"We do evertyhing, but we do not fly to the moon - yet." - Köpi Pietikäinen
Our grandparents Eini and Hannes Pietikäinen started the business with a small camping area along the Muonio river. The business was named according the river and its most common fish grayling. Harri is grayling in finnish and niva means a strong flow of the water in river.
Nowadays family Pietikäinen owns Hotel Harriniva, Hotel Jeris, Fell Center Galdotieva, Polar Flight, Torassieppi reindeer farm and cabin village. These five destinations contains hotels, cabins, camping areas, Winter Village, Aurora Glamping, reindeer farm, world's biggest arctic sleddog center and different kind of activities (safaris) in Lapland.
Our greatest pleasure is to introduce you to the unique nature and fascinating phenomenon in Lapland. We love to offer once in a lifetime experiences to our guests with over 40 years experience ‘Best in Wilderness since 1973’.
Our whole family is involved in the business, so you might meet Köpi, Maria, Niina, Jouni, Jussi, Antti or Kalle during your holiday here in Harriniva.
