Saariselka

— 2 nights
Outdoor pursuits--ranging from cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and chasing Northern Lights--draw the largest number of tourists to Saariselka.
Change things up with a short trip to Siida - Sami Museum and Nature Center in Inari (about 58 minutes away). Spend the 23rd (Tue) exploring nature at Urho Kekkonen National Park. It doesn't end there: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour and tour the pleasant surroundings at Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort.

To find maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Saariselka online itinerary planner.

Lapland travel guide

Landmarks · Nightlife · Safaris
The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
