Jeris Lakeside Resort –
natural beauty and peace by holy lake Jerisjärvi
Considered sacred in indigenous Sámi mythology, lake Jerisjärvi and the surrounding forests and fells instantly put your mind to rest.
Arriving at Jeris Lakeside Resort will make you feel happy, because you’ve found an incredibly beautiful spot for your holiday in Lapland.
Pure nature wherever you look
Only a stone’s throw away from your hotel door, you pass through the gate of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and enter the hiking trails and ski tracks of Finland’s most storied outdoor terrain.
The gentle ascent to the national scenery of Keimiötunturi fell starts from the hotel door. Take deep breaths, as the world’s cleanest air has been measured on the adjacent Sammaltunturi fell.
A frozen lake – your Aurora theatre
In winter, the frozen lake Jerisjärvi is not only amazing for walks and cross-country skiing, but nature’s own arena for Northern Lights shows and the twinkling of millions of stars.
Classic outdoor hub
You’ll stay in a hotel room or a cabin, and all our outdoor activities are available right at the door. Previously owned by the Outdoor Association of Finland, Jeris Lakeside Resort has a history as a cross country skiing hub.
The past is present in the restaurant and downstairs bar, where old wooden skis and memorabilia decorate the walls.
Wellness culture in Arctic Sauna World
We warmly recommend you step into Jeris Arctic Sauna World on the hotel grounds.
Choose your favourite from the five themed saunas and take a dip in lake Jerisjärvi – on the sandy beach in summer or in an ice hole in winter.
