Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
Take a break from the city and head to Urho Kekkonen National Park and Lake Inari. Get a sense of the local culture at Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center. Explore Saariselka's surroundings by going to Inari (Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church & Inari Reindeer Farm). There's more to do: see the interesting displays at Gold Prospector Museum and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel.

Plan my Saariselka trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Pyhatunturi to Saariselka by car takes about 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in July, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Rovaniemi.
