Ylläs offers exquisite nature, unique accommodations, and great possibilities for outdoor activities in summer.
Ylläs, the largest ski resort in Finland, transforms into the country's biggest bike park in the summer and offers the highest sauna in Finland atop Yllästunturi Fell. However, Ylläs, located in the western part of Lapland, 160 kilometres north of Rovaniemi, has much more to offer.
You can reach Ylläs by flying to Kittilä, which is about 45 kilometres east of Ylläs. Alternatively, you can take the train to Kolari and then transfer to a bus or taxi for the remaining 43 kilometres. The Ylläs area comprises two Lappish villages: Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi, both of which are worth visiting.
