A hint of luxury and a lot of nature
Arctic Skylight Lodge, opening in January 2020, is tucked away in a pictoresque river valley, just a few kilometers outside of Äkäslompolo, a village surrounded by seven fells on the north side of Ylläs. The main building on top of the hill houses our welcoming reception, cozy lounge with a fireplace and the glass walled restaurant connecting the inside with the ancient forest and wild nature outside. Spread out over the hill rolling down to Kukaslompolo are the 10 luxurious glass cabins, offering cinematic views of the river valley and the surrounding nature. At the bottom of the valley, at the end of the sloping path, between a swamp and the river, lays the sauna building with outdoor jacuzzi.
At our lodge we combine modern architecture, wood and glass, with the rough and wild Lappish nature, cool and sleek design with luxurious and cozy furnishings. We value the unspoilt and pure nature of Lapland, and this particular area especially, and we hope you do too. Our goal is to preserve the ancient forest, the swamp and the surrounding area as much as possible, keep nature intact for birds, reindeer and all other wildlife on our piece of land, be as sustainable as possible, without compromizing on your comfort and the little luxuries we want to offer you.
From all our buildings you get the chance to enjoy the beauty of Lappish nature throughout the seasons. Whether you visit us in the middle of winter to enjoy the northern lights from your luxurious bed in one of the glass cabins, during summer to bathe by the river in the midsummer sun, during autumn to roam the colorful forests foraging, or because you want to go on a culinary adventure with us, we are a place where you can reconnect with nature and enjoy it with all your senses.
We at Arctc Skylight Lodge want you to experience the best Lapland has to offer: clean, unspoilt nature, peaceful and serene surroundings, eco-friendly, yet luxurious accommodation, as well as local, seasonal and wild tastes of Lapland.
