Dotted in-between the trees at the bottom of the Ylläs fell are the Äkäs Cabins. The authentic Scandinavian-style cabins, with rustic log cladding, give the accommodation a real Christmas-card feel. All of the lodges have their own private sauna for you to relax in, as well as a log burning fireplace, so you can sit up late, swapping stories and toasting marshmallows. And as all the cabins are located in woodland, the tranquil seclusion will allow you to feel at one with nature.
But with the main Äkäshotelli building only a short walk away, you won’t be far from the rest of civilisation. On your walks to and from the hotel, you might spot a few wild reindeer, or if you take a stroll down to the Äkäslompolo Lake at night, you may catch a glimpse of the astounding Northern Lights. And if you’re looking for the adrenaline of the slopes, don’t despair - the ski bus stops right outside of the hotel and takes you to the Ylläs ski lifts.
If you decide to upgrade, in the mornings you can head over to the hotel restaurant and grab a hearty and healthy breakfast at the buffet - though our favourite is the waffle maker, so maybe not so healthy after all. And if you don’t fancy eating in the cabin every evening, the village has a variety of restaurants serving up traditional Lappish cuisine like sautéed reindeer. If you just want to get in some drinks or snacks, the nearest supermarket, Jounin Kauppa, is only a short walk from the hotel.
And remember to take advantage of all the hotel’s facilities. Dive in to the indoor swimming pool, or unwind with a massage after a day out in the sub zero temperatures. Or take part in the daily activities Lapland Safaris puts on for the hotel, like cross-country skiing or snow safaris. Whatever you choose to do, indoors or out, we guarantee you’ll look forward to snuggling down to sleep at night in your little cabin in the woods.
