Saariselkä Tourist Centre is located in the municipality of Inari, along highway 4, some 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, embraced by Saariselkä fells and Urho Kekkonen National Park. The heart of Saariselkä tourist centre has been designed very solid. Once there you will find out how good that is. Here you don't need a car, as all basic services are within a few hundred metres. Even the southern ascent area of Kaunispää Fell is less than 1 km away - somewhere else it would be counted as part of the town centre. Population becomes sparser towards south - there's plenty of space for those seeking their own space and privacy.

In addition to high-quality services, hotels, restaurants, spa and many activities, Saariselkä offers plenty of marked ski and hiking tracks for nature lovers. Furthermore, the colourful gold history of the area is fascinating to many.
