  • hi are you providing airport transfer and are you allowing early check-in?

    Hello, There is about 8 kilometres between hotel and airport. Best way to get from airport to hotel is to take Airport express taxi. It will cost 7 EUR / person. Airport taxi is waiting in the airport after the flight and it drives between airport and hotels. You don't have to and you can't book the Airport express taxi in advance. Airport express taxi is a general service here in Rovaniemi, we don't own this service. Normal taxi will cost about 25 EUR. Yes, we allow early check-in (subject to availability).
