Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
Visiting Juutua Nature Trail and Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pielpajarvi Wilderness Church and Reindeer Farm Petri Mattus. Get out of town with these interesting Saariselka side-trips: Inari (Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center, Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church, &more). There's still lots to do: hit the slopes at Urho Kekkonen National Park and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel.
