Just Got Back from… Saariselkä

Dog Sledding LaplandThe overall feel of the holiday village in Saariselkä is one of homely charm which would appeal to families and couples. My experiences here have been amongst my most memorable to date. The magical ambience of the snow covered fells and rustic cabin accommodation really do make for the ideal winter escape. The Kakslauttanen Igloo Village is a shimmering cluster of snow and glass igloos, log cabins and hotel rooms and suites. Although based in a picturesque rural area, there are numerous facilities nearby, including shops, cafés and other hotel restaurants. During my stay I plucked up the courage to embark on a snowmobile safari. As anyone who knows me will gladly tell you, I am the original scaredy cat, so this was no easy decision! However, in no time at all, my fear was superseded by excitement and I can highly recommend this as a spectacular way to imbibe the incredible Arctic scenery. Although snowmobiling may have filled me with slight, yes slight, intrepidation, I am always open to new experiences and so, when we stopped to enjoy reindeer around an open fire, I was happy to sample the local cuisine. If you are searching for a unique family break or a romantic getaway, the Kakslauttanen Holiday Village is well worth a look.
