Frontier atmosphere and Sámi heritage in our most northerly resort
At a glance
- Good chance of seeing Northern Lights
- Superb for cross-country skiing
- Winter park areas (tobogganing, ice skating and snow tubing)
Located in the wild mystical north of Lapland, close to Russia and just a few hours from the Arctic Ocean, Saariselkä is an exceptionally friendly uncommercialised resort with a unique frontier atmosphere.
With magnificent Arctic wilderness scenery just on the doorstep, it makes an ideal resort for an all-round winter wonderland adventure.
The skies are often a deep hue of pink and purple, the pine trees heavily laden with snow, and being so far north there is a good possibility of seeing the Northern Lights too. Here you are deep in Sámi country, the colourful native people of Lapland, many of whom work in the resort and have their own reindeer herds in forests nearby.
Saariselkä is renowned for its excellent cross-country ski trails in the adjoining national park.
For a really memorable experience sleep under the magical night sky in a cosy thermal glass igloo.
