Offering the most exclusive accommodation in Finnish Lapland, Octola is one of a kind for discerning travellers. Founder Janne Honkanen spent his time restoring lodges and hotels in Lapland before deciding nothing quite matched up to his expectations, and so built his own. Its sublime location puts guests at one with nature, while being able to witness the Northern Lights 200+ days a year and enjoying a plethora of activities including husky sled rides and ice skating. 

The property itself can be booked in its entirety – accommodating up to 30 people - or guests can opt to hire a wing, villa or the exclusive glass igloo. Facilities include a private spa with gym and sauna, pool, hot tub and so much more. We recommend rounding up the entire family for a Christmas getaway like no other, and with 24-hour concierge service, a private butler and personal chefs you really won’t want for anything.
