Family log cabin in Saariselkä 26.12.-1.1.

Family log cabin in Saariselkä 26.12.-1.1.

A holiday in Saariselkä with a husky, snwomobiling and reindeer safaris suitable for children. 

Saariselkä  is the first and the northernmost ski village in Finland. There are a lot of nice log cabin and log cabin apartments like yours, some shops, many restaurants (even an ice restaurant this year)  and special services like the Angry Birds Activity Park indoors and the Holiday In spa. 

As the activities take place a bit outside the village, the service providers pick you up from the cabin and take back there after the activities. We have left one day free for you to choose, what to do. There are several rental shops and illuminated ski tracks. 

Northern lights can be seen quite often at this time. In this area there are northern lights on sky on 3 nights out of 5 but to be able to see them, you need a bright night often meaning also a very cold night. As an aurora activity we have included a reindeer sleigh ride, where you can all sit tight together well covered. 

It will be dark most of the time, there is blueish daylight, no sun shime only from 10am to 2pm so most of the activities take place during this time. In Saariselkä however the slopes as well as ski tracks are illuminated and there are indoors activities so you can take advantage of the whole day. 

Other possible activities: not included

Gold rush event on the 31st of December. The ticket includes entrance to the gold museum, 3-course lunch, a 10-minute husky sleigh ride and gold-panning indoors. Cost of this activity 543,50€ with bu transfers. This can well be left out if you do not want to have too many activities. 

Skiing: ski pass 2/4 days /adult 80€, ski pass/child (7-16yrs!) 2/4 days 48€/day, equipment 36€/day/person

Winterpark (=1,8km slope for tobogganing): 25€/person including 2h of toboggan, ski pass, skating and a snow tube -> it is better you buy the tickets on the day you want to go there

Holiday Club Spa : 64€ for your family
