Our Ylläs Log Cabins make a perfect base for your winter wonderland holiday to Ylläs. Staying here you'll be based around the small village of Äkäslompolo. Each of our cabins are dotted around the surrounding area - some are close to the centre while others are more remote, amongst the snow covered trees. The cabins rage from around 250-1000 metres (5-30 min walk) to the the main excursion meeting point at the Akas Hotel, which is near the centre of the village.

Cosy log cabins

Wake up to blankets of snow surrounding your very own log cabin. It's one of the most authentic ways to experience Finnish Lapland. Up here in the arctic circle they've mastered heating and insulating the cabins - plus each one has its own private sauna and fireplace, for the ultimate cosy experience. They all vary in appearance and location. Some are built from round pine logs, others are more modern and are made using flat planed log. They all adjoin another cabin and can be terraced, end of terrace or semi-detached.

Eat in or dine out

Our cabins are available self-catered or with an optional half board upgrade. They're all well-equipped with kitchen facilities and a dining table - making them a great choice for families looking to stay self-catered. There's an excellent, well-stocked supermarket in the village centre, along with cafes, shops and restaurants. You'll also have the choice to upgrade to half board, where you can enjoy hearty buffet style breakfasts and dinners in the Akas Hotel restaurant.

All of our Log Cabins have shower, WC, sauna, fireplace (wood included), TV, VCR or DVD, vacuum, iron, drying closet and washing machine. Bed linen and towels included, beds to be made up on arrival.

Your Itinerary

3 nights Sunday to Wednesday.
4 nights Wednesday to Sunday.

Day 1

Your Santa Breaks Reps will be waiting at Kittilä airport to warmly welcome you to Lapland and bring you, by coach, to your accommodation. Shortly after arriving in Ylläs, you will collect your complimentary thermal suits and boots, which you will keep for the duration of your stay. There will be plenty of time to explore your snowy surroundings, build snowmen, find a toboggan and throw those snowballs. Join us for a welcome get-together to help you plan your activities for the next few days - see below for options.

Day 2

Today is the day! The time has come to meet the big man himself. A magical jaunt is in store with a visit to Santa's Elves Hideaway. Here each family will enjoy an exclusive private meeting with Santa - make sure you’ve written your letters! You can also take part in supervised festive games, cook sausages on an open fire, help the elves bake gingerbread biscuits and try making your own decorations in Elf School. Outdoors you can meet Comet the Reindeer, catch the snowmobile train (on the hunt to find Santa) or have great fun tobogganing in the snow. All children will receive a small gift - souvenirs that can be treasured for years.

Day 3

Make the most of your stay by booking our exciting and excellent-value optional excursions. Perhaps a combined husky and reindeer farm visit with sleigh rides in the morning, followed by an exhilarating family-friendly snowmobile safari in the afternoon. Alternatively, wander around the local shops collecting souvenirs or relax and enjoy a sauna at your accommodation in true Finnish style!

On Your Last Night

Get ready for a Festive Feast! An evening of party games and a disco. Tuck into a buffet of traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner plus Lappish specialities.

Please note that the Festive Feast takes place on Day 4 for guests staying 4 nights.

Day 4 (for 4 night guests only!)

Today you can choose whether to book additional winter activities and safaris or try a few hours skiing on the wide, uncrowded Ylläs slopes. Pre-book our exclusive 'ski taster' package to give it a go. Perhaps you would prefer to wander around the local craft shops (if staying in Äkäslompolo) or simply play in the snow. Then get ready for your Festive Feast in the evening (see Day 3 for details). After dinner, perhaps the Northern Lights will appear for that perfect end to your holiday.

Day 5 (or day 4 for 3 night guests)

After a magical few days, it’s time to say goodbye to your new friends before being transferred by coach to the airport for your flight home.

Please note the above itinerary may vary according to arrival and departure times. Other activities such as horse-sleigh rides and visits to the Snow Hotel (from mid-Dec) may also be available locally.
