I spent a winter week here in March, was a great experience, snow shoeing, husky sledding, cross country skiing, ice climbing and more. The staff were great - enthusiastic and keen to show off the site to its best. The cook was in hospital, so the other staff all chipped in for Oulanka's 'experimental kitchen' which 9 times out of 10 was excellent - especially as what we needed from dinner was bulk and heat after a day's activity.
To the reviewer who complained of no internet/tv and a 50m walk to reception I'd suggest that you picked the wrong place to stay - the whole point of Oulanka for me was that it was away from the chatter of an urban life, and all the more relaxing for it. Definitely recommend if you want to put in some effort and enjoy a pristine wilderness.
