"We do everything, but we do not fly to the moon - yet." - Köpi Pietikäinen

Harriniva Hotels & Safaris has during its over 40 years historty attracted tens of thousands of visitors in to the wilderness from all over the world. Harriniva is located in the middle of the most amazing nature in Muonio, Lapland. Muonio village is the no ordinary destination with no ordinary local people. We love to be outdoors every day, every time of the year. This place is full of contrasts, our nature is amazing with its phenomenons and wilderness.

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 Harriniva, JerisGaldotieva, 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.
