About Santa Resort - Saariselka
Distance from nearest airport [IVALO] - 25 minutes.
The most northerly resort in Finland you are at the very edge of a vast wilderness of snow-clad forests and moors, extending far across the nearby border with Russia. It may be hundreds of kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, but this very attractive small resort's hotels and tourist facilities offer a warm hospitality that is in marked contrast to the frozen landscapes. Among Saariselkä's attractions are a popular indoor hotel spa, tempting restaurants, vast toboggan slope and plenty of skiing.
