Ylläs is a traditional Lappish village at the foot of the natural, unspoiled 7 fells of Ylläs near the Swedish border. It truly is an untouched winter wonderland.
Ylläs is the perfect location for an unspoiled Lapland Snow Sports or Santa based holiday. It has quite a few cafe's, bars and local eateries but certainly not enough to take away from its tranquil location. The skies here are exceptionally clear which make it ideal for taking in the mysterious Northern Lights.
Ylläs combines everything necessary for an amazing Lapland experience and people return time after time to enjoy its beautiful natural scenery which you can experience through a huge choice of winter activities and safaris, including immersive reindeer, husky and snowmobile safaris.
It also plays host to Finland's longest ski slopes, a fantastic network of cross-country trails and an excellent range of accommodation, including a selection of idyllic high-quality log cabins
The resort has two genuine Lappish villages which you can visit too, Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi, which are only 15 minutes away by way of the regular ski shuttle buses.
