Ylläs is all about the cross-country skiing. If you've never had a go, then this is your moment.

Take your skis off and there is still a world of adventure beckoning. You are on the edge of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park - fells surrounded by forests and mires in an absolutely pristine state. Everything is about the outdoors - snowmobiles have 250 miles of marked  tracks and local safari companies arrange all sorts of guided tours. Husky safaris will allow you to mush your own dog team in to the wilderness. Reindeer can be seen on the main road of Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi villages and its possible to go on a traditional reindeer sleigh ride or even visit a traditional reindeer herder.

It's even possible to go  swimming....in the frozen lakes in Ylläs! Usually starting off in the lake side sauna, you then walk just a few meters to an ice hole, after cooling off you then head back to the sauna again. Take socks. Trust us.
