About the property

Ski Log Cabin in Akaslompolo, Yllas, Lapland, Finland - Peaceful Wooded Location, Close to all Amenities and Cross Country Ski Tracks

Our luxury log cabin is situated in a quiet wooded location in the beautiful and peaceful Lappish Ski resort of Akaslompolo. The cabin is very cosy with under-floor heating, a log fire in the living area, and has it's own sauna. Santa's house in the village is virtually next door, and the downhill ski slopes are 2km from the cabin, with a free bus service 10 minutes walk away. The supermarket and main facilities in the village are 1km from the cabin, and arguably the best restaurant in the village is 50 metres away, through the forest. The cross country ski tracks start outside the cabin door. The setting is magical in winter. Arctic hares can be seen in the snow through the windows, and there is a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights. In the summer, you can enjoy a drink in the midnight sun on the outside balcony, whilst watching reindeer in the forest

Guestbook comments from the owner

"we had an incredible time in Finland and in particular at the Aurora Cabin. It was warm, inviting and incredibly homely with plenty of storage areas. The extra bathroom was a gem when sharing with a group. The cabin was the perfect size with the mezzanine being incredibly spacious. We all felt like we could have our own space for down time if needed. We could have stayed far longer and have already been recommending the cabin to others"

"a well - equipped and clean cabin, excellent sauna, useful drying cabinet and a great location. all in all, we are very satisfied"

"just returned from our trip. It was just an amazing experience and we all very much enjoyed our weeks stay in your splendid log cabin. It was a very warm and cosy place to come back to after our cold days activities and we made good use of the sauna which was wonderful!"

We had the best family holiday - I'd recommend aurora cabin to anyone. It was easy to get keys and set up very well for us as a family - even with sledges outside waiting for keen snow explorers! Easy access to downhill and cross country skiing and close to places to book reindeer, snowmobile or husky safaris who will pick you up if you don't have a car. And the log burner and sauna kept us v snug! Everyone is so friendly and helpful - nothing was a problem - and we even saw the northern lights after a top tip from the owners to head onto the frozen lake. What a lifetime experience ! Thankyou

Yllas Akaslompolo log cabin

  • 5 of 5

Cabin - out of this world. Well maintained, spotless, plenty of room, superb facilities and excellent location. Customer service fantastic from arrival to departure.

Have already recommended this to a number of people.

Ski-ing, snow mobiling, sledging, and a visit to the Snow hotel, 12 miles away. Magic. Santas house and restaurant. Had santa visit the log cabin which was absolutely class, Im back to believing!!

All restaurants are great and children are especially well catered for.

The owner, Stephanie, was a pleasure to deal with and made everything easy.

I couldnt recommend this place enough, we had a holiday that dreams are made of.

Kittila airport is 30 minutes drive away from the cabin. During winter, charter flights operate to Kittila from Gatwick, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham. Scheduled flights operate via Helsinki. There are a number of budget airline options, with Ryanair flying to Tampere in southern Finland, or Stockholm, from where connecting flights north can be caught. The resort has good rail access try taking ‘The Santa Claus Express’ sleeper from Helsinki.

Further Details:

Akaslompolo has a great new Supermarket which is 1km from the cabin. There are a good range of restaurants, gift shops and a good Sports shop. Probably the best restaurant in the village is a short 50 metre walk from the cabin, through the trees. Yllas is a quiet resort with good facilities and amenities, ideal for a family holiday.

Yllas is also a great place to visit in summer. Opportunities for salmon fishing are superb, with 30lb fish not uncommon in the nearby Muonio river. Trout, sea trout, greyling and whitefish are also present in the smaller rivers and lakes. There are excellent local fishing guides available. Akaslompolo is centred around a lake, which makes it ideal for boating, swimming and fishing in the summer months. There are hundreds of kilometres of walking tracks, and mountain biking is becoming increasingly popular in the area. There are also opportunities for pony treking in the summer months.
