Overview - hotel description - Santa Adventure Week Yllas description

It's every child's dream to meet Santa, and their dreams can come true in the stunning resort of Ylläs. On our Santa Adventure Week, you and the kids can go on an adventure to the Elves' Secret Hideaway to meet the man himself where he'll give every child a present and tell lots of magical stories. You'll also get to race through the wilderness on your very own snowmobile, and see the pretty Lappish sights on a sleigh pulled by a team of fluffy huskies. And if that's not enough, you could even head up the mountain to do some skiing - there is lots of snow, after all.

For the week you'll be staying at the lavish and modern Hotel Saaga, which is located in the centre of Ylläs, making it easy to get around. All the rooms are spacious and well-decorated, all with amazing views.

When you're not fast asleep or on one of our activities, you can entertain yourself in the hotel in either the indoor swimming pool or spa - the kids have their own pool and play area too, just in case you need a rest - or chill out with a drink in the lounge, complete with working fireplace.

Breakfast is a hearty affair too, with a hot and cold buffet breakfast each morning, and if you want to save the pennies for a few treats for the kids, you can choose to upgrade to half board, so dinners are taken care of too.

Meet Santa at the Elves' Secret Hideaway
Duration 3 hours.
This elvish adventure is fantastic fun for all the family, especially when you get to meet the man himself - Santa. Journey from Levi to the beautiful hideaway village - with a winding river, snow-covered forest and gorgeous themed buildings, it looks like it's been plucked from the pages of a storybook. You'll be free to choose how you spend your time there, from a whole range of Christmassy activities. Go toboganning, kick-sledding or for a reindeer ride. Play elf football or take a snowmobile train ride. Budding artists can have a go at making Christmas decorations or baking gingerbread biscuits - and when you're hungry, you can fry sausages over an open fire or visit the cafeteria to take your pick from the free buffet. This is a truly unique experience that kids and adults alike will talk about for years to come.

Husky Safari (5km)
Duration 2 hours.
An adventurous journey through the wilderness with friendly husky dogs, who really love to run. After this speedy experience, sip hot berry juice while listening to interesting stories about the daily life of these lovely barking animals. This excursion is done by car.

Snowmobile Safari to Wilderness
Duration 2 hours.
Ride a snowmobile and admire the snow-covered landscape of Lapland, through forests and over frozen lakes. The guide will tell you all about the nature around you, and the safari is great fun for all, young and old, beginners and experienced drivers alike.

On the days where you're not taking part in an activity, you could try downhill skiing, cross-country skiing or one of the many other activities on offer in resort such as a trip to the Snow Village, a visit to the reindeer farm, snowshoeing or attempting to see the Northern Lights.

Please note: Days and times of the activities will be confirmed by your rep in resort and will be arranged around any ski/board tuition you have booked.

This holiday is not available for departures on the 3rd January 2017. Holidays departing on this date are considered 'short breaks', meaning that there will not be enough time to complete all the activities included in the price.

This gorgeous Lapland resort (pronounced “U-las”) has welcomed skiers since the 1930’s 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,...
With 53km 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...
