Finnish in Ivalo

The cavernous, gleaming dark-wood dining room at the Hotelli Kultahippu opens to a 120-seat sun terrace overlooking the river in summer. Finnish specialities include creamy salmon soup with house-made rye bread, Inarijärvi whitefish with sour-cream sauce, and reindeer fillet with roast wild mushrooms. The pub and club (11pm to 4am Friday and Saturday) are the main local nightspots.
