We stayed at the Vaattunki Wilderness Resort using a package that included breakfast, dinner, and some activities. We had a spectacular time and enjoyed the resort facilities, staff, and everything we did. The food was wonderful and the resort staff was both friendly and helpful. The great thing about the resort was that many of the activities were on site. If you are looking for night life, you should stay in town; but if you want to enjoy winter in Finland, this is a beautiful setting to enjoy.
