ABOUT YLLÄS

Located on both sides of the Yllästunturi fell, the villages of Ylläsjärvi and Äkäslompolo offer a good basecamp for nature experiences all year round. In winter, the ski slopes and snowy landscapes are a paradise for travelers in search of thrilling adventures like snowshoe treks, snowmobile safaris, skiing… In summer and autumn, hikers and paddle-lovers can explore the beautiful quiet landscapes of the national park at their own pace.

Overall, Ylläs is a destination recommended to those who want to experience Lapland independently or away from the crowd of Rovaniemi. The closest airport in Kittilä is just 30 min away from Ylläsjärvi, which also makes it quite an accessible destination from Helsinki. A lot of hotels and cottages can accomodate travellers, but it is recommended to book in advance in Winter.
