Excellent for all ability levels with refreshment huts and unlimited trails in wonderful scenery.
Ylläs is a cross-country skier’s paradise. It has 330kms of trails prepared for both classic and skating styles. 38kms of these are floodlit. Many of the tracks take you into the spectacular scenery of Pallas-Ylläs National Park where Lapland’s pristine nature is carefully preserved. The trails range in elevation between 190 and 540 metres, including so-called “warm tracks” where it might be as much as 15 degrees warmer than down in the village due to the temperature inversion. There is a wonderful variety of tracks for all skier levels which easily allow for routes to be lengthened or shortened according to how you feel during the day.
The area consists of seven fells, with Ylläs fell being one of the highest in Lapland at 718m, making it possible to ski a different route each day. In addition to countless circular routes, one-way trips can be made using taxis or the ski bus which runs regularly between the two villages of Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi. Guided trips can be arranged through ‘Seven Fells Up’, while Äkäslompolo SportShop in the village centre is an excellent local resource for nordic skiers. There is a network of 14 ski track cafés (some only open from mid-February), plus 25 campfire shelters where you can fry your own sausages like a true Finn.
