After a while we shall keep a break: coffee will be served by the open fire, cookies to go with. For those who are interested the reindeer man shall tell about reindeer and life in general in Lapland. The safari continues.

Fishing

Saariselkä also has something to offer to fishing enthusiasts: lakes and rivers with clean and clear water and rugged landscapes are an adventure for even the most experienced fisherman.

Bird-watching

Moreover, Saariselkä is certainly the place you should use as your fort when you go bird-watching. During a day trip, you can familiarize yourself with not only the species at the peaks of the fells, but also those along the rivers.

Hiking

Hikers can choose the trail that best suits their condition and schedule, from a one-kilometre hike to one that takes several days. Marked trails beginning in the centre of Saariselkä, Kiilopää or Tankavaara lead to the Urho Kekkonen national park.
