9730 Karasjok
The Karasjok Hotel is located together with the Large Turf Hut, the Inn and the Sámiland Centre on a terrace, a riverbed with lush vegetation - large pine trees, bushes and a ground vegetation of heather. Trails lead from this terrace down to the old Church site, which is situated on the alluvial plain.

The Karasjok Hotel was completed in 1983 and is now the Rica Hotel. The building is characterised by walls made of brown stained horizontal panelling (of varying widths), railings made of rounded, laminated logs and a saddle roof covered with corrugated, enamelled steel plating. All of these features bestow the building with a rustic quality which is harmonious with the pine wooded surroundings.
