FREEDOM TO CHOOSE The untouchable side of the fell or the velvety track of a snowcat? In Ylläs a skier can choose the downhill route as he/she wishes. Ylläs and the untamed fells nearby have provided entertainment for both adventurers and sensualists for 60 years.

YLLÄS - THE MOST VERSATILE CENTRE IN FINLAND The 63 maintained hills provide several downhill tracks for skiers of all levels in Ylläs. If you’re looking for thick snow, there are magnificent off-piste points which to go in all directions. In the fells of a nearby National Park there are hills ranging from cosy snow fields to abrupt walls for more experienced off-piste skiers.

Lapland Hotel Saaga is located uphill in Ylläs-fell at the same side as Ylläs-lake. Saaga is a true ski-in - ski-out destination: a gondola will take skiers from their backyard straight to the top of the fell and in some of the rooms there is access through the terrace straight to the hills. The hotel views are magnificent, with the fell sitting on the horizon. After a day in the hill you can pamper both body and mind in the spa.

The world of snow and ice are combined in a magical way in Lapland Hotel Snow Village. The hotel complex, located half way between Ylläs and Levi, is full of breath-taking snow and ice art and is a sight worth seeing in its own right. A night at the Snowhotel, surrounded by beautifully lit ice-sculptures and thick snow walls is definitely something you’ll never forget!

SUPER SKI PASS The west-Lapland joint ticket, SuperSkiPass enables limitless skiing in Ylläs, Olos, Pallas and Levi. According to this, if you have a 6-day-ticket or longer, or a seasonal pass to Ylläs, you can use it for one day in Olos and also in Pallas during it’s validity.

Lapland Hotel Äkäshotelli can provide accommodation for all tastes: hotel rooms, holiday apartments and log cabins. The brightest stars in Finnish music are performing on the legendary Pirtukirkko stage throughout the spring season. Some of the gigs are also available for those under 18. Lift ticket sales

Winter Cycling is growing in popularity in Ylläs, which is not surprising, because the large tyres on fat bikes are perfect for traversing the snowy tundra. The thick stable tyres make the ride smooth and pleasant even on rough or soft ground and fat biking is quickly becoming a must-do winter sport. This season, there are already 70 km of prepared winter fat bike trails in Ylläs and the winter cycling network is set to expand over the following seasons.

Snowshoeing is a great and popular way to explore the seven fells of Ylläs and it is easy to rent snowshoes at any of the sport shops. Winter sports maps, which you can also find at the Kellokas ­Visitor Centre, show all the marked snow shoe paths, around 80 km in total. Adventurous walkers can, of course find their own routes on the fells, but when going off the marked trails it is important to u ­ nderstand the prevailing weather and snow conditions, and carry a map, compass and snacks, as well as spare clothing and a mobile phone.
