Our restaurant in Äkäslompolo, Ylläs is famous throughout Lapland for its extensive buffet that never compromises on quality. Our fireplace and the hand-carved log wall from our early years create the restaurant's traditional atmosphere. The restaurant is a landmark in itself – the artefacts hanging on the old logger's wall tell tales of days gone by. The restaurant is also available for catered events. It is a wonderful place to celebrate a wedding, a birthday or a corporate event.
The Seita hotel is just a short stroll away from the centre of Äkäslompolo and it offers a tasty dinner from its buffet for all Ylläs visitors. The buffet is served from 5:00 to 7:00 pm daily during the high season. Call +358 16 569 211 to check the opening hours of the restaurant at other times. Table reservations are recommended. We organise incredibly popular sautéed reindeer evenings every week (usually on Wednesdays). Call to check the time and to reserve a place. We are happy to make arrangements for special diets. Please give advance notice no later than the morning of the day for which reservations are made.
Even though we do not offer a separate lunch, we make sure you do not need to go hungry. Feel free to make the sandwiches of your choice and to fill up your own thermos from our extensive breakfast for your trips during the day – all with our blessings. This service is available to all guests whose accomodation package is all-inclusive.
The generous breakfast selection at the Seita hotel truly stands out, Lapland style, from the usual hotel fare. We always offer a hearty option, as well as traditional slow-cooked porridge and a selection of cold cuts. On Sundays, we offer traditional Finnish rice pudding and its accompanying fruit soup garnish. Breakfast always includes fresh home-baked buns or other baked goods.
You can also join us for breakfast even if you are not staying in the Seita Holiday Village. On weekdays, breakfast is served from 8:00 to 10:00 am, and on Saturdays it may be served earlier, from 7:00 to 10:00 am, to leave time for checking out.
