The holiday of a lifetime, Snow! Santa, Huskies, reindeer.... Gielas section of the hotel a must. Rooms were clean, new, and our bathroom wonderful and had a sauna. Took my 8 year old and 9 year old on a winter wonderland holiday, we hail from sunny South Africa, and wanted guaranteed snow, and snow we got. I have surely given... More

This isnt just a review of the Tunturi Hotel but also of Santas Lapland. If you have young children and your weighing up whether to go to Lapland, stop thinking and do it, you wont regret it. The whole trip was amazing from the Easy Jet crew singing and dancing in the aisles to the Elves dancing on the road... More

We had a super time in Lapland, where the fun started on the plane by the Easy Jet staff. My husband couldn't believe it was Easy Jet and thought all staff should be this up beat and engaging on all their flights. The coach transfer from the airport to the resort was easy and of course, included Christmas songs, the... More

We stayed in the Gielas Wing on the 3 day option in early December through Santa's Lapland. Whilst the experience of being in Lapland was fantastic as we all love snow and the activities were really enjoyable, the holiday was not ideal. Firstly the flight to Lapland. The plane circled over Ivalo airport for an hour while they cleared the... More

Hotel was good, centrally located, great bar and good sized rooms with a sauna. We stayed one night here as an interim stop before moving onto Kakslauttanen Resort which we absolutely loved as it had cabins

We stayed in the Gielas wing for 5 nights from 24th to 29th December and couldn't have asked for a more magical time. We booked through Thomsons and the Christmas atmosphere began on the flight with the cabin crew handing each child an activity pack, colouring competition and the children singing Christmas songs through the planes phone. We landed at... More

We booked the SantaDays experience through Colchester Travel from 17th to 21st of December. The holiday was fantastic - so much so that our 7-year old son Henry cried on the last night because he didn't want to go home - in his own words " I miss Dusty and Scribbles (the elves) and have had too much fun!" We... More

We stayed in the Gielas wing in November as part of the Santa's Lapland trip. Room was excellent with everything you could need. Fantastic access to the toboggan run and rest of the town. A supermarket is a 15 minute walk away. The day at the arctic centre was superb - a truly wonderful experience. Would recommend both this hotel... More

Just returned from a 3 night trip staying at the Tunturi Hotel in Saariselka. Hotel had everything we needed but was pretty basic. We were a family of four staying in the older part of the hotel and the room was very small. That said the restaurant served excellent food and the buffet breakfast was good. The price we paid...
