In the village of Äkäslompolo, backed by the glorious Ylläs Mountains, are the Äkäs Apartments. The apartments are separate to the main Äkäshotelli hotel building, providing a magical experience for the whole family - especially with the wild reindeer that roam around just outside your window. It's just a short walk to the main building, and a short bus ride to the ski lifts so you’ll never be far from all the excitement of slopes.
The Äkäs apartments are great if you look forward to cosy evenings in. With fully equipped kitchens, you don’t have to worry about putting back on your snow suit to walk over to the main hotel for food. Instead you can whip up some yummy home cooked meals that you know the kids won’t moan about. The local supermarket, Jounin Kauppa, is also only a short walk away so you can stock up on essentials and goodies for your stay.
The main hotel offers occasional evening entertainment and, if you fancy a drink you don’t have to make yourself, the lobby bar has a variety of flavours to suit your mood. Or if you’ve been knocked about a bit from a day of sledding with the kids, then take a relaxing swim in the hotel pool, or soothe your muscles in the sauna.
If you want to explore Ylläs without your skis, then there’s a library of activities on offer. If you’re a dog lover, then there’s the husky sled rides. If you have the need for speed, there are snowmobiles excursions. Or if you want to be amazed, then visit to the Snow Village and have a nose around the Ice Hotel. At Christmas, there's a chance for the kids to meet Santa, too.
