Pearl of Lapland


Restaurant Petronella has been cherishing the legacy of Petronella, the beautiful and mysterious adventurer, at Saariselkä since 1989. The founder of Petronella, Saara Mehtäjärvi, was determined to create a high class restaurant offering quality food and a relaxed atmosphere, added with a touch of magic with which the golden haired beauty had charmed the whole of Lapland half a century ago. Some memories last forever.
