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 5th (Thu), tour the pleasant surroundings at Ruijanpolku Trail and then wander the wide-open spaces of Saariselka Reindeer Farm. Here are some ideas for day two: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, then get in on the family fun at Angry Birds Activity Park, and then look for gifts at Hippupuoti Gift Shop.
