Visitor Reviews of Saariselka
Malcolm from United Kingdom writes:
Saariselka is the smallest of the resorts I have visited in Lapland.
The village is quite compact.
As a cross country skier I enjoyed the variety of tracks, going through woods, across lakes and over fells, although the wind and cold made some of the slopes icy and tricky.
There is a great, steep, looping descent from the top of the fell down to the village.
The tracks also take you out to a gold mine, and the tracks from the hotel with the igloos (I can't remember the name) back to the village give a lovely undulating route with reindeer around to keep you company.
Being further north than the other resorts used by Brits, the sunlight in early January is almost non existent, giving a twilight to ski in, which some may find depressing. but when the sun rises I imagine you get the same beautiful skies that contribute to the magic of the Arctic.
