Here, immersed in an extraordinary mountainous setting in the Urho Kekkonen National Park, we find one of the most popular and evocative Nordic destinations in Europe. A unique place in the world, capable of offering various outdoor activities such as skiing and hiking in various forms, whether on foot, by snowmobile or carried by huskies, Saariselkä will surprise and leave you breathless. Furthermore, its proximity to the Arctic Circle, only 260 kilometers, makes it the ideal place to admire one of the natural wonders of our planet, we are obviously talking about the magnificent Northern Lights. Unique show that with its colors and its suggestions will make this experience unique and unrepeatable. The village has about 350 inhabitants belonging to one of the largest Sami communities in Finland, an indigenous population living on ancient local traditions and customs.
