Tradition Hotel Kultahovi is a traditional, Saami family run hotel which is located on a pristine spot by River Juutua and its rapids in Inari Saami village.

Kultahovi offers two types of accommodation. Our Traditional Hotel has been recently refurbished with historical design, honouring our 80 years of business. Our River Hotel hosts a nature theme and offers superior rooms with own saunas and great views to the rapids from all rooms.

Our restaurant Aanaar, featured in the Nordic White Guide, specialises in local ingredients, especially Lake Inari fish. We also host a Saami-couloured cosy lounge with a wood-burning fire. During the summer season we follow the life of River Juutua fish via our underwater camera and in the winter time the development of Auroras in the sky above via our roof-top camera.  You can enjoy the rapids also from our outdoor patio and our bar specialises in Finnish craft beers and warm and cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks using local produce.

You can also book year-around activities in our area from us, as well as airport and bus transfers. From our doorstep you have direct access to walking trails, ski tracks and snowmobile routes.
