Being Scandinavian territory you don’t have to worry too much about how much snow there’ll be in Saariselkä. Have a look at the snow history and snow conditions pages to see what we mean. Be prepared because it’s cold here in the winter! We’re talking hats, gloves, thermals, hand warmers, the works – ask us about snowsuit hire to save time, money and baggage allowance when sorting out the packing. The locals do an excellent job of making sure there are lots of places to warm up throughout the day, from cosy restaurants to outdoor campfires. Although the light can fade out early in the winter, parts of the ski area and cross-country runs are usually very well lit.
This Finnish resort is one with focus on the whole wintery experience and not just the skiing. The small collection of slopes is 1km away from the village with a bus service to get you there. Once there, you’ll find some easy skiing between the trees with options for freestyling, tobogganing and cross-country skiing. There’s a bunch of stuff to get involved off the slopes from trekking and snowshoeing to husky rides, ice fishing and visits to Santa.
Have your flights, transfers and accommodation sorted all in one or just book the accommodation with us and your travel plans can be up to you.
