As a chef in the restaurant industry for more than thirty years, Esa wants to make the high quality and unique Arctic flavors the main focus of his dishes.

"We use locally sourced ingredients from the untouched Arctic nature. The Reindeer and Elk meat comes from Karesuvanto, the Arctic Char from Lapland's clear mountain lakes, Salmon comes from the Arctic Ocean and our Specialty, the Willow Grouse, has grown in Enontekiö, in the wilderness of Pöyrisjärvi. The berries and Mushrooms used in the portions have been hand picked from the Arctic wilderness."

The food is prepared with Love just for You.

Indulgence for all the senses

Like the food, both exterior and interior designs are inspired by local tradition. The shape of the glass structures is inspired by Lapland’s classic “kota” huts, designed and used by the indigenous Sámi people. The large glass windows of Glass Restaurant provide an unrestricted view of the nature of Lapland. The season-coloured landscape and the northern starry sky create a magical atmosphere in the space.

The Glass Restaurant features music by artists and small domestic producers from the North Calotte region. In addition to Sámi artists, Rovaniemi-based jazz tones and Finnish folk music are included. The playlists have been compiled by pianist Anna Laakso, who lives in Rovaniemi.

Huoneistot ovat upeita ja tyylikkäitä. Kaikki yksityiskohdat on hienosti mietitty. Lasikatto, joka jatkuu katosta lattiaan luo upean vaikutelman kuin olisi osa luontoa. Ikkunat ovat lämmitettäviä, joten jos lunta sataa ja haluaa näkymän auki on se mahdollista kun laittaa ikkunoiden lämmityksen päälle. Maisema on kuin taulu, joka muuttuu sään ja vuorokaudenajan mukaan. Kokonaisuuden kruunaa terassilla oleva suojaisa poreamme. Henkilökunta on ystävällistä ja palvelualtista. Monipuolinen ja herkullinen aamiainen. Kaikenpuolin upea kokemus! Suosittelen!

Amazing resort with a wonderful design and a full glass outdoor view from the ground to the sky at night. They have indoor sauna and a centrally heated unit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have an outdoor hot tub which stays at 40 degrees. A wonderful experience to soak in the hot tub in - 15 degrees temperature. It is walking distance to santa claus village where you can do many types of activities. Definitely worth the money for the experience and you must book very early to secure a slot in this resort.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this hotel! We had a dreamy experience, and we felt so lucky everyday to be there. The included breakfast is AMAZING! Dinner was always fancy and delicious, and the menu is very traditional Lapland cuisine, but they will happily accommodate picky eaters too! Every single hotel employee that we interacted with was wonderful, but our favorite was our server Nathalie! You really can’t go wrong choosing this hotel. Beautiful, clean, and luxurious. Easy communication with the front desk via chat on a tablet in the room. Gorgeous views out the massive windows. So fun to spend an evening in the jacuzzi whether catching snowflakes or star gazing. I just wish we could go back!
