Galdotieva is located right on the shore of Lake Palojärvi. The village of Palojärvi is an old Sámi village where traditional reindeer herding has is practiced to this day. The location is a paradise for an outdoor person, where in the summer there is a possibility to hike in the fells, do some fishing, go canoeing and do trips with mountain bikes. Autumn hiking guarantees you the chance to admire “ruska”, the colourful Autumn Colours of vivid red, orange and yellow as the nature prepares for the winter. Don’t forget the winter when you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing trips, ice fishing, the amazing Northern Lights and the silence of the Polar Night by the campfire. We also arrange tailor-made snowmobile and husky sledge safaris for groups.

You can book accommodations in Galdotieva directly via phone.
