Kota dinner

A dinner by a campfire with the true wilderness feel, aroma of smoke and cozy, rustic atmosphere is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Lapland visitors. 

In our kota-dinner the food is partly prepared by the open fire while guests are seated around the fire, which is the center of the kota. 

This is a perfect welcome dinner on your arrival day, remember to go via the ice-bar on your way to the kota!

Ice bar

Available in the Winter season

In winter, hot or cold drinks in our Ice Bar is a perfect way to start the evening!

The ice bar is also a perfect place for an arctic party with disco under the stars. The bar is located next to Restaurant Kultala and opposite the kota so it is easy to incorporate in your dinner plans.

As the ice bar is rebuilt each year, it has a different look each winter. We are happy to take your event into consideration in the making of the ice bar. 

The ice bar is only open on request.

to chalets, sauna or sauna-hut

You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the privacy of your chalet, or top off a sauna evening with a meal served in the hut located next to the sauna. 

The arrival snack-pack is a good idea for late arrivals or just to have some goodies to nibble in between. 

Catering service should be booked in advance, at least if desired for the arrival day.
