En general estuvo muy bien, pero la ausencia de recepción y el tener que hacer check in y check out en el hotel Santa Claus fue un poco inconveniente. Además, tuvimos que reservar dos habitaciones individuales porque las dobles aparecían como todas reservadas, y cuando llegamos vimos que cada una tenía habitación doble. Nos gastamos bastante más dinero del necesario por esto.

Where next?

If you have a vehicle, I'd recommend checking out the national parks in Lapland. I didn't have a vehicle and was unable to do so, since there is no public transportation option available to get to the parks.
