In 2010, the American magazine Newsweek celebrated Finland as the best country to live in. This piece of news comes easily to our minds while the splendour of the restaurant hall of Lapland Hotel Sky Ounasvaara surrounds us. The atmosphere is magic, pure and simple. The same happens as we listen to children shouting in the dark, while they have fun with on an old bobsleigh among birches and pines. Or when we discover the perfume of snow, the silence, the broad and clear view from the hotel rooftop. The hotel is a majestic parallelepiped in the centre of one of the woods surrounding Rovaniemi. The snowy wood’s night enters the room through the large windows and blends with interiors and fellow guests, creating pop-up superimpositions of images on the glass windows. We savour a Scandinavian meal that gratifies us and confirms our love of Northern Europe, a meal made of local raw materials processed with traditions, imagination and talent. Genuine raw flavours with a cutting-edge twist we would like to experience every time we try a creative menu.
