Hotel Riekonlinna, Saariselkä
The Riekonlinna is a well appointed hotel with an excellent range of facilities and a reputation for wonderful food. Unsurprisingly therefore, it has proved extremely popular with Esprit guests over recent years.
A favourite feature is the Northern Lights Lounge, which offers big squishy sofas looking out to the northern skies through huge, wall-to-wall panoramic windows, so you can watch for the Aurora Borealis in warmth and comfort!
Children meanwhile will probably be more interested in the play area and the hotel's toboggans, provided free of charge for use by guests.
The Riekonlinna offers a range of family rooms, suites and stylish, well appointed new family apartments set in woods behind the main hotel building, approx. one minute's walk away.
