Our approach to Experience with confidence


Arctic TreeHouse Hotel has always been prioritizing the health and wellbeing of our guests & and our team with safe environment, exemplary standards of service, housekeeping, and care for the Arctic nature in mind.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have enhanced our existing standards to a new level across all aspects of our hotel operations.

The changes we have implemented are based on the guidance we have received from WHO, Finnish Government, and the National Health Service, supported by industry specific advice from Visit Finland and MaRa. We are also consulting Lapland Central Hospital for the latest instructions for the area.

We are happy to confirm that we have complied with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the hotel premises & environment around. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance and advice, we will be reviewing and immediately updating our internal operating practices and protocols.

As we are managing a Public Health issue, we kindly expect the full support and co-operation of all our friends – our guests, our team, and our business partners. Only through our collective efforts can we successfully prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other safe and healthy.

We deeply appreciate and respect your peace and quiet, therefore Arctic TreeHouse Hotel is and will remain a very private location.

Only our guests, member of our team or pre-authorized partners will be allowed to be present on the property.

With only 60 Suites, each designed with private entry, autonomous AC, and water supply and all of which are set on the beautiful nature of Syväsenvaara hill in Rovaniemi, we are ideally suited to let you to enjoy the Arctic view and feel safely.
