We had lunch before leaving on the husky safari. Lovely airy seating but disappointed in the choice for gluten -free eaters. Basically only packaged cookies. The huskies are great - mad and friendly, with oodles of energy. They burst into a run as soon as they are let go. Sledding was fun, with a break for sausages grilled over an... More

Amazing Hut called Tähtitaivaskota with real Finnish traditional food. Good concept. Excellent staff and service. Nice storytelling while starters was turned to main dish and dessert. Publicly open only on Thursdays, other days for private / groups. # sallareindeerpark #tähtitaivaskota

We went on the three hour reindeer safari, which was an amazing experience in itself, but what really made it was the knowledge and passion of the staff, whose love of reindeer and the Lappish lifestyle was clear. On stopping for a break and setting a fire, they even carved spoons for everyone by whittling the wood and there are... More

Dreams do come true in Salla , If you imagine a place to experience the cold, play in the snow, keep warm at night in a log cabin by a roaring log fire , hear your foot steps in the snow , to see nature all around you and above all feel the warm of the Finnish people as they... More

We came only for one reason to Salla and that was the reindeer race at this park! The unique thing about it, is that it's the only place in Finland were you can try the reindeer race yourself! With some skis behind the reindeer, you are pulled by the reindeer. It was an amazing experience! And it's not that they... More

The staff a re very helpful and friendly, most speak very good English. There is a small cafe and gift shop at the centre and an informative Museum on the local area at the back that does not seem to be promoted very much. The following trips all began from this point and we would highly recommend them all: :Reindeer... More

Me & my husband went out for a husky safari trip in the park. Have to say it was a very enjoyable & relaxing experience. Dogs are well trained and looked after, the scenery is marvellous and service provided is really professional but fun. Ps. We came back the day after just to watch doggies again ;)

The park is definitely worth of visiting, especially if you are not familiar with reindeers. We were little bit disappointed to the service and knowledge in the info desk. At first it was not possible to enter the park by car, but suddenly it was ok for another group... The high season must be the winter time; in July it... More

Spent a week in Salla and did a bit of everything. The one thing I will never forget an my entire family loved was the Husky Run. The dogs are incredible, staff is super friendly, and there is nothing like riding in the middle of nowhere in the Arctic Circle being pulled by a team of dogs. We did the... More
