Saariselka

— 4 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gold Prospector Museum and Church of Sodankyla. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Pyha-Nattanen Fell. Step out of Saariselka to go to Kittila and see Taatsin seita, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Saariselka Ski & Sport Resort, fly down the slopes at Urho Kekkonen National Park, find something for the whole family at Angry Birds Activity Park, and hike along Ruijanpolku Trail.
