Ensi vaikutelman antaminen on äärimmäisen tärkeää kun sen ei voi antaa kuin yhden ainoan kerran ja täällä ensivaikutelma oli suorastaan lumoavaa. Täällä oli asiakaspalvelu niin täydellistä kuin vain voi olla. Palvelu altista henkilökuntaa tupa täynnä ja sai mitä tahtoikin ja vähän sen päällekkin. Oikkem bali kiitoksi hyväst palvelusta, tänne on kiva tulla uudestaan. Ilon kautta...😊 (Translated by Google) Making a first impression is extremely important because it can only be made once, and here the first impression was downright enchanting. The customer service here was as perfect as it gets. The room was full of service oriented staff and got everything they wanted and a little more. Oikkem Bali, thank you for the good service, it's nice to come here again. Through joy...😊 Read more Read lessJuha Nieminen
Olimme ensimmäistä kertaa Saariselällä ja poikkesimme syömään pienen lounaan lasten kanssa tässä paikassa. Ranskalaiset olivat yhdet parhaimmista mitä olen syönyt ja heidän itse tekemät nachot olivat TODELLA HERKULLISIA!!! Henkilökunta oli todella huippu, heidän asiakaspalvelu sekä asenne oli täyden kympin setti, heistä voisi moni ottaa mallia🌞🌞🌞 (Translated by Google) We were in Saariselka for the first time and stopped by to eat a small lunch with the children at this place. The french fries were one of the best I've ever eaten and the Nachos they made themselves were REALLY DELICIOUS!!! The staff was really great, their customer service and attitude was top notch, many of them could take a role model🌞🌞🌞 Read more Read lessMarko Hirvonen
Kiitos taas mahtavasta laskettelukokemuksesta! Kahden tunturin välissä oli jo vähän eroa kevätauringon lämmittäessä Kaunispään etelärinnettä. Upeat puitteet ja lapsiperheelle hyvin ystävällinen. Tarpeeksi kaukana kaikesta. (Translated by Google) Thanks again for the great skiing experience! There was already a little difference between the two fells as the spring sun warmed the southern slope of Kaunispää. Great setting and very friendly for families with children. Far enough from everything. Read more Read lessElisa Helava
Lasketteluopetus pienelle eka kertaa rinteessä.. loistava innostava opettaja. Lapsi innostui lajista joten voisin sanoa ettei parempaa palautetta voi olla. Kiitos! Toista kertaa Saariselällä. Täydellinen, kaunis paikka josta löytyy upeat rinteet, turvallinen pulkkamäki ja hienot hiihtoladut. Myös palaneen Kuukkeli-kaupan tilalle avattu uusi upea Kuukkeli kauppakeskus Siulaan Saariselälle. (Translated by Google) Downhill skiing for the first time on the slopes .. great inspiring teacher. The child got excited about the sport so I could say there can be no better feedback. Thank you! For the second time in Saariselkä. Perfect, beautiful place with great slopes, a safe toboggan run and great ski trails. A magnificent new Kuukkeli shopping center in Siiselä, Saariselkä, has also been opened to replace the burnt Kuukkeli store. Read more Read lessNerolinkukka

Kesällä caravan parkissa, Käytimme: pyörävuokraamo, aamiainen, puhdasvesitankkaus, kemssan tyhjennys ja sauna. Tulimme toiseksikin yöksi.. Maisemien vuoksi (laskettelukeskus) olis voinut jättää yhden tähden pois, mutta ihana uusi sauna ja raikas purouinti korvasi kaiken 💚 (Translated by Google) In the summer in the caravan park, We used: bike rental, breakfast, clean water filling, emptying the toilet and sauna. We came for a second night.. For the scenery (ski resort) you could have left one star off, but the wonderful new sauna and fresh stream swimming made up for everything 💚 Read more Read lessRebekka Rajala

Ski resort located in wonderful nature, in winter and summer as well. There's a variety of slopes, ideal for kids, families or beginning skiers as the drop and length of the slopes might be not that much demanding for advanced or experienced skiers. Rentals, restaurants and parking premises are located at the foot of the slopes. From this point also cross country skiing tracks are starting. Read more Read lessmato krajo

Parasta mitä Caravanareille Saariselällä on tehty! Siisti hiljainen eriomainen palvelu,, Turvallinen jos esim, autopallo! autot riittävän etäällä toisistaan eikä missään "räystäitten" alla samoin hinnoittelu saa ostaa mitä palvelua tarvitsee. (Translated by Google) The best thing that has been done for Caravanares in Saariselkä! Clean, quiet, excellent service,, Safe if, for example, car ball! cars at a sufficient distance from each other and nowhere under the "eaves" as well as the pricing you can buy what service you need.

Rinteet aivan huippu kunnossa aina ja lunta riittää pitkälle kevääseen rinteissä. Rinteet aivan huippuja varsinkin lasten kanssa laskemiseen ja temppuiluun. Suosittelen 👍🏼💪 huhtikuun viimeinen viikko alkaa ja rinteet edelleen huippukunnossa laskea!! Tulkaa nyt hyvät ihmiset vapuksi laskemaan kun lunta riittää rinteissä👍🏼👍🏼💪 (Translated by Google) The slopes are always in top condition and there is enough snow on the slopes well into spring. The slopes are absolutely great, especially for skiing and trick-or-treating with children. I recommend 👍🏼💪 The last week of April starts and the slopes are still in top condition to go down!! Now, good people, come and count when there is enough snow on the slopes👍🏼👍🏼💪 Read more Read lessTimo Helén
