From tobogganing and husky-sledging to snowmobiling and skiing, the Hotel Snowflake & Apartments give you easy access to Lapland’s winter sports.
This place puts you within walking distance of the action. Stroll for a few minutes past the frost-covered trees on the hotel’s frozen forecourt, and you’ll reach a toboggan hill.
Accommodation here comes in two forms – rooms and apartments. Both are dressed in warm colour schemes of copper and brown. Plus, apartments have the added luxury of a sauna and kitchen area.

A basic hotel close to slopes
This is functional basic hotel in the center of Saariselkä village and close to the slopes and hiking trails. The hotel is a bit worn and the atmosphere takes you back 40 years. Friendly staff and plentiful breakfast buffet.More
End of summer
Although this time is not very hot for visiting lapland but the weather is really nice . The hotel is comfortable . Breakfast and wifi are good .7 to 10 PM we enjoy sunna after 2 hours walking in forest of national park. There is one shopping center ,you can find everything you need no more than 500 meter from hotel.More
Needs an upgrade!
Generally the hotel is shabby and needs a renovation. Breakfast was scheduled to end at 10:00 but 09:30 many dishes were already finished. We had suite and superior rooms and the value for money really sucked!More
Good hotel, great restaurant
There are not many hotels in saariselka, so compared to the competitors, this is a good hotel and recommendable. Staff was efficient and friendly. The hotel provides all necessary services. However, rooms and hotel interior could see some update. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in buffet style and ala carte in the evening. I had ala carte in the evening and for that I will give full 5 points, excellent. Breakfast was OK.More
Great location and price
It appears to be the hotel choice of tours as we saw many buses here. The price was reasonable and the location was great. We walked to everything in town and across the street from the Santa Hotel where we picked up our Sixt car. The staff was friendly, and breakfast was similar to other hotels in Finland. The rooms were dated but roomy and comfortable.More
