Nostalgic Telemark on hills in tundra

Nostalgic Telemark on hills in tundra

Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park  is geologically located between Northern Finland, Forest Finland and Fell Lapland. It is dominated by a fell chain surrounded by forests and mires in their natural state.The most southern fell of the fell chain within the national park is Ylläs and in the north you will face the pictoresque beauty of Pallastunturi.

There are 9 slopes in the ski resort area and in total 200 kilometers of cross-country ski-tracks.The longest ski route takes you 50 kilometers from Pallas to Hetta. Some of the ski-tracks enter the National Park area.  Near the hotel there are 3,5 and 10 kilometer tracks

Hotel Pallas  was originally built in 1938, just befor the World War II. In 1941-1944 the hotel was used as a holiday center for the German soldiers but when they had to back off, they blew it up. The present hotel was opened in 1948. It's owners have been wise to keep the shabby old look and feel of the past decennies. This destination is ideal for nostalgic type of skiing - telemark, back-country and ski touring.

Telemark  is a traditional Norwegian fell skiing style, in which the heel of the ski boot is able to go up and down. This makes it possible to use the skies for all the necessary actions: ski up the fell, ski down, turn and jump as well. Telemark-skiers make their turn by bending one knee to the snow as they shift their balance to the donwhill ski. The motion is continuous and smooth.

Cross-country skiing  in Pallas takes place on the hills. The network of maintained ski-tracks in Pallas area is 200km. You can make long, enjoyable ski tours on the Arctic hills.

Pallas Ski school has a unique way of working. Every morning from Sun to Fri there is a morning info at 9am. At 10am on Sun-Tue and Thu-Fri there is a free guided ski tour and almost every day also another free evetnt for the hotel guests. 

This package can be combined with a one week cottage rental in Ylläs or an apartment in Levi!
