Foxfires is British husband and Polish wife team Paul and Aggie and our Parson Russell Terrier, Gooseberry.

We had been living and working in London for nearly 15 years. Aggie, a global technology project manager in the meetings & events sector and Paul a civil engineer always spent our holiday time travelling the world. We love to travel and experience new things. We were growing restless and a little jaded with London life. We have been looking around the world at opportunities but we have always been drawn back to Scandinavia.
When we arrived in Levi for a holiday we fell in love immediately. We knew we had to find a way to be here in Lapland under the Northern Lights permanently. It felt like home. In 2018 we took the big decision to sell up, pack the car and start a new life here in the Arctic.

We created Foxfires to offer visitors welcoming, private experiences that will create memories that last a lifetime. Our mini boutique hotel provides guests with luxurious and intimate rooms uniquely curated by us and of course our sumptuous breakfast. We also offer visitors to Lapland the chance to sample our magical Arctic Spa, a place to find peace and quiet to relax and unwind in our traditional Finnish wood burning sauna and outdoor wooden hot tub enjoying the beauty of Lapland that surrounds.
