These cosy, traditional open-plan log cabins, are in the most scenic and peaceful, wooded location in the unspoiled Lappish village of Äkäslompolo.
Staying here you'll be close to all the local amenities. The Äkäs Hotel, a hub of local entertainment, has a popular bar, dance floor, restaurant and night club. It's about five minute's walk from the cabins and where you'll enjoy your meals if you opt for half board. For those staying self-catered each cabin has a small kitchenette and the well-stocked supermarket is about 10-15 minute walk away.
The cross-country ski trails start from just outside the cabins, around 314 kilometres of ski tracks wind through the surrounding snowy landscape surrounding Ylläs. The downhill ski area is reached in a few minutes by ski bus (payable locally) which gives you access to a variety of different slopes. Skiing in Lapland is a unique experience, you can ski around the pristine pistes, and even have a go at night skiing earlier in the winter season - the pistes are generally open until late afternoon but are floodlit so the slopes stay open even after sundown.
During your break, check out some of our fantastic optional extras available from Ylläs. Whizz through the snowy fells by snowmobile, or enjoy a husky safari through the forest, you can even book an overnight excursion in the Ice Hotel.
Spa and relaxation
No Finnish holiday is complete with out experiencing the sauna and these cabins do not disappoint - each one has a private sauna for you to come back to relax in after days out exploring. The cabins also have a fireplace, so you can warm up in the comfort of your own cabin after a day of skiing, snowmobiling or sledding through the wilderness. In addition to this you'll have free use of the swimming pool, saunas and fitness room in the Äkäs Hotel.
