Beautiful caravan area with over a hundred electric places and twelve cabins with sauna for 2+2 persons. Sallainen Caravan and Cabins are located by lake Keselmajarvi and in the heart of Sallfell and ski resort. Spa, restaurants and other services are all less than half a kilometer away. Ski and hiking tracks burst the area and you can ski right to your cabin door from the slope. There's an idyllic fireplace by the lake and only few steps from the area a peaceful, sunny beach.

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.

My three night stay in Sallatunturi was a bit of a washout in an otherwise record-setting hot summer, but Sallainen Cottages somehow made up for it. The weather on my arrival day was horrendous, but the management granted me complimentary early checkin so I could journey early and avoid the worst of the poor driving conditions: hugely appreciated. Once there, the cottage was lovely, just the right size for a solo traveller or a couple, recently built with a separate bedroom, well-equipped kitchen, comfortably furnished, good wifi and a welcoming sauna to compensate for the miserable weather. Linens and towels were spotlessly fresh. The location, just beside the fell, is also perfect for hiking, and the town of Salla, just 10 km away, has decent supermarkets in case you forgot to stock up en route (Salla also has petrol stations). The owners kindly provided a detailed local map, showing all services, attractions and trails If you are touring around Lapland this is an ideal place to relax in comfort in a location that proudly announces itself as ‘the middle of nowhere’.

Great location and views both to the mountain and to the lake. Too few toilets. A tiny sauna and showers. Small kitchen combined with laundry. A bit old and untidy. If you need to leave early you can’t take electricity as it is charged by usage and you can only check out after 9 am. Odd.

We stayed in Salla cabins for 7 nights at the end of January. Our cabin had all we needed; dishwasher(please take few tablets to use it), fridge-freezer, microwave,hob and coffee maker(don't forget to take some ground coffee) and rest like pans, cluttery and dining set. There was even more than we needed. The fireplace and private sauna,clothing dryer and central heating with underfloor heating in bathroom and kitchen so we had warm even when outside was -35 Celsius degrees! That was awesome 😍😍 Everywhere were huge amounts of white clean fresh snow,the views were breathing. The resort was prepared for tourist in 100%, despite we felt there like only we and snowy mountains, forest we coud find there all sorts of luxury. Few delicious restaurants and pubs. Swimming pool in nearby hotel, and gym in walking distance. Everything was well maintain and staff very friendly and helpful. We rent snowboard equipment, and been expecting pure quality one. But to our surprise we received boots, helmets and board in perfect quality all from the top brands. Just at the bottom of the slope is a small caffee with a ski shop. So don't worry if you forget your goggles, helmet or gloves you can buy most what you need from there in competitive prices. Slopes were superb in my opinion especially for beginners and families with children. In January there were no queues, no busy lift passes or slopes. You can enjoy it in your own speed and peace. This was our first winter holiday but definitely not the last! We never came back from holiday so rested...and we wish to be back there asap!!! 😍 We really recommend reindeer safari!!!😄😄😄 not only for kids 😉 It was an unforgettable experience! We liked as well snow mobile safari with overwhelming views. Unfortunately or fortunately😉 for most of the time sky was cloudy and we didn't see aurora 😢 that's why we have to go there again! For those who are looking for peaceful holiday with tones of snow here in Salla you'll find all you looking for. I'll promise 😉

