The mystical twilight and pure snow enchant the visitor and create the desire to experience it all over again. Ylläs is an experience, even if all you do is just listen to the silence of the surrounding pure nature.

If you want action or an evening program, Ylläs is ready for you. The new service centres on both ski resorts, Sport Resort Ylläs and Ylläs-Ski, were opened for the season 2008-2009. The Sauna gondola, the one and only in the world, invites you to have a unique sauna experience with a magnificent view!

The traditional villages of Ylläsjärvi and Äkäslompolo welcome you into their friendly Lappish atmosphere. Jounin Kauppa in Äkäslompolo is the greenest “village shop” in Finland. This means they have considered the environment in particular, when building the shop. It is, in effect, a shopping centre that is perfect for browsing, even on rainy days.

If you want winter action, take a reindeer or husky sledge ride, rent a snowmobile or enjoy the widest cross-country skiing tracks in Finland. 719 meters high, Ylläs invites you to also experience her perfect slopes!
