BEAUTIFUL FOREST SETTING IN HEART OF YLLAS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Lapland - Traditional Ski Cabin in Akaslompolo

Sleeps 4/6. 2 bedroom log cabin set in the beautiful mountain area of Finland's number 1 ski resort. Set high above the Arctic Circle, there is guaranteed snow. Akaslompolo village, within walking distance, is where you will find good restaurants, bars and a supermarket.

Log cabin 'Aurora' is set in the beautiful mountain area of Yllas; Finland's number 1 ski resort. With a setting high above the Arctic Circle, the guaranteed snow throughout the skiing season makes for a perfect winter holiday. Yllas has that special combination of peace and tranquility, yet all the winter activities you would expect from snow boarding to husky sledging and of course beginners and advanced skiing facilities. However, Aurora offers year round pleasures, as each new season arrives they each bring their own delights. In the long summer days warm temperatures mean walking, fishing, hiking, cycling and canoeing are a pleasure. As the seasons change the magnificent Northern Lights become visible and of course Santa Claus awaits children in his home just a short walk from the cabin. At the centre of this experience, Log cabin Aurora has been designed and finished to make your stay special. A home from home you will want to come back to whichever season you choose.

Note:

As is usual in Scandinavian countries, the cabin is very well insulated so you can be sure of a warm welcome whenever you choose to visit. Children will love the cabin, especially the loft area!

Further Details:

Akaslompolo is a traditional Lappish village with warm friendly people and a charm of it's own. In winter you can ski on uncrowded slopes or enjoy snowmobile trips, husky rides or why not visit the real Father Christmas in his cabin in the forest. The Northern Lights are a spectacular sight that you may be lucky enough to experience. During the warm summer months you can enjoy walking, fishing, canoeing, mountain biking or just take in the clean air.

FANTASTIC!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for Christmas 2013 at the Aurora Cabin and can honestly say we would return again tomorrow !!!
The cabin was perfect in every way, great location, cosy and safe for our three children (aged 10 , 8 & 4)
Linda was absolutely wonderful with her endless help and assistance, even down to suggesting restaurants for our Wedding Anniversary (21st Dec) and for our Christmas Eve Meal.
For people spending Christmas at the cabin, we would recommend the Poro restaurant for the Christmas Eve Buffet. The food was lovely, great value and a wonderful festive atmosphere. We enjoyed a lovely relaxed meal for under 100 euros for 5, a magical walk to the church by candle lit streets to enjoy the carol service, followed by watching Polar Express in front of the fire !! What better way to spend Christmas Eve!!!
Would recommend taking advantage of the discount offered at the Safari Company, we had great fun on the 'Snow What' snowmobile outing on Christmas Day.
We were not blessed with the appearance of the Northern Lights, so what better reason could we have to return to such a lovely place.
We have been on three travel agent package tours to Lapland over the last eight years and after this trip arranging our own cabin and flights (with the much appreciated assistance of Linda!) we would without a doubt recommend to others. The freedom of not having a set schedule or the hectic noisy atmosphere of hotels was lovely.
We enjoyed everything at our own pace and had every home from home comfort we could have wanted.
The only down side of our holiday was having to pack up to leave :(
10/10 for Linda and family and their beautiful cabin.
We will be returning.

I LOVE LAPLAND!!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 6 nights in Lapland from the 13th December 2013 and had the most amazing week. We loved the Aurora cabin, it was so cosy and warm and we felt very at home there, we loved coming back after a day in the freezing temperatures and lighting the wood burning stove, it was lovely.

The cabin had everything you could ever have wanted and made for a very comfortable stay. The DVD player was great for the little one when he just wanted to chill and there was lots of space so we weren't always on top of each other. My little boy loved the mezzanine level and was a very comfortable place to sleep.

We hired a car whilst we were there as we felt a bit restricted relying on the buses and when we are on holiday we like to be spontaneous and go out as and when we like, we felt this was difficult without our own transport. We hired the car through Scandi Rental who were great, we had a car with sat nav and it was very reasonably priced, easy to pick up and drop off back at the airport on our last day and no problem with the temperatures thanks to the heated sparking space outside the cabin or driving around safely as the car had snow tyres.

We travelled around the area and also went further afield, so got to see places that we wouldn't have done otherwise. We booked all of our trips at Snow Fun Safaris, and they were great, really friendly, really helpful and went above and beyond to ensure we had great experiences - we loved the Reindeer and the Husky safaris and the ski mobiles were great fun.

We also arranged to see the "real" Father Christmas located at the Poro Restaurant, which our ittle boy loved and we ate some nice meals there as well, the food was great.

Linda was great at responding to my numerous questions before we went and it was really helpful knowing she was on the other end of the e-mail or phone if we needed her. Finnair cancelled our return flight, so we stayed an extra night at the Askhotelli hotel just oustide the village, it was a nice hotel with lots of good facilities and again a warm and cosy self catering apartment, great for a quick overnight stay.

We loved our time in Lapland and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Aurora cabin in the charming village of Akaslompolo. It certainly lived up to my dream of what Lapland would be like and maybe one day we will go back!

HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
Aurora cottage is like a home from home for us being fully fitted out with all those thoughtful little items making it a very comfortable place to stay. It is conveniently located in the village with a short walk to the supermarket and other shops. In the winter you can cross country ski from the doorstep onto the many prepared ski tracks. The cottage has access to a ski waxing room and fire wood for the log burning stove.
We have been visiting this part of Finland, winter and summer, for many years. In winter Akaslompolo is considered one of the best areas in Europe for cross country skiing and the downhill is good for beginners and intermediate skiers. The summer gives you plenty of beautiful walking trails with stunning views of the Arctic landscape.

EXCELLENT - CANT WAIT TO GO BACK

  • 5 out of 5
After staying in Akaslompolo in December we decided to go back and experience the Arctic Summer. We were not dissapointed.
Aurora is a lovely cabin, well situated for the village.
It is a real home from home, with everything you need to enjoy your stay.
Really looking forward to a return visit in the Winter and next summer
