We had a Christmas dinner at restaurang Teerenpesä and for all of us food and service was fast and good. I took wild mushroom soup as starter and reindeer filet with oven vegetables and both of them were really good! Food for children, hamburgers were good and salads , fish and beef for rest of adults were tasteful😃 House wine which was recommended was also good. I can recomend this restaurang.
We went here to experience the Midnight Sun. The accommodation is just what I expected. If you are expecting luxury you will be dissatisfied. Its a log cabin in the artic circle. It was very clean, warm. Fridge, TV, decent size bathroom with shared sauna which is allocated in slots so you can use it privately. The area its located in Saariselka is very quiet is the summer so hire a car to explore the areas. Roads are very easy and I felt safe driving in Finland. The rooms were not cleaned during our stay but to be honest that was fine. If you are going to experience the midnight Sun you can go on top of the fell the views are amazing. No need for a private tour. The water park is OK in the holiday club if you fancy a swim. Be warned the food is expensive but I'm sure you'll be aware of this. Breakfast was included which was nice. Ivalo and Saariselka is a fantastic place to explore. If you want to visit a animal park for huskies etc I recommend Wild Spirit Park but mozzy spray. …
We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't love it more. The location is excellent - close to all restaurants. The ski bus takes you from right in front of the cabin. The log cabins are everything you would ask for in Finland - warm and cosy and the excellent sauna. The check-in experience is a bit troublesome - you need to collect the keys from a supermarket next door. The breakfast spread is not too great either and that's why I give 4 stars. Other than these 2 issues, absolutely loved our stay here.
We stayed here after staying at kakslautenen. A great log cabin in the heart of Saariselka town. Confusing check in, we weren’t aware our had to go to the post office down the road to get the key. We would have been waiting a long time if it wasn’t for our taxi driver who called the number on the sign outside. Same as for checkout, we had no idea what we were doing as had to leave at 3am for our flight back to the UK (6am). Facilities were basic in the room but everything we needed. From here, we went snow mobiling, cross county skiing, to lots of bars and pubs all within walking distance. Would highly recomend staying here after kakslautenen.
Yes, the check in is a little annoying, but there's not much in the little town, so it's easy to find the post office and then your room. At least you feel like in a real remote place. Our room wasn't clean, but they gave us immediately an other (better) one. Room is big and comfortable. You can use the common sauna but just in a specific hour (it dipends on your room). I enjoyed my stay.
