Clean, comfortable. Definitely non-fancy. The bathroom floor is heated which is a nice touch. It can be a little cold there. No complaints. Breakfast adequate. Sauna was available. I would stay again.

Hotel Ivalo is surrounded by Northern Lapland's wilderness and the National Park with its numerous rivers, lakes and fells. From Ivalo you can continue on to Northern Norway, the Arctic Ocean and the North Cape, Hammerfest or the Murmansk region of Russia. The activity service Club Nord provide wintertime experiences such as hunting the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), enjoying the Lappish nature driving with snowmobiles, husky dog safaris, reindeer or horse sleigh rides. In the summertime, activities include trekking, fishing, canoeing and even gold panning. A visit to the reindeer farm may be the highlight of your stay or indeed a visit to the Sami Museum Siida and the Northern Lapland Nature Centre.

Hii Bakhan, from the Ivalo airport you've got taxis but also buses to the center of the town ( about 10 kms ) but you've got to check about the hours. If not you've got the taxis or the possibility to rent a car on place.

Yes we did, one day just behind the hotel. The hotel also organises aurora trips (about half an hour by car) to find the best aurora sights. Enjoy...

I have no glass ball to predict the aurora borealis... You definitely need a clear and starry night, but even then... You can find more information on the site of the Finnish Meteorological Institute... More
