Why Heikki Tallgren chose Kolari

Our family has spent winter holidays in Ylläsjärvi for many years. There is enough space for grandparents and grandchildren. We practice alpine skiing and cross-country skiing in Ylläs since the 70's. We are from Lapland, and my parents still live there.

What makes this house unique

Lapland is wonderful

*The alpine skiing in Ylläs is the best of Lapland

*Nordic skiing is also great. Hundreds of kilometres of slopes

*The village of Ylläsjärvi is quiet and perfect for a family with 2 children

*Snowmobile available for hundreds of kilometres

*Spacious chalet with sauna, open fireplace and all modern comfort

once we arrived we had a little difficulty finding the house but once we did it was fantastic the owner is underselling this place it has 2 downstairs bedrooms plus upstairs the size of the house is about 6 beds plus another seating area, the children loved it they called it there den and they didnt want to go home,,, the drying cupboard is fantastic the beds comfortable, my baby loved crawling round, everything you need is at the house no need to leave the house, i was sorry to say good bye to this place and we have take some treasured memories with us, we will be coming again and we hope this property will be avalible as we would love to stay again, apoligys to the neighbour my boys are a little noisy, and being in lapland they were over excited and then when they saw they had a den as well they got over excited, only downfall was no english tv but we were so exhausted with playing in the snow we did go bed early,,, the price of the property was fantastic the area is just beautiful thankyou so much we couldnt have stayed in a better property

great stay in Ylläsjärvi

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Heikki's cabin in Ylläsjärvi in January/February 2018. Outside it was very cold with up to -25°C, and only six hours sun each day, but that made it even nicer for being inside where it was nicely warm (the electric heating works perfect, we didn't even need the fire wood).

Inside the cabin there are two separate sleeping rooms (one with a double bed and one with a single bed) and several more beds upstairs. The cabin has everything you need for a vacation. A car is convenient as the next shop is about 1,5 km away, but I guess you could reach it as well when you walk. The cabin contains everything you need to prepare food. Also there's a Wi-Fi system available.

The cabin has also a sauna which is particularly nice to use when it is so cold outside.

From the cabin it is just 500 m to the next cross country track (which is i.a. a loop around Ylläs with around 8-9 km and lighted from 7-22 o'clock).

So we'd like to thank Heikki for this very nice stay and hope to be back some time at this lovely place!

Sejour magnifique. Le chalet est tres bien equipe et tres jolie. La situation est plutot bien mais je conseille tout de meme la location d'une voiture. Bref nous avons passe un sejour a 6 et n'avons pas manque de place. Nous avons pu decouvrir une region splendide avec un chalet vraiment confortable et un proprietaire soucieux de notre bien etre.

It is located just 20 miles away from Kittilä International Airport, where you can rent a car or take a bus to the chalet. It is about 43 miles from Pajala-Ylläs airport, and 1 mile from the village centre of Ylläsjärvi, direction the ski resort of Ylläsjärvi. Winter and spring-winter activities: cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, snowmobile, sledge dogs, snowshoe hikes, fishing on frozen lakes, see the auroras. Cross-country skiing and alpine skiing available until the end of April, early May. Summer and autumn activities: fishing salmon and grayling, hunting of capercaillie, forest, hiking, canoeing, mountain bike/bike, admire the sun of midnight. The "ruska" is the Indian summer of Lapland, the period when the nature is covered by gold, red and green colours. By the end of September, this foliage will disappear, swallowed by the winter.
