We stayed in Holiday Club Salla for a week in April 2013. We were in one of the newer cottages/chalets by the hotel. The accommodation was not huge (we were 6), but it was tidy, well equipped and the space was well organised and worked for us - it even had a small sauna.

The staff at the main reception were friendly and helpful.

Sallatunturi is an ideal resort for families as the slopes are kept in good condition and it doesn't get as busy as some of the other resorts in Lapland.

We stayed at the Holiday Club for two nights, but kept coming back to the resort for the skiing, the shop and the food. The rooms themselves are clean, spacious, fitted with all the amenities you could wish for, including a heated cupboard which is great both for wet clothes and just to get your clothes toasty before you go out into the cold. we loved the choice at breakfast, and ate here several times, the portions are huge, the food is tasty and the drinks are great. We enjoyed the spa, which is probably better well-described as a pool and sauna (there is nothing else which would indicate a spa-label to me?!), but as it was quite reasonable priced we didn't mind that.
The big bonus of this place is the location, Salla is out in the middle of nowhere, which is great! It's peaceful, beautiful and ideal for Aurora spotters. And this particular resort is well-located between a reindeer park, the village of Salla, the ski-slopes and other places to go from for activities such as Huskies and snowmobiling (all within minutes walk).

We stayed at the Salla Holiday club in February 2013. It is connected to the ski resort in Salla and has a great many activities for everyone to do. You can ski in and out of your cabin as the resort is 3 minutes from the slopes. The cabin was very nice. We stayed in a two bedroom cabin with a kitchen, living room, sauna and bath area and it was much nicer than any hotel room in the area. There is a store near the amin office and there are two markets in Salla so you can easily purchase food and eat in your cabin. There are also two restaurants at the resort if you would prefer to eat out.
It is a great place.

Room Tip: All of the cabins seemed to be the same and were very nice inside.

We spent a week in Holiday Club Salla's Sallas apartments and had a wonderful time.

Just a few metres from the main black run of the resort, you can ski in / ski out from these apartments but you need to have a reasonable amount of ability to do so though. It is possible to access the apartments via a blue run but you then have to ski down a narrow-ish track or walk down. The road to the apartment from the holiday club's main reception is a little windy and can be fun in snowy conditions but is fine. The walk is more direct and will take around 10 mins.

If you want somewhere closer, the Kelorinne apartments (also run by the Holiday Club) are just off the main front slope.

If you want to go in to Salla itself (Holiday Club Salla is at the ski resort, Sallatunturi), bear in mind that it is 10km away so if you are using taxis plan your trips wisely in order to minimise the costs or alternatively hire a car.

The apartments themselves are generally good with all that you need - including a decent sauna which is welcome after a day on the slopes. The apartment we were in also had a basic computer system and its own wireless internet access, both of which were free to use.

Down the hill from the apartment is a lake with a kota on one side. Grab some logs supplied at your apartment and head down with some sausages for cooking if you fancy doing something a little more different.

We also had a lovely meal at the Holiday Club's Revontuli Hotel which was very nice - though the choice may be a little limited for some.

We would definitely return to both this resort and these apartments in the future.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Salla, Lapland- why spend 2 weeks in Lapland in the summer I hear you cry - so did our friends!!Well if you want a holiday that gets away from it all then Lapland is the place to go - at the end of August, the weather is just starting to turn the trees "Ruska" - which makes for beautiful scenery - especially as there are so many trees - and lots of beautiful lakes to fish, canoe and have fires.We caught a flight to Helsinki 2.5hrs and then a connecting flight to Rovaniemi 1 hr - one thing to remember - if you only have a short time between connecting flights then your luggage will arrive on a later flight - this meant we had no luggage until the next morning- although Finnair were fantastic and delivered the cases to our cabin by taxi, approx 150km away, but just remember to pack some kit to freshen up with.We stayed at Holiday Club Salla - which has its reception at the Hotel Revontuli - there are swimming pool, tennis, badminton, squash and gym facilities on site.Salla, approximately 150km from Rovaniemi, is a Ski resort in the winter, as it is one of the most hilly places in Finland (although we are not talking mountains just steep hills), this makes it ideal for walking. The routes are very well marked along all of the walks that we found, along with distance - so that you can choose walks to suit your fitness level. There are also lots of "kotas" (lappish teepees) and fireplaces with ready chopped wood, axes to cut more and cabins that house outside toilet !! (yes really). This means that you can spend all day walking, having packed some provisions in your rucksack and then stop by a lake etc and grill a sausage on a stick and drink blackpot coffee - as is the Lappish way.Everyone asked what we would fill our time with - but we had no problem with this - I mentioned the walking but over the two weeks we also Fished Canoed on the rapids Swam Played Tennis Sauna ( I think this is compulsory!! apparently there is one sauna for every 3 people in Finland) Pony Trekking Canoed on a lake on the Russian border Visited Rovaniemi Visited the Reindeer ParkRELAXED!!(and of course we did call into Santa Village, Rovaniemi - although we had no kids with us ! but we did buy them some pressies- unfortunately though Santa doesn't take visitors personally until 23rd November)There are lots of organised programmes as well if you don't feel comfortable finding a walking route and going off on your own. You will need sturdy walking boots and pack a few layers as the weather can be tempremental. We were lucky and had temperatures of 13/16 in the first week but this did drop to 7 in the latter part of the second week.The Finnish people are extremely friendly, with a dry sense of humour - proboably form spending most of the year in the semi-darkness and snow from October to May with temps dropping to Minus 30/40 degrees.They live in a unspoilt, clean environment and like to promote this to all visitors - you can walk and drive for miles and only meet reindeer.You will need a car, as things are spread out, and make sure that you don't run low on fuel in case the next petrol station is miles away. (Diesel is extremely cheap - worth considering when you hire your car).We found the amenities ie supermarkets very well stocked although a little more expensive than at home and you will need to buy your wine and spirits from the "Alko" - as supermarkets are restricted on what they can sell - but you will fing one of these in every town - but you can buy beer from them. The evenings are fairly quiet as most places cater for more people in the winter - but you can relax in your cabin with a glass of wine and a book by the fire - when you have been walking all day, then this is about as much as you can manage !!We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday and plan to go back for the snow next time - if you enjoy an outdoor activity type of holiday - with not a lot of people around - just enough to be sociable then go to LAPLAND!!Victoria and Sean
