Restaurants Seita and Northern Lights

authentic and home-made food

Our restaurants in Äkäslompolo, Ylläs, are famous throughout Lapland for their extensive buffet that never compromises on quality. In our traditional Seita restaurant we have an open fireplace and a hand-carved log wall from our early years. The restaurant is unique in itself - the artifacts hanging on the old logger's wall tell tales of days gone by.

In Northern Lights Restaurant (built in 2018) we have a fireplace and big windows facing North. There is a good possibility to admire Northern Lights while dining. With the Northern Lights restaurant we got our own tableware, which was designed and manufactured in cooperation with the well-known Lapland ceramics company Pentik.

The restaurants are also available for catered events. Our restaurants are wonderful places to celebrate weddings, birthdays or other events!

appreciate the nature

Our kitchen recycles glass, metal, cardboard and paper as well as biowaste. Due to long distances, biowaste is not generally collected in Lapland, but we have own composters in yard which are used all year round.

Our kitchen uses only meat from Finland and local berries like lingonberries. 

Seita hotel breakfast

The Seita Hotel’s breakfast is extensive and tasty and it is served daily during the high season. Breakfast includes long-stewed porridge, hot dishes, Lapland lingonberry, homemade products like omelette, rolls and buns / pastries. 

You can also join us for breakfast even if you are not staying in the Holiday Resort Seita. Welcome!

Seita hotel lunch

We offer lunch for groups that have made the order in advanced.

Half board guests: Feel free to make the sandwiches of your choice and to fill up your own thermos from our breakfast for your trips during the day - all with our blessings. This service is available only to guests whose accommodation package includes half board.

Seita hotel dinner

Dinner includes several salads, three main courses (meat, fish and vegetable options) with side dishes and a dessert with coffee or tea.

You don't need to make a table reservation, except on Christmas and NY Eve when it is recommended. We organize sauteed reindeer evenings every week (usually on Wednesdays). 

Please notify allergies/special diets in advance.

Smoke sauna

The best you can offer to your guests!

Our traditional smoke sauna is built from over hundred-year-old logs, which we heat if ordered. The gentle warmth of the steam relaxes the body and mind, easing your muscles and setting your thoughts free. In front of the smoke sauna is an ice hole and the water is ice cold round the year.

We set the table in the sauna's comfortable and cozy fireplace room with drinks and delicacies from Lapland as requested for the occasion. The smoke sauna area is covered by our beverage licence, which due to Finnish regulations means that the catering must be agreed upon ahead of time. It takes 6 - 7 hours to heat the smoke sauna, depending on the playful moods of the weather. After three hours of warming up, the stones on the stove glow soft red. When the glow of the coals has faded away, our sauna master takes care of the final touches to make the sauna ready for you. The sauna still needs to be aired out for an hour before it is ready for you to step in its' warmth.

Our sauna master has day off on Saturday and on holidays so please make the reservation for a weekday.

  • Price 285€ + 15€/person (Extra hours 50€ / starting hour)

    The price includes three hours sauna time, towels, a dip in the ice hole, juice and water as a refreshment.  

Hot tub

Our outdoor tub is just outside the sauna and can seat up to 8 people. Enjoy the contrast of the crispy cold air and the warm water while admiring the sky above you. If you are lucky, you may even catch the northern lights blazing across the sky with the stars twinkling around them. Warming up the tub's water takes several hours - especially in the winter, so please reserve well in advance. Sauna near by the lake: here.

  • Price 150€/ heating up (only with smoke sauna)

Lappish Hut

Our yard's pearl is a traditional Lappish hut, which is unique and authentic place to spend weddings and other important celebrations.
The hut itself is already an exquisite experience, but to make your event even more perfect you can end it in our smoke sauna.

Please ask an offer!
