The Saaga is really nice, it’s quite new and modern but with cosy log fires and the overall atmosphere is pretty quiet and relaxing.

This package holiday to Yllas Saaga Spa Hotel in Yllas, Finland / Lapland departs Sunday 12th February 2023, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" 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 15/16 was between 50p and £2 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...
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...

"Relaxed log fires, pool and jacuzzi + nice bar"

Colin, Ealing
4/ out of 5
The Saaga is really nice, it’s quite new and modern but with cosy log fires and the overall atmosphere is pretty quiet and relaxing. The food was nice and everyone in the hotel was really friendly – lots of Brits! We used the steam room, the swimming pool and the Jacuzzis which were all good, especially if you want to relax after skiing. There’s a hut down the little road but the hotel itself has a really nice bar if you want a few drinks. Our room was nice and spacious, all the rooms have balconies and on the side of the hotel we stayed on you could see right across the little street which wound further down. I think you got the view up into the mountains if your room was on the other side. I stayed here with friends and would say it’s best for couples or smaller groups. There weren’t many families when we were here but we didn’t stay over any school holidays, I expect over Christmas there might be more families here who want to meet Father Christmas in Lapland!
