There are several key characteristics which separate our boutique glamping Yurt District, from other lodging options:
Our Yurt District is a smaller more personalized glamping experience. Yurt District provides for intimate glamping options, while not excluding well sized groups. Our five riverside Yurts accommodate anywhere from 10 to 15 people and the unique HillTop Yurt is ideal for up to two guests. Our smaller size means we can focus on all our customers and make sure your experience is as best as it can be.
Our boutique glamping Yurts are one-of-a-kind and display our unique personality. Yurts are locally, independently owned and each have their own special charm. As with our Yurts, our clients are unique characters and we appeal to guests who shy away from mass tourism and business hotels.
A Mongolian yurt (Ger) is the most flexible and beautiful design of tent made by man to date. Today, more than half of Mongolians live in gers. There are two key components to a yurt; the wooden framework, and its various natural material covers. The Yurt is durable, strong in high winds and it can be heated with a heater placed inside it. By lining the inside with insulation material, it can become a comfortable shelter in winter as well as in summer. Our yurt’s have 5 panels, their diameter is 6 meters and they are manufactured by hand in Mongolia, UlaanBator. The quality is guaranteed by the original Nomad from Gobi Desert.
We have an arctic vibe and a modern spirit. Our décor is modern and local featuring our own version of Scandinavian/Lappish style. We have a rich local vibe, with spirited ambiance to suit our stunning location. Yurt District conveys a strong sense of place and pride in the heritage of our location.
From our lodging options you can choose whether you want to stay in a Yurt in wilderness with amazing forest hill view or our cosy Yurt district next to the Ounasjoki river. If you like your Yurt’s decorations you can buy them to take home with you. As each Yurt has unique decorations, each Yurt has a price list of the items within for your buying pleasure.
