Yes this was crazy money for 3 nights, but we really had a fab time! Tobogganing, night skimobile trekking to see Northern lights with campfire, Husky sleigh rides through the woods for 2 hours (self-Drive!), 2 hour Reindeer dawn sleigh ride in magical snow fall....igloo visits, skidoo rides for my then 5 year old son, cross country skiing out our condo patio door....good enough buffet style food, awesome lodge restaurant with amazing soups daily, Sariselka town has a fab grocery store, and nice gift shops. The best thing for me was the Sami people reindeer safari early on our last day....at dawn we arrived at the reindeer farm, and were guided by a traditionally dressed beautiful Sami woman who gently told us about reindeer and their life. We had hot berry tea in a traditional teepee with open fire....really amazing. Altho expensive it was a perfect Christmas treat. Our Santa day was soooo super duper fun and magical. Top performance by the elves and Santa. We used Santa's Lapland as the organiser. Tunturi hotel was good and I just loved the bath room with an awesome sauna.
