The Hotel Snowflake is very popular with my visitors to Lapland. With its excellent range of facilities and a reputation for wonderful food. A favourite feature of mine is the Northern Lights Lounge, which offers big squishy sofas looking out to the northern skies through huge, wall-to-wall panoramic windows, so you can watch for the Aurora Borealis in warmth and comfort! Children meanwhile will probably be more interested in the play area and the hotel’s toboggans, provided free of charge for use by guests. The Hotel Snowflake offers a range of family rooms, suites and stylish, well appointed family apartments set in the woods behind the main hotel building, approx. one minute’s walk away. All sofa-beds are suitable for two children under 10 or one older child or adult.
Located in the wild mystical north of Lapland, close to Russia and just a few hours from the Arctic Ocean, Saariselkä is an exceptionally friendly uncommercialised resort with a unique frontier atmosphere. With magnificent Arctic wilderness scenery just on the doorstep, it makes an ideal resort for an all-round winter wonderland adventure. The skies are often a deep hue of pink and purple, the pine trees heavily laden with snow, and being so far north there is a good possibility of seeing the Northern Lights too.
