The Pietikainen family's Wilderness Lodge at Harriniva stands alongside the frozen Muonio River marking the border between Finnish and Swedish Lapland and is home to the largest husky breeding kennels in Lapland.

The glow from the windows lights up the pine that the Lodge and its giant Aurora Kota are built from, and illuminates the ice sculptures scattered around its entrance.

The hotel's rooms are all clad in local pine, simply furnished with handicraft fabrics, have private WC/Shower and envelop you in their cosiness.

The lodge has a cosy bar serving soft drinks, snacks, coffee/tea throughout the day and where in the evening you will often find some form of local entertainment. There are 3 dining rooms, one with an open fireplace. The key to this informal friendly lodge is the Pietikainen family who pride themselves on providing exceptional standards of service and there is always someone on hand to look after you.
