Overview: apartment description: Äkäs Alp Apartments description

The highly recommended Äkäs Alp Apartments are situated in the traditional unspoilt Lappish community of Äkäslompolo in a scenic and peaceful wooded location. They are owned and managed by the adjacent atmospheric and friendly Äkäs Hotel (100m away) and represent an excellent quality self-catering option.

Miles of cross-country ski trails start from the door and the hotel's popular bar, dance floor, restaurant and night club form the hub of local entertainment.

The ski bus (free to hotel and apartment guests) leaves from the hotel, and the village centre, with its well-stocked supermarket, restaurants and bars, is a 5-10 minutes' walk away (500m).

This package holiday to Äkäs Alp Apartments in Yllas, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 16th February 2025, 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 2024 was between €1 and €3 per person, per night.

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...

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.
