Welcome to Lapland, where houses are built around saunas! Lapland is an arctic region where freezing temperatures often hit below zero, therefore saunas are essential to keep everyone warm. But besides saunas, Finland’s winter wonderland is also the home of Santa Claus. He hails from Korvantunturi Fell which is also called Ear Fell due to its similarity to the shape of an elf’s ear. You can send your letters and meet Santa in his official hometown, Rovaniemi. Situated close to Arctic Circle, you have a chance to see Aurora Borealis or Midnight Sun if you visit at the right time. If you want something that is more than a ski holiday, you can come to Lapland and try out new experiences. Plus, you can opt to stay in yurts for an even more exciting holiday. Scroll down to see the best yurts in Lapland, Finland.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on June 01, 2024.

2. Rustic yurt in a husky farm in Ivalo

The campsite is on a husky farm on a slope accessible by driving up a forest road. All the yurts are Mongolian-inspired and the space is warmed by a central woodstove so guests can sleep comfortably in the bunk bed and eat meals on the small table.

Note that the yurt doesn’t have a water or power supply. You must draw your water from a nearby well. If you need to use the bathroom, beside the woodstove is a sauna or you can walk 20 m (65.5 ft) to a dry toilet. To relax, you can spend your time exploring the area or wait to see Aurora Borealis at night.
