Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I took our children (age 8 and 5) on a 3 hour reindeer safari, we had an amazing time! We really enjoyed learning lots about the reindeer from the lovely people that led our excursion. The staff were very friendly and actively encouraged us to ask lots of questions. The staff were really happy to chat to us and share their knowledge of the reindeer and the area. We loved feeding the reindeer and earning our reindeer drivers licence on our 5km sleigh ride! We really enjoyed our hot drink, sausage and bun in a fire hut which was a lovely way to warm up! Thank you for a wonderful time and an experience we will never forget!

The trip with the dogs was just great and the two women that were leading our sledges were both great and love their job and dogs.
If you prefer reindeer trips, also possible. Or just with a motor sledge, also done, but with a trailer then (less attractive).

This place has a nice cafe with good selection and friendly staff. There is also a little souvenir shop (which has a lot local products) and little "forest museum". Reindeers are cute and well-kept. I warmly recommend to go to the "reindeer feeding trip", there you can feed the reindeers and hear a lot more information about the reindeers 😊 The tour guide was really nice and a real professional when it comes to the reindeers!

Fun half day with the reindeer safari.Riding your own sledge with the reindeer. Pretty relaxed and easy driving, compared to the huskies. Lars and Teemu were great, very fun to explain everything and very helpful with all info you can wish for. Nice and warm with the provided overall. Recommended for everyone also if you are living in Finland and may think this is just tourist stuff :-)

Went on the three hour reindeer check, was such a wonderful experience, the reindeer's were majestic as was the scenery. The trip was well planned and the guides were knowledgeable and just added to the wonderful trip.
Was a family gathering of 9 adults and 4 children (10, 4, 3 and 1).
Would recommend to all who are visiting Salla.

We were staying in Salla Tunturin Tuvat for 4 days. We booked this with Voigt Travel (perfect agency btw !!!), so most of the activities at the Reindeer Park were included. We had the Reindeer Park tour, Husky farm visit, canoeing day and midnight hike. All with the same guide, who was brilliant in our opinion. Because we were doing this in summer period, almost everything was "private" - just the four of us (2 adults, and two sons of age 12 and 15) + the guide. Those are all experiences we will never forget, none of us. Here you can really feel the Lapland way of life, living together with the nature around you. We had so much good vibes here, that it took us days to get used to our stupid live in Belgium once we were back … Only remark : you have to like animals / dogs to enjoy the husky farm. If you hate dogs, don't go there. If you like them : they will like you too !!

Staying in Salla Tunturin Tuvat, we spent a lot of time in this park. We enjoyed full day activities, all good, enjoyable and even impressive. Reindeer tour is relax (make sure to wear enough as you sit still for quite some time), snowshoe walk (don’t wear too much when good weather), husky tour (whow, that was real fun!). The outdoor lunches were really awesome. Open fire and in no time with a little magic the guide provided us with a nice bowl. The lunch takes quite some time, but why not take the opportunity to enjoy the surroundings?

I noticed some reviews on animal well-being, but l’m confident that the guides genuinly care for them and not just for the money.

Visited with my 11 year old son, was here last year and is great to be back, did the husky sled driving, snow shoe trekking, ice fishing, night time reindeer safari and daytime reindeer sleigh driving. All booked separately and all highly recommended, the staff are great, always on hand, always have a smile and answer any questions answered.

We once again had a ball 👍

Big thank you to everyone at the park.

Fabulous 3 hour trip by reindeer, please take the overalls and blankets that are offered to you, it’s freezing just sitting in a sleigh and you will need them! The sleighs are single seater but under 13’s can sit with an adult, which will help to keep you warm. The fire stop was entertaining and a welcome “warm up” with hot berry juice, hot chocolate and a biscuit, best to eat before you go! Even though it was nighttime your eyes adjusted and the terrain was beautiful, it was great to stop and feed the young reindeer, they were very happy to see us. It was over all too quickly but it was thoroughly enjoyed by all our group and worth every euro! We did not see the northern lights on the safari, but at midnight the same night we were treated to a fabulous display by Salla lake! It will be a collective memory I take to my grave - WOW!
