The Kelorinne Log Cabins are traditional semi-detached log cabins, ideal for couples or small families. They're in amongst the trees, which gives you plenty of privacy, and are comfortably furnished inside.
All the cabins have a private sauna and wood burning fire in the living area that creates a cosy atmosphere on cold winter nights. If you did want to venture out for an evening, the bars and restaurants in the resort are all just a few minutes' walk away. For a little extra indulgence, you can access to the spa at the Hotel Revontuli for an additional charge.

Salla Ski Resort
Skiing and activities surrounded by the most beautiful scenery mother nature can offer
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.
Two fun-filled days of activities. On the first day you'll embark on a Snowmobile safari to the husky farm and be taught how to control your team through snowy forests and frozen lakes. On the second day you'll head out on a Snowshoe hiking trip through the deep snow covering the hilltop of Iso-Syöte for beautiful views and natural snow sculptures. The length of safari is approx 11km on snowmobiles and 6km with huskies. There are 2 people per sled. Duration of the programme is 3 hours. The duration of the snowshoe hike is approx 2-2.5 hours.
Embark on three uniquely fantastic and inspiring activities during your stay in Salla. You'll set off on a colourful adventure to see the Aurora Borealis on the Northern Lights Reindeer Safari (2-3 hours), race across the wilderness on a Husky Sleigh Ride (2 hours) and trek through the powder on the Snowshoe to Ice Wall & Icefishing tour (4 hours). Transport is included for all activities and thermal clothing is provided if required.
Husky Sleigh Ride
Drive your team of dogs across the snowy terrain, through the woods and open marshlands. Stop along the way for a picnic lunch of hot coffee, sausages and sweet buns by the fire. Then guide the dogs back to Salla where you'll receive your husky sleigh driving license. Duration: approx 2 hours. Prices are based on 2 people per sleigh.
Northern Light Reindeer Safari
Guide your reindeer and sleigh as you head out into the silent Lappish night. Search for the Northern Lights in the starry skies above before stopping to warm up with hot drinks. Duration: approx 2-3 hours. Prices are based on 2 people per sleigh.
Snowmobile Hut Safari
This guided snowmobile safari takes you to a Lapp hut near Ruuhitunturi fell. You’ll stop for a reindeer burger and hot coffee while you warm up by the fire, before heading back on your snowmobile to Salla. Length: 30km. Duration: 3 hours.
Please note - Snowmobiles:
To drive a snowmobile you must be over 18 years of age and able to provide a full driving licence. A waiver form needs to be completed prior to taking part in the activity.
Skiing in Salla
*Special offer - FREE Child Lift Passes
Free lift pass, equipment hire and helmet for children under 6 years, when accompanied by an adult.
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.
Salla is said to be the birthplace of Finnish cross-country, so it's no surprise that the choice of trails is huge. All of the tracks are 6-8 metres wide and maintained daily, run from your doorstep all the way into the stunning Finnish wilderness. Uniquely, there are exercise-based tracks on the Sallantuturi fell which are made on a base of sawdust. Dogs are also allowed on certain tracks, and if you love a bit of night skiing, you'll be glad to know that 43km of the trails in Salla are floodlit.
If you're partial to a bit of deep-snow skiing, then you'll mainly find that at the sides of the piste in Salla. It means you won't have to venture far off the beaten path for some more challenging trails, and it means you can have a lot more fun with it, knowing that you can get back to the runs pretty easily.
