Overview - hotel description - Saaga Apartments description

Waking up in the morning and knowing you’re only a couple of minutes from the slopes is the dream – and with the Saaga Apartments, it can be a reality.

Nestled in the tree line of the Yllästunturi fell, these spacious and luxurious chalet-style apartments are also within walking distance to the gondola, ski school and nursery slopes.

All 95 of them are fitted with traditional Nordic wooden-clad feature walls, contemporary wooden flooring and a variety of modern furnishings. When you’ve returned after a day on the slopes, you can escape to your own private sauna to cleanse and relax.

Staying here means that you can take everything at your own pace. Breakfast in bed and dinner in front of the TV – it’s up to you. If you do fancy a break from cooking, take a quick walk to the Hotel Saaga’s restaurant and bar to try some traditional Finnish cuisine.

You can also take advantage of the spa and wellness facilities inside the hotel, which, depending on the block you're staying in, are either connected to the apartments, or a short walk away. It’s free to swim some laps in the indoor pool, or relax in the hot tub and saunas, but any treatments or massages cost a little more. There’s also a games room, so your little ones can get stuck into some video games or make friends over table hockey.

The skiing is great, plus Ylläs also has plenty of other amazing activities on offer. Visit the Snow Village, where architects construct whole buildings out of the white stuff. Or you can take a trip to Konijänka’s petting zoo or go on a reindeer sleigh ride.

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...
