic modern civilization is perfectly integrated with Lapland’s own unique culture, which are all surrounded by a pure and touchless natural environment with a beautiful and unique arctic landscape.
