"It was quite far away from everywhere indeed. We drove from Rovaniemi and it took us 3.5 hrs to be there. Staffs at reception were quite nice, but clearly not that competent... one forgot to put us down on the dinner reservation list so the waiter couldn't find our name, and the other took forever to register us for the husky tour. The hotel area was quite big, you car cannot go anywhere near the cabin, only by walk. It was quite hard to drag some pieces of big luggage on the thick snow for a 10mins walk. But everything paid off. The igloo was exactly the way I ever imagined it to be. They were located across a river, on the little hillside by the forest. Your got enough privacy as the whole igloo was surrounded by snow, and a good view from every igloo. We were not lucky enough to see the aurora but a whole night with a whole sky of stars and the milky way was like a dream come true. Room facility was simple but adequate, except there was no shower.

"The Eskelinen bus from Ivalo Airport to the hotel was a nice ride. Upon arrival at the hotel, the manager arranged for us to have breakfast immediately, told us briefing and other arrangement to be done after healing our stomach. That’s a very good gesture of hotel to all the guests upon their arrival. We stayed at the aurora cabin and unfortunately no sight of northern light but was a good experience with stars above us. But I would recommend the other cabin as it would be probably more spacious. The hotel staffs are all very kind and helpful, from the front desk to the Instructors on activities. My boy did a 1-1 snowshoeing hiking as at that pint of time no others signing up. Instructor was patience and kind to him throughout and he had great fun with him. Hotel is all the way in the forest, so suggest to sign up the activities prior to fit into your schedule. Suggest to check the bus timing out from hotel, so that you do not need to pay more for the transport out."

"We went for the Northern light sighting for 4 nights at Luosto Lapland. It was around -7 to -20 degree but the enter hotel was very comfortably warmed, so much so that we didn't really feel we were at such a cold area. We enjoyed the daily breakfast which gives good variety and fantastic view.. and also the convenience of finding all sorts of activities nearby to engage with just next to the hotel. "
