Overview - hotel description - Hotel Saaga description

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 views of the wintery landscape and wonderful sunsets from the distant horizon, so you'll always have something to admire.

The Saaga houses three high-quality restaurants, so you have a wide variety of tastes to choose from. The buffet restaurant has something for everyone, from hearty breakfasts to satisfying dinners. 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 get through a warming drink or two after a long day. The Fireplace Bar also serves up a variety of drinks to enjoy whilst 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.

If you start to feel guilty after that massive meal you can pay a little extra for access to the wellness centre, which has a gym equipped with cardio and weighted equipment. Or, if you want to carry on treating yourself, you can enjoy peaceful isolation in the cave Jacuzzi®. There are single sex saunas and steam rooms available too, so you can reach ultimate relaxation. It's free to use the swimming pool, where the stone walls and relaxing lighting perfectly sets the mood.

This gorgeous Lapland resort (pronounced “U-las”) has welcomed skiers since the 1930s 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, b...
With 63km 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...
