Our hotel in Karasjok

The town of Karasjok is located in the heart of Norwegian Lapland, 18 km  from the Finnish border, and is a natural and important stopping place on the way to the North Cape. It is home to the indigenous Sami people, whose rich culture and traditions can be experienced by visiting some of their  most important institutions that are located here. Around 90% of  the local population speak Sami.  Originally  hunting and fishing played an important part of daily life and up to today, reindeer herding is still an important activity for the Sami. During autumn and winter grazing you can see around  60 000 reindeer.

The landscape can only be described as remarkable with a fantastic spectrum of colours. Under the right conditions you might even see the Northern Lights dancing over the winter skies.  Karasjok even offers many exciting adventures and activities. Visit a Sami family and listen to the stories of past and present Sami culture. Taste the traditional Sami  reindeer stew, bidos and listen to the fascinating ‘joik’, the Sami chant. Don’t miss a trip up to the mountain plain in winter by ski or on a sled pulled by reindeer or huskies, or on a snowmobile.  Our hotel in Karasjok is the perfect place to stay when exploring this exotic destination.