Booked two Salla cabins with Friends through Crystal for a week away in Feb 2020. On the supermarket stop off prior to arriving, you need to be prepared! 30 mins is not a long time to get a week’s shopping (if you are not planning to eat out every night). If you think you can buy spirits and wine for relaxing nights in, think again. Apparently Finland do have alcohol stores that sell Drinks over 5.5% but not on this stop off. Don’t be tempted to run over the the nearby Lidl either....same story. Only beer is on offer!! Food is reasonably priced in resort with a couple of nice restaurants but prepare to be stung on beer, wines & spirits. 8-9 euros for a large beer, 6-8 euro for a small glass of wine/spirit. Take more money than you need, there’s no banks here. Prior to booking Crystal had informed us that the Cabins didn’t come with sundries like washing up liquid, toilet rolls, soap, shower gel, tea towel, etc. I can confirm that the cabins were both stocked with these items. Our cabins were basic but adequate. The sauna was nice after been out in the cold. We got a great price but had we paid over £600 each for the week, we might have been a tad disappointed. The resort itself is stunning and remote. Book the trips in advance to avoid disappointment. A nearby frozen lake (10mins walk) offers a viewing platform for the northern lights. A fire hut on the island of the lake is where you need to be. Find the hut on google maps and it will take you there. We are all decent intermediate skiers. If you are a similar level or above you need to read my other review on the Salla ski resort. In summary though, we only had half of the 10Km resort open! That said, if you are a beginner, there’s no finer place to learn to ski. Its exceptionally quiet any there is nothing scary. A must is the doughnuts at the bottom of the slope. Really great fun if you are fit enough to drag one up the slope. Wherever you stay in resort the walk is short enough to walk in ski boots if you have your own gear. You get a sledge which can be used for your skis if you struggle. If there is plenty of snow you can even ski back to the cabin!As I write this I am still in resort and enjoying our holiday. Would recommend but be prepared and informed.

We stayed for 2 nights in one of the apartments/cabins. It was spacious, clean and we were very impressed with the drying room, cupboard and kitchen facilities. The lovely owners were so accommodating and helpful; really nice people. The location right on the lake is just beautiful with lots of walks and they even have a little boat that you can take out on the lake. A very quiet place in the Summer. We also camped 1 night in the campground area it’s our tent. The shared toilets, showers and kitchen facilities were all very clean and easily accessible.

The cabins are large, comfortable and very clean. The location is fantastic, very quiet and near a lake where you can try to chase the northern lights. There are two big supermarkets 10 min by car where you can buy anything you may need.

Easy to come, nice to stay, smart place to start hiking. I recommend to hike to Ruuhitunturi, not so easy route but excellent views are waiting for you. After hiking you can go to sauna in Sallainen camping area and relax your muscles

We arrived quite late in the evening during the off-season and still everything went smoothly. Very nice area by a lake with a hiking trail around it. Nice views and tidy bathrooms and kitchen made our day. Well worth the money!

We stayed in the cabins and found them perfect for our stay. There were 3 adults and one teenager and we found the cabin fine for us for a week. The kitchen was well equipped, the only things that could be added would be a measuring jug and kitchen scissors but we managed without. Washing up liquid was supplied. There isn't a dishwasher, which would have been nice to have but I was very pleased to have a freezer which I could fit plenty in for the week, handy as the supermarket is quite a distance so you really need to stock up. The 'shop' in resort is very small and has very little. We only got bread and milk there and we had to go back for that as they didn't have any milk the first time we went, don't rely on it. The location was nice, being by the lake, and if the cloud had cleared it may have been a bit better for spotting the northern lights. There was good access to cross-country and walking tracks close to the cabins however, with a lot of the runs being closed we didn't have the option of going up the nearest lift and had to walk into resort for downhill skiing, which, although not too far did become a bit of a chore in ski boots, especially as it was unseasonably warm, although we did manage to ski back to the cabins so it was only one-way. The resort itself is probably a better location to stay if you're going downhill skiing as you have all the convenience of being by the lifts but still have direct access onto cross-country tracks allowing you to mix it up and try both. The owner of our cabins was friendly and helpful and the folder in the cabin was better than many we've found in Finland. I'd definitely recommend staying here if you want a more peaceful location away from resort.

We went with Crystal Holidays. The accommodation was excellent, lovely and warm. Everything we needed was there. Good wifi reception (free). The TV only had Finnish programmes but this was no problem as a lot are either in English or American with just Finnish subtitles. It was right by the cross-country ski routes and about 5 minutes from the ski slopes. The resort is very quiet. We went for the cross-country skiing. The Crystal website states that there are 160km of tracks. In fact, up to mid February, no more than 52 kilometres are groomed. There is no supermarket but the nearby hotel had a corner which sold milk, bread, tins, packets and so on.
