Saariselkä in far north

Saariselkä is located far away in the north, and that makes it a very special place! The Saariselkä tourism centre borders on Urho Kekkonen National Park. Nature and natural phenomena, such as the northern lights, create a unique atmosphere that has led to rapid growth in international tourism, especially from Asia. The airport is less than half an hour away. The master plan and local detailed plan for Saariselkä and the surrounding area include a construction area for programme services, restaurants, hotels and other tourism services.

The master plan area has an area for construction related to gold prospecting tourism, which is located on Kutturantie road in Haminanharju (Ivalo district, Kuttura).
