Of all the fell resorts in Lapland, Saariselkä has the most loyal friends, who return time and time again just as overjoyed at the reunion. There is good reason for this loyalty: Saariselkä combines the services of a bustling event venue and the untouched, spectacular fell nature – providing space for relaxation and revitalisation to prepare for returning to ordinary life. This is exactly what is meant when folk say that Saariselkä is a heavenly place. A myriad of fells, trails, ravines and streams are full of happy, private memories of moments when a holiday really felt like a holiday.

The village of Saariselkä was built as a holiday resort and therefore it is very compact. All the services, hotels and restaurants are close to each other and the distances are short. The other way around this means, that even if you lived in the middle of the village, you are only few steps away from the beautiful nature of Lapland.
