Ylläs is experiencing a lively and revitalising tourism season. Plenty of activities, a wide range of services, events, programmes, and of course people always bring about new experiences on holiday. Ylläs has two genuine Lappish villages. Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi combined are home to around 850 people.
Seven-fell Ylläs enchants throughout the year. In the wintertime you can enjoy Finland’s snowiest nature, longest skiing slopes and best-maintained cross-country skiing tracks. The never-ending light of the Midnight Sun in the summertime makes you want to go to the summit to reach the sky, taste the flavours of the forest, and cycle all the way there. Autumntime senses are pampered with the world’s cleanest air, the vibrant autumnal shades of red and the spectacular display of the Northern Lights. At the gateway to Finland’s most popular national park, in a genuine Lappish village with an abundance of services, you will enjoy an extended stay. The national park charms visitors with its diverse landscapes. The area is visited by half a million visitors each year, and for many the destination is part of their annual holiday and travelling plan.
Lappea the paradise for relaxation!
LappeanLohi sits atop a handsome cliff, on the shores of the wild and free-flowing Tornionjoki River and around the halfway point of Lappea’s highly renowned salmon still waters. LappeanLohi is only around 30 kilometres from Kolari (nearest railway station) and approximately 45 kilometres from Pello. You can reach LappeanLohi from Kittilä Airport in app. an hour and 15 minutes and from Rovaniemi in approximately 1½ hours. Our address is Lappeantie 251, 95900 Kolari.
Throughout the entire year LappeanLohi is a tranquil destination for those after accommodation and family festivities and company meeting organisers. Accommodation is provided in pleasant rooms with plenty of character in the converted old village school. Accommodation in summertime is also provided in traditional camping cabins, or you can even park your mobile home or caravan in our open grounds. LappeanLohi has a spacious festive hall/conference space for organising parties and meetings, and we provide full service to order, from accommodation to catering. Our cafeteria caters to passing visitors and residents alike, serving pastries and fresh coffee or a cool drink for quenching the thirst.
There’s plenty going on in the LappeanLohi grounds during the summertime, as the salmon from the Baltic Sea, Salmo salar, ascends the river for breeding and attracts plenty of fishing enthusiasts. We hire out boats and fishing equipment suitable for salmon fishing, we sell fishing permits, and we can also arrange professional fishing guides to assist you in catching your salmon. In late summer and early autumn when the vibrant autumnal ruska colours the landscapes, LappeanLohi organises berry and mushroom picking trips, introductions into various handicrafts, or simply relaxation. In the winter it is worth visiting LappeanLohi to search for the Northern Lights, enjoy the true sound of silence and perhaps even take part in a snowmobile safari crossing two nations, as the snowmobile route departs from the grounds.
