It was wonderful hostel for me. A cozy room and well organized programs(guides are super nice and I miss all of them), and a nice sauna, but I hope to install more wifi, and reception is always too busy. I want to visit again someday.

It was nice in Kiilopää. Remember that you can't reach any shops without a car and the hostel's own shop is very expencive. The guid was very kind. Besides the hostel there is a hotel and cottages, so it was busier than expected but when in the nature you don't see the other guests.

The resort was very nice. It's a busy place with quite a lot of visitors. There are many ski trails and snow shoeing opportunities.

It's not far from the main road, but you are lost at the hearth of the Taiga. There is a lot of hiking starting, from very easy to three day trips. At 2:30 from the international airport (direct flight from the major capitals), the arctic adventure is here!
