Saariselka, Lapland

Saariselkä is a largish winter sports center high up in Finnish Lapland, some 250 km north of the Arctic Circle and nearly 1000 kilometers away from the southern capital Helsinki. Nestled in a valley, Saariselkä is a compact strip of a village with one gas station, one main supermarket, one liquor store and a slew of hotels, shops and restaurants, but it's quite manageable on foot and located only 30 km away from the town of Ivalo and its airport. The fells of Kaunispää and Iisakkipää are both equipped with ski lifts.

The fells nearby are excellent terrain for cross-country skiing, sledding and hiking.

There's a real community feeling in Saariselka and it's still small enough for everyone to know everyone. It's often called a small family resort which could put some people off - however there's a lot more to it and the nightlife can really kick off with live music most nights and plenty of parties to keep most night owls happy.
