Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

We are a Finnish family. We went to feed the reindeers. Amazing trip. Really exellent value for the money. First with skidoo sledge through the snowy forest to the reindeers. Then lovely time with reindeers and their cuffs. Guides were really nice and knowledgeable. We have never had better activity. Total surprise. Our warm recommendation to this.

Wilderness park offers really excellent dinner with local specialities. Mushroom soup for starter, then plenty of cold and warm delicates, traditional poronkäristys for main course and delicious cranberry based dessert. Superb tasting dinner and nice staff telling stories about life in Salla and reindeers.

This place is a true hidden gem. It is somehow difficult to find from their web site and online booking seem to be out of order. Use email or phone instead. There is only serve per day, the dinner starts at 17.45 local time and lasts about 3 hours.

We booked a reindeer northern light Safari with them and we have been very happy.
3 hours from 6.00pm to 9.00pm at -20 C in the middle of the wilderness with a shiny full moon to enlighten our way.
The guides were very experienced and contributed to a unique experience.
Along the way we stopped for a cup of hot chocolate or tea in front of a magical bonfire.
We got very lucky because before heading back we saw her majesty the “northern lights”.
Kids (5 and 7) were very excited from the experience.
Overall and boots has been provided to all participants. So, all great.
Really recommended!

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.
