We were fortunate enough to experience the best hotels in Saariselkä while on a paid press trip with Inghams. All opinions, however, are our own.
Planning a trip to Finnish Lapland can be an exciting, yet slightly overwhelming, experience.
A wild, wintery wilderness featuring more reindeer than people, our first concern was whether hotels even existed in this remote region. With premonitions of (our own) poorly made igloos and icy log cabins, we made the assumption that accommodation here might be – at best – basic.
Thankfully, we were proven wrong entirely.
Having been fortunate enough to experience not one, but three hotels, whilst staying in Saariselkä, we thought it might be useful to put together a guide to the surprisingly luxury lodges on offer. Far from draughty, stripped-back dwellings, the hotels we experienced here were luxurious, cosy and utterly magical.
In fact, it was perhaps these hotels that made our trip to Finnish Lapland so special. From roaring fires to hearty food, authentic saunas to glass aurora cabins, the hotels in Saariselkä made our trip to the Arctic an unforgettable one.
