The Team

Welcome to the Family

The Jávri family are united by a love for arctic nature and wellness, and a dream-turned-reality to create an environment that enables guests to reconnect with themselves and with their nearest and dearest. We do this through the provision of a luxurious and tranquil wilderness experience, facilitating the most incredible Arctic adventures, and serving the most exquisite food, delivered by one-step-ahead-of-you service.


Juha was born in Saariselkä, and was a hugely respected restaurateur before embarking on “project Jávri”. He is the beating heart of the business, and innovative and motivational in equal measures. Never one to sit on his laurels, he’s always looking to develop something new. With an infectious zest for life, and a twinkle in his eyes, he gets as much from chatting with guests as they do from their Finnish experience. You won’t find greater character, authenticity or passion than in the lodges aspirational owner.


Eglė is Lithuanian and came to Lapland for three months in 2015 – such is her love for the lodge and area, she’s stayed ever since! She’s your first point of contact at Jávri, and you couldn’t have a friendlier or more efficient introduction to the property. Her conference and event planning background probably gave her her passion for attention to detail, but her lovely nature and quest for perfection are clearly embedded in her DNA.
