THE MAGIC OF LAPLAND SINCE 1965
The Lapland Hotels story began with the Olos ski resort, which was opened by Arvo Yliniemi in 1965. There was just one ski lift, a campsite, a café and one man’s passion for skiing. From then on, providing genuine Arctic Lapland experiences has been the family business for generations.
Lapland Hotels has grown into the largest private hotel chain in Finland, and is still owned by the Yliniemi family. Today, our hotel, restaurant and ski services are complemented by a range of experience services, snowmobile and dog sled safaris, trips to see the Northern Lights, scenic biking tours, and in the summer, unforgettable experiences in the land of the midnight sun.
Come and discover your own Lapland experience.
