Step off the beaten path and head to Urho Kekkonen National Park and Inari Reindeerfarm. Get out of town with these interesting Saariselka side-trips: Inari (Siida & Saint Tryphon Pechenga Orthodox Church). On the 7th (Tue), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort.

Plan my day in Saariselka using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Saariselka is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time to Eastern European Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from London in January, with highs in Saariselka at -11°C and lows at -20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel to Salla.
