Amazing room, amazing staff . Had a great time here. Many activities to book and enjoy. The room was extremely clean. The best thing is the attention the staff gives you. The gentleman who owns the location and takes you Aurora hunting goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Magical

We are having an adventure of a lifetime ! Rooms are elegantly done, cozy and unique with the glass windows in front of your bed so you can see the beauty all around you. The food is delicious, just discovered Finnish gin made of rye! The adventures are unique and once in a lifetime experience. From reindeer sleighing to chasing the aurora lights, snowmobiling and snowshoeing all is a winter wonderland of clean pure air and amazing scenery!

We had an outstanding experience at the resort. The personal service was exceptional, everyone was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The room was very comfortable and the various activities offered by the resort made our stay diverse. The food at the resort was delicious. The people at the resort were all very nice and we felt a pleasant atmosphere and good energy. We highly recommend this resort to anyone and we will definitely stay there again.

Lot of missing details for the price of the room.
No concierge service, no room service, no TV " as the northern lights are not seen everyday during their periods", no phone and no bottle of waters in the room...
The menu suggested is very restricted.
A thing that I really didn't appreciate during the dinner; the water is paying when it comes from a natural source for free.
Basically, you pay only for the view.
The design of the resort is amazing, from reception to the Igloos.
The owners manage their own business, welcoming and customers-oriented.
In my opinion, it is very expensive for what you get.
What should be reviewed :
* Complimentary shuttle bus from airport to hotel, complimentary minibar, a phone and TV in each room.
* A 24/7 room service as the hotel is far from any commodities, the restaurant menu must be diversified.
* Concierge Service

The resort is a very nice place, really a pity that it doesn't have all the necessities of the resorts of the same standards, hope that will change.

After 6 days in Finland, I can say with conviction that this was the best part of our trip! The igloos are beautifully done with unparalleled views and the coziest ambiance.
We were greeted by Nina as soon as we arrived. She’s like sunshine in a person, always wearing a smile at any time of the day and always around to help out for the smallest of things! Both Nina and Pasi seem to be around from breakfast to dinner and beyond!

Aurora Queen is clearly their passion, their baby and they ensure that every traveler has the best experience.

The food is 10/10, even though we’re vegetarians and the options are pretty limited, the chef was kind enough to whip up a dish or two off the menu for us.
The waitresses are extremely warm and welcoming and always help out with suggestions and tips.
The only thing I missed here was a sauna.
The guided tours are a must, we chased the northern lights and were lucky enough to actually see them!
If I were to come back to Finland, I’d definitely without a doubt find myself staying at the Aurora Queen resort.

First, I want to thank one of the owners, Nina for helping me out with our reservations. There was a screw up that was 100% my fault and Nina took care of my mistake and made it all work.

We stayed for 2 nights. I would recommend that you stay at least 3 nights.

There is exquisite attention to detail in every area of the Aurora Queen. The rooms are amazing; the beds scrumptious, the linens perfect, the bathroom awesome and the view from the bed is unreal. The northern lights put on a spectacular show for us.

The dining room has delicious food but a limited menu that doesn't change. Good wine selection and Kusmi tea. The breakfast buffet was fine.

We rented cross country skis in town and were able to walk to beautifully groomed trails right from the AQ. It is a 10 minute drive to town. We had rented a car and had no problems finding the AQ or driving back to the airport.

I will start this review with something that may seem arrogant, however it is not. I have been to all 7 continents and almost 80 countries across the globe. I mention that ONLY as a frame of reference for this review. The Aurora Queen is one of the very best experiences I have ever had. The beauty, peace and tranquility of the geographic location are incredible. The activities available are plentiful and very fun. The food in the restaurant is fantastic. The rooms are clean, spacious and you haven't lived until you have spent the night in a glass igloo. The resort is also new (2-3 years) so everything is in great condition. Everything about the Aurora Queen scores a 10 in my opinion. However their greatest strength, by far, is the quality and sincerity of their service. Nina and Pasi, the owners, are 2 of the kindest and most considerate people I have ever met in the near 80 countries I have visited. I have special needs and they did things to accommodate me that were far beyond the Aurora Queen's advertised services. The entire staff was friendly, kind, genuine and sincere. Guest experience is their towering strength. I score it a 20 on a scale of 1-10. It would be a mistake to visit this part of the world to see the Aurora Borealis and not stay at the Aurora Queen. As a final thought, we did see the Lights 2 of the 4 nights we were there. Run, don't walk, to the Aurora Queen.

Our stay at the Aurora Queen Resort was simply breathtaking. Surrounded by the stunning Lapland jungle, the resort's ambiance was truly captivating. The meticulously designed igloos were not just beautiful but also equipped with all the essentials.
Throughout our stay, the cuisine was a delightful blend of freshness and flavor, infused with genuine care. The team, always courteous and friendly, went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met with comfort and warmth.A special shoutout to Nina and Pasi for organising our trip flawlessly. All the very best and we look forward to seeing you again in future.

Nina, Pasi and their amazing staff at AQ took such good care of us! They treated us like family. From dropping us off at the bus stop when we checked out to accommodating last minute requests for excursions, they always tried to personalize our stay. Food was delicious. Aurora cabins were spacious, gorgeous, and clean.

Their excursions and activities were wonderful as well!

12/10 would recommend.

I have been fortunate to stay in some amazing places as a travel writer and this is one of the best resorts I've ever had the pleasure to visit. Nina, Pasi and their wonderful staff made sure I had the most perfect 50th birthday. From the moment we arrived to the lovely hug as we left they were the perfect hosts. The igloos and sauna suite are cosy, beautiful and classy. The excursions are organised with a minimum of fuss and all personal requests handled with a smile. Lovely touches like a card, gift and bubbles on my big day were so appreciated. There are very few places I would ever go back to because the world is so big but I will be returning to the Aurora Queen Resort and that time cannot come soon enough x
