On our first visit to Riekonlinna we were wary - is this property right for Different Snow? However, all fears were allayed and we are now convinced it's a great option for your holiday. It has all the facilities of a large hotel, yet still manages to create an atmosphere that befits the cosy, wintery character of Saariselkä. Feedback has been good, whether guests choose to stay in the hotel rooms in the main block or in one of the apartments, which are just 100 metres away in the woods behind the main hotel building - a one minute walk away. 

The hotel rooms have a balcony, satellite TV and some come with private saunas and some with sofa-beds. The apartments, which have either one or two bedrooms, include a kitchen and once again the all-important private sauna. All guests have access to Linnansali restaurant, famous for it's specialism in Lappish game dishes and catches from the Arctic Sea. A favourite feature of the hotel is the Northern Lights Lounge, which offers comfy couches for looking out to the northern skies through large, wall-to-wall panoramic windows. To top it off there is the HealthEx gym and Feel Good Street - offering a range of therapies, treatments and massages.
