Ylläs is Finish Lapland, stunning natural beauty and magical atmosphere - famous for its 'blue light' in the day and the northern lights at night.

Ylläs, pronounced `U-las`, consists of seven fells and two original Sami villages; Akaslompolo village is located on the northern side of the the Ylläs fell and Yllasjarvi village on the southern side. Both have a range of local bars and restaurants and a free ski bus to the lifts.

In Ylläs you can feel the original Lappish atmosphere: in most hotels and cafes you are served by a second or third generation of families.

The crisp, dry climate ensures snow reliability right through one of the longest ski seasons. Whether you're looking for an action-packed week of skiing and adventures, or something a little more relaxing, Ylläs can offer both. Its uncrowded, floodlit slopes are ideal for beginners and intermediates, while the sheer choice of activities means you can try things you've only ever dreamed of.

The ski season begins in October and lasts until May. The sun does not rise in winter until late January, when temperatures can be as low as -40ºC although there is adequate daylight. However when cold, its normally a dry cold which is comfortable for periods so long as adequate thermal skiwear is worn. By March the days are longer than in the Alps and in May, when daylight approaches 24 hours, the slopes are still open when most northern hemisphere ski areas are closed.

You can now try the fantastic Arctic adventure resort of Ylläs in magical Lapland. This resort is one of the largest ski areas in Finland with uncrowded queues and a great choice of winter activities to try. A great choice for families, Ylläs is a full service ski and sport resort with an eye to the future and a new gondola lift will be open for December 2007.

Ylläs is the home to the longest runs in Finland. With 58 slopes and 27 lifts Ylläs is the largest resort in Lapland and Finland. Ylläs also has two ski schools, one in both villages. The ski schools provide slalom-, cross country skiing-, telemark skiing-, off-piste skiing- and snowboarding lessons.
