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...

"The apartments are fabulous and the facilities are excellent."

Laura Eddy, Leicestershire
5/ out of 5
Inside our apartment was nice and spacious, nothing like you’d get in France! We had quite large living and kitchen areas and big rooms. Having 2 bedrooms for the 5 of us was just amazing and you also have your very own personal sauna in your room which is fab to come back to at the end of the day! The whole place was very well equipped and it was all very chic and modern. The facilities were fab and you had swimming pool access as well. We were all invited to a gala dinner on Christmas day when Father Christmas made an appearance for the children and they had games and quizzes. We also went for a reindeer ride on Christmas day which was fantastic. From a skiing perspective, the apartments are very close to the lifts which was our primary reason for going. There’s a tiny little supermarket under the hotel but the main supermarket is about 10 minutes away by taxi, so bear in mind you’ll have to go further out a few times for food.
