100km north of the Arctic Circle, the quiet village of Luosto is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, set close to a National Park. With good possibilities for both downhill and cross-country skiing and all other snow activities, the area is famous for its logwood buildings, built in a traditional way. We have had a long acquaintance with Luosto, running northern lights trips for over 15 years and we highly recommend Hotel Aurora.
Situated at the foot of a fell in the heart of Luosto, Hotel Aurora offers an excellent base for viewing the northern lights as all bedroom windows face north. The furnishings are modern yet offer a traditional touch and of the 30 rooms, 14 have fireplaces. Each spacious room has en suite facilities and boasts a sauna, perfect for two, in the bathroom.
The hotel lobby and bar with its cosy fireplace, provides the perfect place to sit and relax while the restaurant serves traditional cuisine, prepared using local ingredients on the lave stone grill in the open kitchen.
A host of winter activities are available during your stay from dog sledding to snowshoeing and downhill skiing is available with 7 slopes and 3 lifts located nearby. As an added bonus each guest will be given an Aurora Alarm during their stay; a mobile phone system, whereby should the northern lights appear during the late night then you will be alerted of their presence.
