Saariselkä is a holiday paradise with its snowy fells. The view is straight out of a movie set. You can find the most awe-inspiring northern experience on our unique safaris and hotels in the middle of everything.

Safaris are full of unforgettable holiday moments. On a dog sleigh, you get to experience the life of Arctic huskies as the sleighs slide on narrow snowy paths. The guide will tell you about the life of the dogs and how they are trained.

Your second safari takes you through open fells and Arctic valleys on a snowmobile. The midpoint of the trip is a wilderness lake, where we will stop to ice-fish lunch for everyone. At the same time, you can go on a snowshoe hike to listen to the silence of the nature. And don't worry if your catch of the day is small - we have reserved hot soup for lunch.

After the safari, you have plenty of time for a self-guided tour of the village, or why not hunt for the Northern Lights?

Lapland Hotels Riekonlinna is located in the middle of Saariselkä's Lapland-spirited village. It has the region's most versatile accommodation alternatives - from basic rooms to apartments with saunas.
