Small, authentic Finnish resort known for its sensational setting and activities....
- Stay in a traditional wood cabin deep in the Arctic Circle, with a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights.
- The birthplace of Finnish skiing has a range of on and off piste options suitable for all abilities.
- Ski slopes sheltered from the wind, and home to generous snowfall throughout a long season.
North of the Arctic Circle, Salla is a great destination if you’re hoping to see the Northern Lights, and offers great beginner and intermediate skiing.
Salla is a small resort with lots of cabins and it’s also popular for its huge variety of activities. You can get your reindeer driving license, try a snowmobile safari or even take a photography course under the Northern Lights. The activities are all run by locals for an authentic taste of the Sami culture. On the mountain, there are also some great value learn-to-ski packages.
The ski area is small and the runs are quiet, meaning it’s perfect for beginners. The views are pretty amazing too. From the top of the slopes, on a clear day you can see all the way to Russia. And if you get a bit chilly or just need to rest your legs for a while, there are warming huts around the slopes where you can sit in front of the open fire or even grill up some sausages for lunch.
Wherever you stay, everything is within a few minutes’ walk from your door. The accommodation is mainly self-catering cabins, with the option to add half board. The cabins vary from traditional log cabins to brand new, more modern cabins. They all come with private saunas, wood fires and an unlimited supply of firewood thrown in for free.
Salla is ideal for beginners. The instructors speak English and the ski school's been recommended by the Finnish Skiing Instructors Association. The hotel and the cabins are all within a 5-minute walk of the slopes, so if you're tired after your lesson, it's not far to get back. Off the slopes, there's loads of activities to do so if you want a day off or don't want to spend a full day skiing, there's plenty of other things to keep you busy.
Salla is great for any intermediate skiers that want to improve or just enjoy skiing on empty slopes. The ski school offers improver lessons and most of the runs are easy or intermediate level. When you want a break, look out for the wooden huts that are at the top and the bottom of some of the runs. They all have firewood and are a great place to rest your legs while you stay warm by the fire.
Although most of the runs are easy or intermediate level, the slopes are quiet and the snow conditions excellent. For skiers looking for speed or a bit of friendly competition, there's the speed check point area, where you can test your speed or race against other members of your group. And in busier periods, the more difficult slopes are opened. Here you can practice the slalom on the FIS classified runs, which are often used by national alpine skiing teams for competition practice.
