We are really faszinated! The cabin was really perfect for the relaxing days we wished to spend in the wilderness. It is the second to the last house in the Pan Village Oulanka (just a few houses with great distance to eachother). We did not see almost anybody in these 9 days. Just wilderness around us!
Lovely interior, great infrastucture with 3 separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, one big big livingroom with kitchen and a nice sauna.
The cabin is appr. 3 km from Sallatunturin - a very uncommercial ski resort, we war almost alone on the piste. About 10 km from the very very small village Salla where we could buy anything we needed.
5 Minutes walk from the cabin there is the Reindeerpark, where we could arrange everything we wished to do (get snowshoes, forest skies, husky, reindeer and snowmobile trips).
We did the 5 h snowmobile trip, we was very lucky to have just one young other couple and the guide with us, so we had reallly speed and fun (I don´t recommend to book a trip with more than 5 snowmobiles, there are always people in the group called "brakes" ;) ). The husky trip was one of the greates we did, but minimum 4 hours must be to be able to enjoy.
We had really unforgettable days at Ulf´s cabinand could spend one month more there. Ulf was really helpful, had perfect communication and we got organised tips and todos, was great even we don´t met personally.
There is no better place to stay in Salla.
We had a wonderful week in Lapland, and this log cabin has played for much !
Like many, we didn't meet Ulf but he was easily contactable.
The cabin was exactly like on the pictures and even better. The only thing which is not noticed, is that each cabin are placed side by side by four but it's really not a problem (walls a well isolated and in our case we were almost alone in the PAN Village)
Thanks again for this week !
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour en Laponie dans le chalet de Ulf. Très confortable, propre et spacieux, l'endroit idéal pour se détendre après une journée dans le grand froid.
Le chalet est situé dans un bel endroit, à proximité de toutes les activités. Nous recommandons fortement ce logement.
The perfect place for your Lapland experience! The cabin is outstanding, Ulf is a wonderful host. Sallatunturi is a really good blend of remoteness and a surprisingly good infrastructure. We'd come back any time!
We really enjoyed staying in your cabin. It is a great place to stay for the person interested in some winter activities like cross-country or alpine skiing, snowboarding and tracking northern lights. The location is very convenient because it's not far from Sallatunturi ski resort, reindeer park and the city of Salla. We had no problems with finding it and accommodating. The cabin itself has plenty of room for everyone. The cabin manual and the maps of skiing trails and slopes in english were very helpful as well. The only issue we had was the sauna manual which was only in finnish. But some google translating and common sense did the trick. Everything else is awesome and I'm not sure that anything else needs improvement. Great cabin, quick-to-reply and responsible host, uncrowded and quite place in the middle of snowhere. What else does a Lapland traveller need? My family wishes you lots of guests to visit your cabin regurarly. I hope we'll visit it once again next year.
As expected - a beautiful home and a wonderful host. Thanks very much Ulf. All the best.
We had a great time staying at Ulf's cabin! He was very informative and quick to respond to questions in the lead up to our arrival, and during our stay.
Salla is absolutely beautiful, and we visited in December, and were able to ski, visit reindeer and go snowmobiling. A car is a must here, but the area is so peaceful and beautiful, it doesn't feel touristy at all.
The cabin was luxurious, and looks exactly as it does in the pictures. We loved coming back every evening after a day on the slopes and having some wine in front of the fire. The sauna was amazing and the place was so clean.
We would happily come back in the future! Thank you so much Ulf!
Thank you Ulf, we're happy to come back one day :)
We (two couples) had a wonderful summer stay in the cabin and what we can only regret is that it was too short, 5 days :) The cabin, actually a large and isolated part of a new wooden house exceeded our expectations, in terms of comfort, and space, and neighbourhood.
We enjoyed cooking with all kitchen utensils we could have expected, enjoying the results of the cooking at the large table and relaxed after hiking and biking in a very spacious living room. The photos are very realistic yet it's great to arrive in the middle of nowhere and find yourself inside an interior design' magazine, modern and comfortable:)
It was very calm in the beginning of August - we hardly noticed a couple of neighbours in the village.
Reindeer stroll around and have a rest in the shadow of the cabin, expected and still fantastic!
The closest neighbourhood is very quiet yet all the places you may need are very close: bar / restaurant / ski slopes / bikes / boats - 2 km in Sallatunturi, supermakets in 13 km, the great Oulanka 80km-long hiking trail Karhunkierros info point is in 30 km (while smaller tracks are just 400m away).
Ulf, whom we did not meet in person was very helpful and quick in response before the arrival as well as during the stay.
We strongly recommend the cabin (too modest name for a great place!) for everyone who seeks great comfort in the middle of Finnish wilderness with quick access to all summer and winter funs (and reindeer;) .
Thank you Ulf for the great stay!
Ulf's comfy log cabin in the Lapland wilderness near Salla was very modern, and comfortable - exactly as it appeared in the airbnb photographs. After a long day of driving north, we found it easily within Pan Village next to the Salla reindeer park. It was one of a number of very attractive, well-spaced cabins nestled amongst trees and overlooking a bog.
We appreciated the welcoming reindeer relaxing by our cabin in the bright evening sunlight. Inside the cabin, the overall spaciousness, the two WCs and showers, the room sauna, the comfortable furnishings and the modern clothes washer and other appliances made our stay very pleasant and satisfying. The wifi worked flawlessly.
We also appreciated the proximity of the reindeer park and its lengthy hiking trails. The town of Salla with its history museum and other attractions and stores was worth visiting. Between Salla and Pan Village we found a bicycle rental outlook and took advantage of the great bike paths between Salla and Pan Village.
We only stayed at Ulf's cabin for four days but wish we would have had more time to spend at least a few more days of peace and quiet and complete relaxation.
Thanks - great experience. Look forward to having you back! :)
