Your Board Basis

The 100-year-old timber log walls of the hotel's stylish new restaurant Aitta tell dozens of historical stories. The hotel wishes to cherish the authentic tradition of old Apukka and that’s how the concept of their Aitta Restaurant was born.

The restaurant serves up delicious Nordic cuisine with modern twist and uses locally-sourced and tasty ingredients. Breakfast is continental, while the lunch and dinner is served in a buffet style. In the heart of the restaurant sits a huge stone fireplace with an oven, where indulgent buns and stews are created daily. High windows give amazing views out to the lake throughout the seasons, allowing for a truly special dining experience.

Please note: some dining outlets/menu items and premium, branded and international drinks may not be included and may incur a surcharge payable locally.  Meals, snacks and drinks may be available at selected times only

Your Time

After a long day of exploring, there is no better feeling than stepping into a hot sauna for an indulgent bit of pampering. In addition to the sauna, the hotel boasts a range of seasonal excursions which can be booked on site, including reindeer farm visits!

Optional Stopover in Helsinki

You may choose to extend your trip by adding a 1-night stopover at the Original Sokos Hotel Presidentti 4*. Here, guests will be accommodated in a Standard Room on a Bed and Breakfast Board Basis.

Please Note:
 Choosing this stopover means an additional 2-night stay will be added on top of your break in Rovaniemi. While the first night will be spent at the Original Sokos Hotel Presidentti 4*, the second night will be spent onboard a night train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi. This train will take approx. 12 hours and you will have a Private Compartment to sleep in while on a Room Only board basis. Tickets for this train will be sent in advance with the travel documents for this offer. The train will leave Helsinki around 6 or 9 pm and will arrive in Rovaniemi the next day (these times are subject to change). Children travelling will share the compartment with their parents. They will also have to share a bed with their parents.

Finland's capital is an eclectic mix of East and West, set on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. A neo-classical gem with an art nouveau quarter, laced with Alvar Aalto's spectacular modern architecture. Discover smart pavement cafés on Esplanade, gourmet restaurants at a fraction of London prices, and concerts and ballet at Finlandia Hall.

Visit the squares and cathedrals that make up the older aspects of this city, while making sure not to miss out on the legendary contemporary design scene. The city's gourmet side is also flourishing, with new gastro eateries offering locally sourced tasting menus popping up at dizzying speed. Discover this city's quirky charm during your stay and fall in love with the style of life that so many have fallen in love with during their travels.

Entry Requirements 

You must ensure you have a valid passport to travel on.
