I have made the comments on the winter/outdoor resort Saariselka and ivalo airport, not Ivalo village itself. Saariselka is dream destination for cross-country skiiers and those looking for a holiday in a stunning environment, the moon landscape of tundra is awsome! Lots to do in the winter even for those who do not ski down hill nor cross country or snow board; snowmobiles over the tundra, husky rides and excusions, show shoe walking, beautiful nature, good restaurants and bars, lots of traditioinal finnish dance. GO! I go every year and have recently bought a small apartment there. LOVE IT!
