Family Log Cabin with activities spring, Ylläs

Family Log Cabin with activities spring, Ylläs

New and cozy, centrally located log cabin with own kicthen and sauna is a great choice for a family holiday in northern Lapland. The Äkäslompolo village is the original Lappish village on the northern side of the Ylläs hill with excellent services, activity selection and opportunities for skiing.

Ylläs  is the largest ski resort in Finland. The Ylläs hill itself is 719m high. There are two villages, one on the northern side called Äkäslompolo and one on the southern side called Ylläsjärvi. Äkäslompolo is the original ski village. From both sides you have equal access to the slopes. By skiing the Finns understand cross-country skiing, which takes place on ski-tracks in nature. In Ylläs area there are alltogether 330 kilometers of ski-tracks, out of which 38 kilometers are illuminated. When it is not too cold, it is nice to take a day tour and ski slowly from ski café to ski café.    

If you have downhill skiing in mind, you could not choose a better destination in Finland as Ylläs is the biggest ski resort with its 63 slopes, 20 ski lifts and 53 slope kilometers.

In February the days are often sunny but it might be very cold. For activities you will get extra warm overalls, boots, gloves and hats but for skiing you should be prepared with winter clothes. It is best to dress in layers: thermal underwear first, then fleece middleswear and then winter outfit on top. 100% woollen socks are necessary. Please note that often morning are colder than the afternoons but some days might be freezing. That is why it is better to have some flexibility in schedule.

There are two cozy log cabins sharing the same yard. The smaller one is brand new,  built in 2016 and has 4 beds. The bigger was built in 1990 but got a new kitchen in 2014. The cottages are rented separately but if you book both of them, you can accommodate 14 people comfortably. Location is excellently close to the centre of the Äkäslompolo village but yet in its own peace with a bigger cottage next to it.

Activities included:

1. Mon 12.30pm / Husky safari 16km in the National Park of Ylläs-Pallas

The unique landscape of Ylläs is something to cherish. Therefore this safari is planned and produced in a most environmental friendly way. The speciality of this safari is that the trails go in National Park, in the middle of untouchable nature! This unforgettable and amazing experience starts from the Husky farm, where we will meet the dogs and get the instructions how to mush the Husky team. After we will take off with our teams and drive through snow-covered forests and over open plains. Half way we will stop to make a campfire and we will make sausages and have a hot drink. In this safari, snowmobiles are not used, the guides will also ride the Husky sledges.

2. Skiing: cross-country skiing or downhill skiing

We have included in the package rental cross-country skies for 5 days starting Tuesday. Alternatively you can choose downhill ski set for 3 days for the same money. 5 days would cost 26,25€ more/person. For downhilll skiing you would need additionally to buy lift tickets: 3 days 95€/person, 5 days 139€/person. Ski school 90min (same style for the whole group) is included in price.

3. Thu at 6pm / Aurora snowmobiling safari, 20-25km 2h

The Northern Lights take place in the sky in the Arctic and Antarctic regions in clear, dark nights. This safari will lead us to the wilds to observe them. During the safari we will have a break for a warm drink beside an open fi re. In case the Northern Lights are not visible, we can just admire the beautiful scenery and listen to the guide telling us about the ancient stories and beliefs of the Northern Lights.

4. Sat at 3pm / Snowshoeing safari 2h

Snowshoe hiking opens up a whole new world of fun for winter visitors. Strap these somewhat cumbersome devices on your feet, and they will take you stomping safely through the snow-covered countryside. Then just keep walking!
