JAVRI LODGE

The most luxurious boutique lodge in Finland, Javri is the former Presidential Retreat of President Uhro Kekkonen. Located inside the Arctic Circle, it is a haven of peace nestled between the small village of Saariselkä and Finland’s second largest national park. Enjoy the freedom to explore 985 square miles of forest, lakes & rivers by dog sled, snow mobile, snow shoe or cross country skis. There is even a small ski resort if the urge to participate in some alpine skiing manifests itself.
