Reindeer Lodge – Winter

Our idyllic cottage accommodation outside Jukkasjärvi

Reindeer Lodge is totally the way to go for a very pure (and fun!) arctic experience
Zackary, 2017

Start the day by saying goodmorning to a reindeer, and then snuggle up with a warm cup of cocoa after a long day in the snow. Fall asleep to the sound of crackling fire, wake up and see how the northern lights dance in the sky. Come and visit us at Reindeer Lodge and stay in our cabins with grazing reindeer walking next door. Choose between an exciting goahti or an idyllic cottage, or maybe one night in each? Regardless, this small-scale facility offers an ideal base for your winter vacation.

Nestled in the forest and on the banks of the Torne River is Reindeer Lodge, a cozy and sustainable accommodation certified by Nature's Best. Reindeer Lodge is a small-scale, sustainable lodge 5 km outside Jukkasjärvi. We offer accommodation in cottages and glamping tents, all in the Sámi spirit. We keep our reindeer on site over the winter, some males to sled with and some females and calves to feed over the winter. Reindeer Lodge is the perfect place for those looking for accommodation a little outside the city, but still easily accessible for nature-related experiences.
