Always one of the first places I visit when in Saariselka. Attractive little modern wooden church in the village with astounding views from the full length windows behind the altar of the adjacent forest, its like bringing nature inside. Stunning by day and by night when the trees are floodlit . A very peaceful, tranquil and thought provoking place to sit and contemplate for a while.

Apart from church services the church is used for community events and the New year concert of traditional Finnish songs was well worth attending, very atmospheric and a glimpse into the local culture so do attend an event too if there is one scheduled.

From Santa’s Hotel Tunturi, I went uphill for a while to north. I came across a small church in snow. This was Saariselka S:t paulis kapell (Saariselan Pyhan Paavalin kappeli).
At night I came here again because of photographing northern lights. Here is well known as a best point of observation northern lights. I had a great experience here that I heard some sound of northern lights and I saw special red or pink color northern lights.
