About Santa Resort - Hetta
Hetta is a small, quiet village surrounded by miles of forested snowscapes alongside a frozen lake. The vast wilderness expanses of this region have long been traversed by the nomadic Sami tribes, the indigenous local people. Reindeer herding was the traditional way of life in this part of the world and many Sami families are still resident among the local community in Hetta.
Since the village is sleepy and uncommercialised there are no big hotels belonging to international chains that you might find in other Lapland resorts. Instead there is a good choice of attractive, family run hotels and log cabin villages.
Where to stay
The attractive Lomkayla complex overlooks the River Narpistojoki, on the very edge of the village of Hetta. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this tranquil setting.
