“Wood cabin experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Drove from Nellim to Salla and the journey took us over 6 hours. The lodging is about 20 km from the centre of Salla. We came at the low season and thus, only 2 other cabins were occupied. The lodging is next to the Reindeer Park and is central enough for you to drive to most of the national parks. We were without electricty for most of a day that one time when the storm hit Salla. There was no back-up generator. It was fine as we were out for most of the day. There's an Aurora information centre at the lodging ran by a Dutch man, Bart. For a hour slide show and a framed picture, the info session will set you back EUR17.50 which I personally think is a bit steep as the info presented was collected off the internet. But his pictures of the Aurora were all his work.

Our feeling of being lost in the middle of nowhere soon changed into "This must be a winter fairy tale ...". The friendly staff of this holiday resort were very helpful organizing day trips for us, and - there you find yourself in a sleigh being pulled through the most stunning winter landscape by a reindeer! More speedy but equally thrilling was the skidoo tour to the russian border we did the next day. And not to forget the husky tour with six brave dogs doing all the work for us! If you don't like doing the tours in a group of twelve or more people, ask for a special guide. This requires a surcharge but sure makes all the difference!
During our stay we lived in a comfortable house with a fireplace and a sauna, which we enjoyed in the evenings. Always remember to take your keys with you when you leave the house to refresh yourself in the snow after using the sauna ... Otherwise you can easily find yourself locked out of the house with nothing but your skin to protect you from -20 °C!
Dinner was always a treat, wines were nice, and ever nicer was the cranberry vodka. Enjoy!

About 70 wooden houses on a large area. Not to big to wlak. Ski slopes near by.
Restaurant on the parc.

The only thing missing is a good supermarket.

All other facilities like snow scooter and safaris all available and professional.

Staff = friendly!

We stayed in the cottages on the property of Sallatunturin Tuvat four years on a row, and we loved it all the times. The cottages are very nice and comfortable. They've got everything you need, with a nice sauna, a dry closet, a nice badroom, kitchen, you name it. Though it is small, it has all you need. And the hotel restaurant, the spa and the sky lift at about 200 meter. And at the reception of the hotel you can book al sorts of activities, like husky sledges, ice walking and fishing, snow scooter safaris etcetera. Great fun for people who also want to do something else but skiing. we like to vary a bit during a week in the snow. And about skiing: for a family with younger kids there enough of excitement, for experienced alpine skiers I think it's not much of a challenge. Although there is a black piste. And about the cold: don't worry a bit. Wear enough warm clothes and you'll be fine. Weather and snow conditions were always great when we were there. So don't hesitate and visit Sallaunturin Tuvat for your winter holiday.

Room Tip: Don't book a room, book a cottage!

We stayed there for 3 nights during our new year's holiday. We loved the cottage, with private sauna and fireplace (wood provided). The kitchen is very well equipped: washing powder, kitchen paper, towels included. Very smart the drying machine for clothes. The cottage are really in middle of nowhere: the nearest supermarket is 10 Km away, in the nearby only snow, but it's easy accessible by car. We also made a all day long snowmobile safari on the russian border, which we enjoyed a lot. The only complaint is about wifi connection: the signal was too low to reach our cottage so we had to go out and walk a bit to download the mails!

We booked a winter holiday to Salla with a few friends through a Dutch touroperator. So we didn't really know where we would end up. To our surprise the cottage we were put in was very comfortable. A central living room was connecting a kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a lovely sauna (which we used extensively). We loved spending time here after being out in the cold all day. There is electrical heating but you can also go out and get some wood (for free) to lighten up the fireplace. Concerning doing your own cooking, there is one very small shop in the hotel which is located in the center of the park. It has a bare minimum of goods. There is also a (daily?) bus connection going to the near town center which takes you to a bigger store where you can find anything you need. Concerning restaurants, there is one in the hotel and one at the reception. There's also a nice bar at the foot of the ski resort. You should have the moose burger there (and the lovely pizzas)!
