Traveling safe and sound is always everyones wish but unexpected things cannot be avoided. Travellers do take their medicines needed for regular intake but sometimes we need some simple medicine like painkillers or antiseptics in emergency. The closest pharmacy is Ivalon Aptekki, which is in Ivalo about 30km from Saariselkä.
However, there is an over-the-counter(OTC) medicine section in the Supermarket Kuukkeli. Counter contains medicine that does not need prescription like pain relievers, cold treatments, and vitamins. The OTC is handled by a cashier in the restaurant kuukkeli.
You can write at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about the medicines OTC has.
Please note that customers are themselves responsible for understanding the medicine and its side-effects themselves before purchasing any medicine without prescription.
