Only minutes from the centre of Äkäslompolo is the beautifully alpine-styled Lapland Äkäshotelli. It's surrounding by acres of woodland, which makes it the perfect tranquil base for all your snow adventures. The ski shuttles leave regularly from outside the entrance to the hotel and drop you at the Ylläs ski lifts, and there are loads of excursions available so you can explore and experience every wonderful part of Lapland.
The modest rooms with simple and traditional furnishings are a welcoming contrast to the freezing temperatures. But with the gorgeous Lappish scenery just outside your window, you won’t be further from home. In the mornings, head down to the hotel restaurant for a buffet breakfast to keep you going for the day.
Lapland Safaris arrange loads of excursions for the hotel, from snow safaris to dog sledding, and for those up for a challenge, cross country skiing. And don’t forget to walk down to the Äkäslompolo Lake one evening to try and catch a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights – a once in a lifetime experience.
But after a fun filled day outdoors, the hotel itself has loads more things to keep you occupied. It houses an indoor pool and a sauna to help you relax and revitalise. If you've still got energy to burn, there’s a fitness room too. Occasional evening entertainment is also a great aspect of this hotel, from discos to live music. So when the day draws to a close and you’re exhausted from all the excitement, you can head back up to your room and dream about all the amazing things you’ve done that day.
