E33***72We went in winter and it has such a great Christmas vibe. Santa Claus office is as expected quite touristy with long queue of people waiting to see Santa Claus himself - photos are expensive though (EUR45 a print). Kids would definitely love this place. Remember to get the certificate showing you’ve cross the arctic circle line!

33K世界环游记Kemi icebreaker. Icebreaking trip on the Arctic Circle
The icebreaker Sunpu, founded in 1960, is now not used by the scientific expedition team. It is now used by tourists to experience sightseeing. The experience of the icebreaker traveling on the Arctic Circle is really unforgettable for a lifetime. You must come to Kemi to experience Rovaniemi Icebreaker. The whole trip is about 4 hours. It is best to participate in the morning and participate in the afternoon. It may be darker when you return. Be sure to feel the moment when the ice breaks in the bow of the ship.
恰似您的温柔In the middle of the Finnish night in December, the gorgeous light green light curtain above the treetops danced in the night sky with electromagnetic particles like a silky light silk leaping, filling the entire night sky, giving people a dreamlike feeling. The church in the northern lights is sacred and sacred. solemn.

E33***72It’s not the usual boring touristy zoo - highly recommended to check out this wildlife safari with arctic animals. You wouldn’t even see a zookeeper in sight. A totally different feel in winter with the snow! Watch polar bear, arctic fox and reindeers in action. Can easily spend about 2-3hours here. Just a short 45mins bus ride from Rovaniemi.

This National park was like a dream, it was a breathtakingly beautiful once in a lifetime experience!
absolutely gorgeous place! Dress warm!
The Christmas before the Pandemic, we decided to spend our Christmas in the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi in Lapland, Finland. This is where Santa Claus spends his time to take care of his mission in life and spread the message of love and goodwill and the Christmas Spirit across the globe.
This can be considered the most memorable trip, enduring the minus 30 degrees temperatures and chasing after the Northern Lights or Aurora in harsh conditions. We had many unique experiences during this trip, riding a horse, riding a reindeer, husky dog sledding even though the daylight is only 2 hours. Most activities were done in the dark. We even got to ride snowmobile on frozen fjord and catch the King Crab for dinner. The only setback, we had no luck during the whole trip to even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Hence, for the last ditch, we were driven to the coastal area in the evening and waited till 3am to try to catch this wonderful Aurora before our return flight to Singapore in the morning. Sadly, still no sign of the Northern Lights and we left the Lapland with a heavy heart. We will be back!!!
Saariselkä Inn's reception and breakfast had moved from the pub to a separate building next door, which was a real upgrade to the place and serviceNice accomodation, friendly staff, the room was clean and breakfast was nice. The accomodation is in the middle of the main street of saariselka.Value for money. Very friendly concierge. Very good bathroom shower. The pub occasionally hosts events such as karaoke, bingo, and live music performances. Guests can enjoy discounts on activities such as safaris with snowmobiles, quad bikes and dog trains. The 1 km Saariselkä Ski Centre offers downhill slopes and cross-country ski trails.
After a day of activities in the winter, guests can relax in the sauna together at night. The local bus stop is 50 metres from Saariselkä Inn Majatalo Panimo, while Ivalo airport is a 30-minute drive away.
Couples love the location the most—they give a score of 9.1 for a two-person trip.
We spent 2 magical xmasy nights in this place on 21 and 22 dec and it was the best value for money stay you can find in this area. It has the best location.... we walked 15min to the most beautiful sleighing hill and had so much fun, and the most beautiful church in the world that looks out to all the winter snowy trees. There is only one main road that is fully covered in snow. A few restaurants, with 3 charming souvenir stores and a big supermarket all within 5 to 10min walk. Also the 3 hours bus ride to Santa claus Village in rovaniemi.... the bus stop stops just in front of this inn. So it is the perfect choice. Just book this place. Cozy little room and they have a free sauna just next door. I love staying here. Windows look out to a snowy postcard view and the restaurant area in this place is so wooden and xmasy Location is spot on, so near to everything. Accommodation is basic as expected which is what I was after. Staff were excellent
The rooms are functional - few frills, but they are well appointed with tv (though we never switched it on), fridge and kettle. And they are comfortable, with lots of space. You are situated bang in the middle of Saariselkä, which is really practical, and there are a number of decent restaurants to choose from close by. The best thing of all is the price - Lapland hotels and accommodation on the whole are extortionate; not so the Saariselkä Inn, which was pleasantly affordable. Highly recommended.Warm, clean perfect to get our heads down after a long days traveWarmth of the room, friendly staff, restaurant in the day was fantastic
We really appreciated the friendly welcome and concern that we were happy. The large areas and dining room were a plus! The convenience of the airport bus was a plus as well. And the sauna in the room was a wonderful extra! The whole experience was well beyond what we expected. This is really a 5 star hotel!!!Sauna experience beyond incredible: private sauna in the bathroom and (icy but doable) stream just behind the room, where you can dive in the middle of the forest. Staff was super friendly: we checked in late when the restaurant was closed but they allowed us to get some meal anyway. Best breakfast I've had after 2 weeks road tripping in Scandinavia"Excellent suiteroom with sauna and icehole for swimming just 30 m from door! Friendly service and wonderful restaurant 😋🍾
