Ylläshumina Hotel is, in our opinion, the best accommodation in Ylläs. Usually, this translates as the most upmarket or most expensive, and, in correlation, the most stuffy. However, this does not apply to the  Ylläshumina - a welcoming hotel, with a home-from- home ambiance. The restaurant is magnificent, the rooms are stylish and the traditional Lapp sauna is the perfect place to relax both mind and body after a day on the slopes. Followed by a quick pint at the Humina pub - the best place in the village for drinks and snacks. 

There are three types of room, all spaced across pleasantly expansive grounds; Standard Rooms are in log cabins close to the main building (two to a block), larger self-contained Apartments sleep 4/5 guests and newer, magnificent Superior Rooms have living rooms, fancy fireplaces, chic bathrooms and modern furnishings. 

This is a hotel popular with the cross-country set, and they host many guests from Central Europe (Swiss, Austrians...etc) who come to Finland for the wide open spaces. Downhill skiers play second fiddle, but there is easy access to the slopes on the ski bus.
