The history of Napapiirin Lahja Oy goes back to 1977. At that time, the current CEO Inga Pokka-Jääskö, was ten years old and started spending a large part of her time in the Arctic Circle. Time was spent among the tourists, at her parents' company. In 1994, Napapiirin Lahja Oy was born when Inga and her husband Marko Jääskö founded their own company with souvenir shops and accommodation services.
Today, Arctic Holiday Services offers accommodation in the center of Rovaniemi and its surroundings. In addition to accommodation, you can find souvenir shops at Rovaniemi Airport, and you may find the owner Marko at the wheel of the company's own taxi!
"Customer service has been my passion since childhood. I love meeting new people and sharing the unforgettable joy of traveling. Changing situations with different people from all around the world makes every day exciting and interesting.
My free time includes walking with my dogs in the nature of Lapland and exploring the world. Also from my own trips I always find a lot of ideas for developing our own operations.
I hope to see you soon in Rovaniemi!"

"The most important thing is the comfort of the customers. The final result is affected by many different factors, which is actually the best part of this job. There isn't just one task, during the day you can work from invoicing to customer service and from decorating to transportations.
Lapland is the perfect place for an adventure in nature, which I also do a lot with my dogs. In addition, motor vehicles are part of my free time activities.
A warm welcome to Lapland!"

"When working in the tourism industry, every day is different and the industry is constantly evolving. It's wonderful to be able to develop new opportunities and meet people from all over the world. Travelling and tourism industry is my passion in its versatility, both in work life and in my free time.
As a counterweight to the bustle of tourism, my favorite hobby is knitting. Or you can also find me in the forest enjoying the peace of nature.
Let's smile when meeting!"
