Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
On the 22nd (Thu), head outdoors with Lake Inari, then see the interesting displays at Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center, and then hike along Juutua Nature Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, hit the slopes at Urho Kekkonen National Park, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saariselka S:t Paulus Chapel.

Before you visit Saariselka, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Leipzig, Germany to Saariselka is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Leipzig to Saariselka. When traveling from Leipzig in October, plan for cooler days and a bit cooler nights in Saariselka: temperatures range from 3°C by day to -2°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to drive to Rovaniemi.
