Cool coffee break

The modernly elegant Arktikum Café encapsulates arctic design. The large windows of our wide hall bring natural light right to you as you enjoy a fresh cup with a tasty bite.

Our trademark bread is made of surplus bananas from a local Rovaniemi supermarket. It tastes sweet and gives climate change the boot – one reverse step at a time!
