Saariselkä is one of the oldest tourist centers in Finland

Saariselkä is one of the oldest tourist centers in Finland, where have been travel activity since the 1950s. Unlike other holiday resorts, Saariselkä is also a village, because there has been a permanent settlement and residents here since 1973. The actual development of tourism started in the 1980s and the growth continues today.

Today, the permanent population is almost three hundred people, but the number of residents varies according to the seasons. Many current residents have first come to work for the one season and then stayed permanently in the fells. The locals humorously talk about “Brought by Eskelinen” (Lappish coach company) and “Senteced for life”, but there are “bare footed” people in Saariselkä, who were born in here.

Experience nature in Urho Kekkonen National Park

The Saariselkä area has always differed from other tourist centers in Lapland. The village is in the hug of Urho Kekkonen National Park, so here you are in the middle of Lapland’s nature. In Saariselka you can find e.g. Finland’s longest sledding hill with lights and Finland’s largest ski track network, with a total of 200 kilometers in the winter season. The Saariselkä area has very versatile camping, hiking, mountain biking and skiing trails, as well as the slalom ski slopes. In hills, the terrain trails vary in both their steepness and length, from a few hours’ walk to a week-long hike.
All our destinations in Saariselkä are located close to outdoor trails and nature.

Kuukkeli (Siberian Jay) is lucky bird in Lapland

As the first and only grocery store in Saariselkä, Kuukkeli has played a big role in the development of the Saariselkä into a village, and as the village has grown, the lucky bird Kuukkeli has also raised his family. Originally opened in 1981, K-Shop Kuukkeli is today K-Market Kuukkeli. The word kuukkeli appearing in the company’s name indicates that it belongs to the same family and at the same time it is a brand name.

In addition to the only grocery store in the village of Saariselkä, we offer accommodation as well as bike rental and activity services. Taxi Kuukkeli picks up, delivers and drops off. Home Bakery Kuukkeli prepares and bakes fresh products every day like with Kuukkeli’s own (and secret) recipe of unleavened barley bread seasoned with smoked reindeer or potato , as well as cloudberry jam doughnuts.
