Feel free as a bird as you arrive at the hilltop and enter the Arctic Giant. Pause for a moment to admire the glowing starry sky, the shining northern lights, or the healing rays of the morning sun. The Arctic Giant is a mystical world of forest spirits and other magical creatures, located on the high Kivesvaara hill in Paltamo. The Arctic Giant offers memorable accommodation and restaurant services up among the birds. In addition, the Arctic Giant is a popular venue for weddings and parties, and has provided an enjoyable setting for all sorts of celebrations.
The accommodations available on Kivesvaara hill are the original Birdhouse cottages, Bird Nest apartments, Maahisen Majat apartments, Villa Metsänhenki holiday apartments, Luxury Birdhouse, and the Panoramic House.
Restaurant Makuhelmi creates special, unique, high-quality and above all memorable parties and events, serving our guests tasty experiences. They collect their own mushrooms, berries and herbs to use as ingredients in our foods. When it comes to other ingredients such as fish, wild game, and root vegetables, they always favour using local Finnish ingredients, acting in an environmentally friendly manner while respecting sustainable development principles.
For those seeking for an adventure, Arctic Giant offers the possibility of dining in their brand-new goahti, a Lapland-style tent, which is a historical type of hut used by the Sámi people. The food tastes best when it’s self-made, and that is the atmosphere you can find here.
