Escape to Finnish Lapland on this exclusive getaway to Skábma, a 14-bed premium log cabin ideally situated near Urho Kekkonen National Park and just 15 minutes walk from the centre of Saariselkä. In Sámi, Skábma means polar night. The name was chosen to represent the loghouse because, in the north, these long nights are associated with finding joy in the simple things in life, like sitting by the fireplace, lighting candles and being pampered. These values are at the heart of Skábma's philosophy and exactly what guests can expect from their stay.
The daily rhythm at the cabin is dictated by the pure and untamed nature that sits right on the doorstep. There are 35 polar nights and 59 days of the midnight sun a year, with the shimmering spring snow and arresting autumn colours in between. Whether you are exploring a winter wonderland by by dog sled, snowmobile, snowshoes or skies; or fishing on the pristine lakes, foraging in the lush forests or hiking through the verdant fells in the spring and summer, each season offers unique and unforgettable moments under the northern sky. Relish the knowledge that, after a therapeutic day spent in the refreshing arctic air, you get to return to Skábma to rest and rejuvenate in your exclusive hideaway.
Within the picturesque timber walls you will find 6 delightful double/twin bedrooms and one junior suite with its own balcony. Each room boasts en-suite facilities and there are two saunas to ensure a relaxing stay. The elegant and rustic decor lends itself to an atmosphere of tranquillity and harmony, with generous spaces for socialising, including a kitchen, lounge and dinning room. Choose to self-cater, enjoy the local restaurants in Saariselkä, or for something truly memorable, opt to include a private dinner prepared by your very own chef right from the comforts of your home-away-from-home.
The opportunities are endless. Speak to your Regent Lapland specialist about booking Skábma Log Cabin for your perfect family or group holiday.
