The slopes of the Yllästunturi Mountain sit just metres away from the modern Lapland Hotel Saaga. Standing in the tree line of the mountain, this well-kept, modern hotel provides fabulous views of the fell and other scenery whatever time of day it is. And even if you’re not planning to ski or snowboard down the slopes, going in the gondola up the mountain means that you can experience the most wonderful views of Ylläs with a mug of hot chocolate from the ice-crusted cafe.
With 84 spacious rooms all featuring modern amenities, but maintaining their traditional Nordic-style wood finish, your stay at the Saaga is nothing more than luxurious. All rooms provide fantastic sights of the wintery landscape and wonderful sunsets from the distant horizon, so you will always have something about Ylläs to admire.
The Saaga houses 3 high-quality restaurants, so you have a wide variety of tastes to choose from. The Buffet restaurant caters for half boarders, and there’s something for everyone from their hearty breakfasts to their satisfying dinners, but if you fancy something more sophisticated, you can head over to the à la carte restaurant to try something more unusual. The Bistro also serves food in a more relaxed setting, where you can also get through a drink or two to warm you up after a long day. The Fireplace bar serves up a variety of drinks for your après ski, and you can enjoy them chatting around the crackling fire. The chefs and bar staff alike are happy to accommodate you if you have any specific needs, so don’t be afraid to ask.
But if you start to feel guilty after that massive meal you can head down to the hotel gym, equipped with cardio and weighted equipment. Or if you want to carry on treating yourself, you can savour the lavish experience in Saaga’s revitalising spa. Stone walls outline the swimming pool area, and the relaxing lighting perfectly sets the mood. You can enjoy peaceful isolation in the cave Jacuzzi© while the kids mess around with the crocodile in the kids’ pool. With single sex saunas and steam rooms available too, you can reach ultimate relaxation without having to look far for it.
