Besides accommodation, the purpose of Hetan Majatalo has always been to share the genuine, cosy atmosphere of Lapland to the traveller. You can spend your time in Lapland outside enjoying the nature or inside with these facilities.
The lobby of Hetan Majatalo is a commodious place to spend time. The lobby is divided by a fireplace. It is a great place to meet people, watch television, take a drink, read, play games or just spend some time.This is a place where the guests and the host family meet daily to share thoughts.
There is a television, dvd-player, some board games, aquarium, piano, fire place, public laptop, souvenirs..
We have a spacious and luminous meeting room. It is built in 2000 and has all tools for successful meetings and conferences, from an overhead projector to the Internet connection.
A very peaceful place to spend time indoors is in the mini-library, in the second floor of the hotel’s meeting room. There are many books in different languages, CDs, DVDs, games and toys.
Please notice that sometimes the room may be occupied or is not in use.
We have a gallery with beautiful local art / photos which you can buy and take home as your Lappish souvenir. The exhibition changes every year.
Our well-equipped fitness room is also in our guests use. The fitness room was also built in 2000 along with the expansion of hotel. Fitness room is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (at the moment not in use because of the Covid-19!)
Two saunas are there to warm you up after a day outdoors. Enjoy the hot room as long as you feel comfortable with and then cool off naked in the sheltered balcony with a refreshing cold Lappish beer. In winter you should roll in the snow or at least wash your face with snow! Repeat as many times as you like.
An old wood-heated sauna is in use in summer. Long time ago it was the only place to wash yourself.
Old sauna is a nostalgic place where you can enjoy of the warmth and relax by the fire place.

Majatalo has a warm room indoors for waxing, maintaining and storing skis. From the room you can get straight to the cross-country skiing tracks. If you did not bring skis along with you, you can rent a pair from the hotel.
Kota, the Lapp hut, is located right behind the hotel. Lapp hut represents the original Lappish construction at its very finest. Even in colder weather or with a smaller group, the Lapp hut is a warm and cosy place to spend an evening after an activity-filled day. Coffee, sausage and pancakes get their best taste when made on open fire.
You may have heard of the “magic of Lapland “. Probably the best place to experience it is in kota.
Near the Lapp hut there is another fire place where you can fry sausage or grill something else out side in summer time.
