How far is Hotel Kakslauttanen from Saariselka city centre?

We are considering getting married at the igloo village in Kakslauttanen but can anybody tell me how far it is from Saariselka city centre? While we are happy to pay the expensive rooms rates, we can't expect our guests to do the same. The cheapest accommodation at Kakslauttanen appears to be well over £100 per person per night while hotels in Saariselka city centre seem to start from just over £50 per room per night. Is it possible for us to stay at the igloo village and for our guests to stay in the city centre and just get a taxi to Kakslauttanen for the wedding?

Thanks

Hi,

Kakslauttanen is 10 km from Saariselkä.

Near (6 km) Kakslauttanen is hotel Kiilopää, not too expensive: http://www.kiilopaa.com/en/

4 km from Kakslauttanen (between Saariselkä and Kakslauttanen) is also hotel Laanihovi, quite simple but cosy hotel, prices from 45 euros per person. http://www.laanihovi.net/

There is also a free(?) skibus from Saariselka to Laanihovi, Kakslauttanen and Kiilopää. Taxi not too expencive either.

So the answer is yes, it is very possible.

Kakslauttenan is about 10 kms south of Saariselka and takes about 10 mins on the free ski bus that runs several times a day from Saariselka. The kakslauttenan hotel also has its own free bus that runs to and from Saariselka several times a day. if the timings were inconvenient I don't suppose a taxi will be too much as its not far. Saariselka is not even a town let alone a city but a pretty and uncommercialised village with several hotels, restaurants and gift shops. Kakkslauttenan is very beautiful too and the ice and glass igloos very novel. It is on the main road which is very quiet, hardly any cars with nothing but forests and lakes around. The hotel run all the usual trips, huskies, reindeer, snowmobiles etc or these can be booked at the many safari offices in saariselka. Hope this helps.

HI Alixx,

Saw your post - we married at the Kakslauttanen 2 years ago - it was amazing. I don't know if there is a PM facility on tripadvisor(?) but hopefully there is - if you have any questions at all about what to expect give me a shout, I'll be happy to help :-)

Good luck with all the planning!
