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.

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 😉

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’.

It was a very nice experience! The cottage was perfect! We had everything and we can also have fun with the experience of skiing! We can take a break for this weekend and get in to the finnish life! I think it was a new experience and the cottage was located in the best place!

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.

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.

Travelled: 18th-25th January

Reception: Our key was collected from the small reception area - across the road, the owner/manager was very helpful and also gave us a key for the wood shed (spent many afternoon/evenings by the fire in the warming hut with fantastic views across the lake.

Cabins: The cabins were modern and clean, underfloor heating, flat screen TV, Free wifi, hob, microwave (no oven), Sauna, fresh crisp bedding, plenty of towels etc....well equipped....we could not fault the accommodation.

Meals: We mainly catered for ourselves, there is no supermarket in the resort and we stopped en-route for 45mins on the transfer from the airport to the accommodation, there is a small shop linked to one of the hotels in resort offering all the essentials. We walked 10-12km to Salla one day and did a shop and got a taxi back 25 Euro's
We ate out a couple of times at the log cabin restaurant/café at the bottom of the ski slope: moose burger and fries, reindeer pitta and fries and a couple of drinks approx.40Euro's

Resort: We have been to Finland/Lapland 3 times previously, although stayed in different resorts: Ruka and Yllas,
Salla is definitely the quietest of the 3, if you want fantastic scenery and a real escape to a Winter Wonderland it is the place to go. We are both non-skiers, although we tried cross country skiing for a couple of days which was exhausting but fun. Fantastic resort for beginners as the ski slopes/lifts were very quiet/no queues.
Lots of activities on offer, we did the moonlight snowmobiling which was fantastic, amazing scenery including the northern lights (£108 driver and passenger)

We would definitely recommend and return to Salla, can't wait to go back

Where do I start!? Thoroughly enjoyed a week spent here before Christmas with my partner in one of the Salla Cabins. It exceeded all our expectations from the start. After the journey on the coach with the stop at the supermarket for supplies for the week we were off to salla. We stopped on the way to the cabins at the sign for the Arctic Circle for us all to take pictures which was good, just one of the hundreds of photos we would take throughout our stay! The cabin was well equipped clean tidy and cosy, even down to matches to light the fire to washing up liquid etc. We were worried we would be cold but the cabins are toasty warm with underfloor heating and once the fire is lit with wood from your own wood store outside the place is red hot! Even in -27 degrees as it dipped to during our stay! We even opened the door a couple of times for some cool air and we slept with the window open ! Also to have the use of ypur own private sauna was also very welcoming after a cold day on the slopes! It really was a feel good break and so very relaxing, we booked trips with our rep on the coach on the way to the resort, we booked snow mobiling, reindeer safari and husky safari all the trips were fantastic and worth every penny. My partner also used the ski facilities for a day and literally had the slopes to himself. We were advised to download the Northern Lights app as when someone has seen them they can send a notification to the app which we received on the 2nd night we were there, so up we got and raced outside and low and behold there they were it was out of this world. A really trully magical trip from start to finish. Awesome!! Will definate return.

We loved our holiday in Salla, the best experience and base for discovering Lapland. The cabins were perfect. Good location (very short walk to the slopes), brand new and clean inside and very cosy when it's -27C outside (especially the sauna). The cabins are close to the lake, the best place to spot the Northern Lights. I could even see the Northern Lights outside our bedroom window on one evening! The wifi was poor as we were in the cabin furthest from reception but when you are in the 'middle of nowhere' you don't need wifi. Salla is a great resort for exploring Lapland; we went skiing, husky safari, reindeer sledging and saw the Northern Lights on several occasions. A once in a lifetime holiday experience!

Fantastic place and in the middle of nowhere. Zoe and Craig are excellent and really care about giving you a great holiday. Best place to learn to ski. Will definitely be going back. Lots of trips you can do. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights by the lake. Chalet was basic but had everything needed including a sauna and drying machine for boots and clothes when wet.

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.

Hallo, nee dat klopt niet. Je wordt met je koffers bij de receptie van Sallainen Bungalows afgezet. Vandaar maar een klein stukje lopen naar de bungalow. En er is geen afwasmachine in de bungalow. Wij hadden ook geboekt ( met halfpension) via Voigt. Een paar tips: houd rekening met zeker twintig min.lopen naar restaurant Kiela waar het ontbijt en dinerbuffet is. Het avondbuffet is van 17.00 - 19.00 uur. Tegen 18.00 u is het eten helaas al lauw. Wij hebben bij Bart (waar de sneeuwscooters staan) stepsledes gehuurd voor € 25.00 p.p.p.w. Is erg handig en ook leuk! Veel plezier!
