With some constructed of wood and others in stone, the buildings at the Santa’s Hotel Tunturi are an eclectic mix of old and new. The main building houses a medium-sized, warm and welcoming reception, with a small seating area and interesting gift shop. The numerous other buildings at the Saariselan Tunturi Hotel Saariselka comprise family apartments and individual guestrooms, all named after animals found in the surrounding wilderness. The Saariselan Tunturi Hotel Saariselka is an excellent base from which to explore the Lappish countryside and move on northwards to North Cape.* The reception is open between 07.00 and 22.00 hours, if clients arrive after 22.00 hours keys can be obtained from the Pirtti restaurant which is located in the main building. After 23.00 hours keys will be in the mailbox on the outside of the main door.
