We stayed in the hotel room. Though the place doesn’t really feel like a hotel, more like a big family house. The hotel rooms are fairly big and... More

Wedding in Hetta, Lapland We asked for special arrangements for our special day. These requests were answered and we had a very special stay in Hetan Majatalo with our children and I sincerely can recommend their services to anyone who is on for an authentic and simple enough Lapland experience!

This was a great place to stop after hiking in yllas-pallastunturi park. Dinner is served buffet style with lots of salads one main dish deserts and coffee. A very satisfying experience to have real hearty food after many days in the woods.

We really liked this family run hotel. When we asked about the other buildings in the complex, we learned that many generations of this family are or have been a part of its history. That tradition shows in everything you see here. From my first email contact with Tiina to checkout, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms and activities... More

This family-run hotel is far from a five star hotel but it deserves five stars in the category of small family-owned hotels. Actually it is the oldest family company in tourism in Lapland. It has been open since 1924 and it is in the 4th generation. The hotel is situated in the center of Hetta, the main village of Enontekiö,... More
