Saariselkä, a municipality that is located more than 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in a privileged natural environment, is the white paradise of Lapland. Its hills show us an unmistakable arctic landscape, surrounded by great frozen lakes and a multitude of snow-covered forests. A short distance away we find the alpine ski resort of Saariselkä, perfect for skiers of any level. The Northern Lights Village is located in the surroundings of Saariselkä, in a privileged natural enclave surrounded by the virgin and untouched nature of Lapland. A perfect place to explore on a snowmobile, ride a husky or reindeer sleigh... or just relax in the sauna. With a bit of luck we will be able to admire the spectacular Aurora Borealis from our own accommodation. The opinion of many travelers who have been able to enjoy this wonderful experience is, without a doubt, our best guarantee...
