Kakslauttanen is a family hotel in Finnish Lapland, 250 kilometres north of The Arctic Circle, a mere stone's throw to the Urho Kekkonen National Park. The surrounding environment is one of the cleanest you'll find anywhere in the world. The water is so pure you can quench your thirst straight from a stream running down the fell or the lake into which it flows. The air is so fresh that you can feel it deep down in your lungs. Up here, winters are cold and summers comfortably warm. All in all, what you'll find here is perfection.

Founder's story

Jussi happened across this site by chance when he ran out of fuel on his way back from a fishing trip up north. With no-one to help he was forced to set up camp and wait out the night. He felt as if a force had brought him here. After leaving he knew that same force would bring him back. Skip forward a couple of decades and here stands Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort (Finland's most Imstagrammed hotel) owned by Jussi himself.
