Arctic Tree House in Syväsenvaara, Rovaniemi
In the beginning of January 2019 I had a lovely photoshoot with Dewi, who lives in Australia but is originally from Indonesia. She was staying at the lovely Arctic Tree House in Rovaniemi. This hotel is in Syväsenvaara, very close to where I live. It is next to a small hill and forest, where I often walk in my freetime, so I know a lot of nice places around here.
If you ask me when is the best time to visit Rovaniemi, I would say January or February, when the sun is shining more than in for example December. The light is at many times quite magical, changing from the colours blue to pink and orange. It’s usually quite cold though, between -10 to even -30 celcius degrees. Dewi was such a great model, saying she absolutely loves the cold! First we took some photos inside the hotel room and after that we walked up to the small hill of Syväsenvaara. To find the best spots and best light, you usually have to walk a bit, so I always recommend wearing warm clothes and good shoes.
It was a windy day, which is quite rare in Rovaniemi, but just look at this view and the sunlight! It was worth the walk. I love this light, shining quite low all day. And look how it even turns snow to gold!
I have heard a lot of good things about Arctic Tree House from my clients, who highly recommend the hotel for their great customer service, modern rooms and beautiful surroundings. This is not a sponsored post. The surroundings of this hotel are just special to me as I live close by and I have also been impressed of the hotel itself. I did some photoshoots for the Arctic Tree House last year, pictures of the rooms and their delicious sunday brunch below.
