Pallas - Enjoy skiing amidst a genuine Lappish fell landscape

Pallas is one of the fells belonging to a chain of a dozen or so magnificent peaks, stretching over a distance of more than 30 km from north to south. Taivaskero, the highest of these fell tops, is over 800 m high. The vertical distance covered by the ski lifts is approx. 340 m.

The slopes of Pallas are covered with natural snow and they provide enjoyable runs on the slopes and off-piste alike. A multitude of off-piste alternatives are within easy access of the ski lifts. Equipped with ski touring skis or cross-country skis, you can explore the vast open landscape of the national park – a stress-free adventure which is certainly worth undertaking! You can choose your own route to suit your taste, experience and ability, or you can join one of the touring groups of Pallaksen Pöllöt (the owls of Pallas), a local ski school. The weekly programme of the ski school offers a selection of free-of-charge guided activities. The Pallas peaks are generally considered to provide some of the best off-piste and free-riding opportunities in Finland, with something to suit every taste. The all-out free-rider will always find new sports for dashing down the mountain in long swooping turns. Beginner and intermediate skiers, likewise, will find easy enough slopes and slope sides for practising their skills. Useful tips on enhancing one’s skiing skills are provided by the ski school. Skiing is really not that difficult - just focus on continuous movements... And you can always try out telemarking, if you are in need of an extra challenge!

Pallas national park offers Lappish landscape at its most beautiful – peace for eye and mind alike

There are not that many people who, having once visited Pallas, will not return. In fact, most visitors come back year after year. Stress-free activities, which are out in the open and in relaxing company, are what visitors come back for in summer and winter alike. Lapland Hotel Pallas has provided accommodation services at Pallas since 1948. The cosy traditional ambience of the hotel foyer and the hotel library can tell a great number of stories of visitors of the past, many of whom have donated books and other things for coming visitors to enjoy. The weekly programme has been compiled on the basis of visitors' desires: you can opt from among a range of select activities, ranging from those that you do with your downhill skis to making pancakes. The ski touring excursions led by the ski school Pallaksen Pöllöt are among the most popular of these guided activities. A guided after-ski stretching session followed by a relaxing visit to a sauna is the perfect way to round off a day out in the open!
