A comfy spot in the centre of Saariselkä

Santa’s Hotel Riekonlinna offers a range of family rooms, suites and stylish, well appointed family apartments set in the woods behind the main hotel building, only a short walk away. 

If the Northern Lights come out to play, head to the viewing room and dive into a squishy sofa to watch the spectacular show.

The food here has a great reputation, with a buffet breakfast and dinner served in the hotel, including your festive Gala Dinner on your final evening. 

There’s lots to do - playroom for the kids, gym, sauna, a cosy bar with an open fireplace, and a lovely boutique gift shop for souvenirs.

It’s close to the ski slopes and you can also use the hotel’s toboggans if you fancy a go on the longest run in Finland. It’s also right in the centre so it's easy to wander around Saariselkä.

Choose your Santa’s Lapland experience

Both of our Lapland holiday packages include a reindeer ride, sledging with huskies, tobogganing, lots of snowy activities like snow hockey and mini skidoos, and a private visit with Santa.
