Santa’s Saariselkä Inn is packed with character and you’ll be sure to get a warm welcome when you walk through the door. The rooms have a cabin-style design and are all situated on the same level, offering a comfortable and cosy atmosphere.

Guests at Saariselkä Inn enjoy the convenience of breakfast in the main building, where a welcoming breakfast room doubles as a bar and restaurant. For dinner, a pleasant 5-minute walk leads to Hotel Tunturi, offering a delightful dining experience in a charming setting.

Just next to the Inn is Pub Panimo - a traditional old-style interior with a fireplace. It serves drinks, including local Finnish beer and also has nightly events.

There are two spacious public saunas for a small charge. They’re heated daily, with separate ones for men and women.

Santa's Holiday Club pool and spa is just across the road which you can use for a small fee.

Santas Laplnd FeeFo star rating
We were a family of 6 aged from 73 to 5. We all had an absolutely fabulous magical and very active time. The clothing we were given was excellent and advice about what inner layers to bring with us meant we were able to stay warm despite temperatures going down to minus 18. Staff were very accessible, helpful and honest. It was all very relaxed with no commercial pressures and seemed very natural enabling us to have lots of fun taking part in snow activities we had never done before.
