Overview - hotel description - Akas Cabins description

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.

This package holiday to Akas Cabins in Yllas, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 10th January 2021, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

This gorgeous Lapland resort (pronounced “U-las”) has welcomed skiers since the 1930’s and is the biggest of the 35 ski areas in Finland, home to the country’s longest slope, the 3km Jättipitkä run (which translates to ‘enormously long’!). The resort is split into two villages on either side of the region’s highest “fell” - a smooth mountain rising above the treeline. Both villages have remained true to their roots - Ylläsjärvi in the south and Äkäslompolo in the north – and both are authentic,...
With 53km of downhill slopes, the skiing is fairly compact although over 300km of designated tracks make this one of the best cross-country destinations in the world. The uncrowded, perfectly groomed slopes are a beginner’s dream and make learning to ski a fun and relaxing experience. The ski schools meet on both sides of the mountain and speak excellent English with group lessons normally having small class sizes to give a personal feel. Early intermediates will love the wide, cruising runs which are perf...
Both villages are sleepy and traditional so while there are nice places to go for a drink, those looking for a European party scene might be somewhat disappointed. The focus is more on relaxation and entertainment away from the slopes of which there’s more than enough to keep all ages very happy. The Akäs hotel is most popular for a few drinks with a dance floor and club inside, while the restaurants in the resort serve all kinds of local delicacies – reindeer and freshly caught fish are both highly recommend...
