Hot tubs

We have two hot tubs on site that can be used at any time of the day or night. The water in the pots is natural water that comes from the mountains. After a long journey, it's time to take a look at the hot tub and relax a bit. The pots have lights with sensors so the lights go out automatically and it is easier to see the northern lights if they are present. Bathrobes are provided in the bathrooms and slippers are available in the lobby. 


The fireplace is a fireplace under the roof protected by stone walls. On a cold winter evening, we recommend sitting by the fireplace and warming yourself by the hot fire.
