OFF THE BEATEN TRACK IN FINNISH LAPLAND – ONCE IN A LIFETIME WINTER WONDERLAND AND HIKING EXPERIENCE – CHANCE TO SEE THE AURORA BOREALIS AND REINDEER FROM YOUR OWN PORCH
Our newly built log cabin is situated in Salla, north-eastern Finland within the PAN Village Oulanka. If you are looking for a calm and peaceful holiday, admire beautiful untouched nature and want to experience the true Finnish Lapland without the fear of bumping into large tourist crowds, this is the place for you! Although way off the beaten track, you can still access the place with relative ease and have all mod cons and services available. There are lots of activities on offer nearby such as husky safaris, reindeer sleigh tours, snowshoe walking, downhill and cross country skiing during winter and fantastic hiking options during summer seasons. Some of the most famous Finnish hiking trails run in close proximity to our cabin. White-water rafting, climbing, canoe trips and fishing are other summer time activities for which the nearby environment is perfect. There is also a reindeer park in the neighbor where you can feed the reindeer around the year. Usually wild reindeer also end up walking around close to the cabin so keep your camera within reach at all times! Salla is a perfect spot to witness the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. Also, in August and September, the changing of the leaves sets the countryside ablaze with its gorgeous red, brown and golden colors which is therefore perhaps the best time for hiking.
