The Lapland Setting

A "fell" is a word from Old Norse "fell" or "fjall" meaning "mountain". In this region, they are high and barren landscape features. They are moor-covered hills that characterize parts of the northern Scandivanian landscapes within the Arctic Circle.

Lapland is the largest and northernmost region of Finland. It boasts much of the most iconic landscapes of the Scandinavian Peninsula and Finland in the Arctic Circle. It is a land of vast mires and forest and fells.

It is common to see the native Sami people here with their iconic reindeer. In Lapland one can experience the midnight sun and the polar night - that is the sun does set in the height of the sun and doesn't rise in the depth of winter.

Lapland is known for its cold and wintry climate and as being the home of Christmas and the home of Santa Claus.

The Levin Iglut Hotel

The Levin Iglut is located next to some of Finland's most pristine wilderness where one can see the rugged landscapes and the northern sky. Being 10 kilometers out of the local town means that the hotel is ideally situated to enjoy the convenience of the town. At the same time, the hotel does not have any of its light pollutions that would obstruct the view of the northern sky.

The hotel service offered at Levin Igulet is comprehensive. The hotel also boasts an onsite restaurant. They offer delicious meals as one enjoys the magnificent fell landscapes 0r the Northern Lights. Their restaurant is called Restaurant Utsu and is built similarly to the igloos. The restaurant's second-floor walls and roof are made entirely of glass.

The hotel also boasts the luxuriously equipped Northern Lights House with its own sauna and a private terrace with a hot tub. Saunas are a must in Finland. The very word "sauna" in English is a loan word from Finish and they are to be found everywhere in the country.
