Had to add my comments about the Davvi Artic Lodge.Spent a week there in January and had the most wonderful time. Tried things I never expected to do and had the aches and pains to prove it. The Hotel is basic but always wonderfully warm. We had the room next to reception which was quite spacious and warm. The beds were large and very comfortable with plenty of space for clothes in the cupboards. The bathroom was very small but had underfloor heating. A note to take a travel plug for the sink. Several people mentioned they were missing from the rooms.
The lounge was large and very comfortable with large settees and chairs and a welcoming log fire. Therte is a large TV but this does not have English channels. There are books to read and games provided along with DVDS.
The bar area is cosy with lovely views and leads to the dining area. This has large windows all around showing off the views.
We enjoyed all the trips with the exception of the knife factory. However if you are into hunting and fishing etc you could find something you needed.
All the trips were well organised and ran to time. I especially enjoyed the cross country sking even if i did get lost on the course.!!! (Someone is always on hand to find and collect the strays so no need to worry)
Tom one of the chefs was a hoot. He produced some excellent meals and you need never feel hungry. The staff who waited on were lovely and had time for a chat.
One of the best parts of this trip was the friendliness of the others holidaymakers. On many a night a large group could be found on the hill looking for the Northern Lights around a pit fire
and then a quick return down the hill on sledges which were provided at the hotel.
Theres not a lot to do outside the hotel. Its about a 20 minute walk down into Sweden with only a couple of shops. There is large gift and souviners store next to the petrol station which doubles as a cafe.
While we were there the temperature was an average of -10c a mild winter for them. However we had taken thermal underwear and layered this. The suits provided were very warm along with the boots.
All in all this was an excellent trip and would love to do it again next year.
