Welcome to

Pinetree lodge

Särkimukka is a very small village by the Lainio River, 150 km North of the Arctic Circle. The village has 20 times more dogs than people. Join us in the middle of the Taiga forests!

Pinetree Lodge is situated beside a beautiful lake, Saarijärvi, in the middle of a rich forest. Every afternoon we heat up the sauna. After activities you can relax, warm up, and enjoy the beautiful view. Before or after dinner, join us in the Brown Bear Bar for a locally brewed beer or a cloudberry sour. In our restaurant, join us for a delicious meal made from locally sourced food from Lapland. We offer the same amenities as a hotel, but in a family atmosphere.



Guest Rooms

We have 17 double rooms with en suite facilities. They are perfect for resting after a wonderful day outside. Enjoy the simple, comfortable Nordic design. 

Northern Lights Apartment

Our Northern Light Apartment is perfect for families (4 adults + 2 kids). Two double bedrooms with large windows facing the North, perfect for catching a glimpse of the North Lights from bed. The apartment also has a living room with a fold out bed and a spacious bathroom.


We have three cabins that comfortably home 2-4 people. There is one private bedroom with double bed and a fold out bed in the living area. With private bathroom and open fireplace, it is the perfect hideaway for couples after a day of adventure. 

Arctic Living Apartments

Our 6 Arctic Living Apartments has two private bedrooms with double beds and a sofa bed in the living area (4 adults + 2 kids). Each apartment has its own terrace facing the lake, open kitchen and living room with fireplace. Private bathroom and sauna.

Restaurant & Lounge

In the main building, the restaurant is where you can find breakfast, lunch and dinner. We always use delicious locally sourced food to give you a taste of all Lapland has to offer. Try reindeer or moose with our modern takes on traditional Swedish food.

Brown Bear Bar

Join us in the cozy Brown Bear Bar for a Lapland brewed beer or a cloudberry cocktail. We bring the flavors of Lapland to you! And if you are feeling brave, grab the microphone for a few songs on karaoke night!

Sauna & Relax

Melt away your everyday stress in our electric sauna in our main lodge. Or treat yourself to our traditional sauna by the lake for total relaxation. There is even a Jacuzzi you can spot northern lights from if you are lucky!

Aurora Hideaways

Spend the night in our Aurora Hideaway tucked into a clearing, just a 10 minute walk from the lodge. While it's simple, it is the perfect spot to cuddle up with someone special and watch the Northern Lights.

Wilderness Cabin

Escape every day life in our traditional fishing and hunting cabin. While very cozy, it does not have electricity or running water. The cabin is heated by a fireplace and has an traditional wood fired sauna for relaxing after a day on the trail.

Wooden "Kåta"

Beautifully located on the island in lake Saarijärvi is our wooden "kåta" where we offer weekly pizza nights during the summer and also the possibility to book it for private meals for up to 30 guests.

Husky Kennel

With over 150 dogs, the husky camp is impressive to see. Meet your team before your tour or stop by just to say hello. Once you meet our dogs, it will be hard to stay away. Give them a cuddle and enjoy their playful personalities!

Whether you forgot something at home or you want something to remember this vacation forever, we have you covered. We have a large selection of items to choose from.
