Cabin & Apartments - Know before you go


Cabin & apartment Lapland holidays

What to know before you go

If you are travelling with us on a Lapland holiday and staying in a cabin or apartment, then here is our essential guide on what to expect:



General facilities and utilities

  • Our log cabins and apartments are individually owned. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and have been decorated to the owner’s taste.
  • All cabins/apartments come with an equipped kitchen and are either walking distance or a short bus ride away from a well-stocked supermarket. Most have a private sauna, fireplace, dishwasher, washing machine and Finnish drying cupboard. Approximately half our cabins have WIFI. Most cabins have a TV with local channels, some of which are in English. Cabins do not have safes. Christmas trees are not typically provided as standard. Details about individual cabins can be found on the properties’ page on the Inghams website.
  • Final cleaning is included in all stays. Cabins should be left in a tidy condition (bins taken out, dishes washed, linen piled, etc.) Any damages should be reported to the in-resort team. If you lose your key or lock it inside the cabin you will incur a maintenance charge.



  • You may find some items inside your cabin which have been left by previous guests. Provisions are not provided as standard (e.g. soaps, cleaning products, toiletries, food items, tea/coffee etc.) To reduce waste and save costs, you may wish to bring some of these items with you.
  • A limited amount of toilet paper and firewood is provided. Extra can be purchased locally.
  • The tap water in Lapland is safe to drink. It comes straight from the ground and is arguably the purest in the world.


Sleeping arrangements

  • Like most of Europe, beds are typically ‘Austrian Twin’ style – two single beds which can be separated or pushed together. Most cabins have 1-3 twin bedrooms plus ‘extra beds’. ‘Extra beds’ vary by property – typically, they are mattresses or small beds on a mezzanine, or a sofa bed in the living room. It is common in Finland for beds to be made by guests on arrival.


What information you receive in resort

  • Instructions on how to use saunas, fireplaces and appliances can be found either stuck on the wall or in a cabin information book. You will receive tips about recycling, heating, water-use and departure cleaning when you arrive. If you are unsure about anything, please contact your in-resort representative who will be able to assist.


Items you may wish to bring with you

  • Headtorch / torch
  • Reusable shopping bags
  • Reusable water bottles
  • Toiletries and other provisions
  • Hairdryer (if not provided - see individual property pages)
  • Normal loungewear (it might be warmer inside the cabin than you expect!)
