Visitor Reviews of Yllas

JR&MR from United Kingdom writes:

In 2014 we went to the Yllas area and stayed in Akaslompolo village for the first time aiming to learn cross-country skiing. For just half a day, at the beginning, we had a very good and caring instructor in the classic style of skiing whose command of English was excellent. The weather conditions were generally good. We found all the routes very well prepared and the Lapland scenery truly beautiful and inspiring. Skiing on the lakes and wooded areas in that area was very pleasant as the views of the countryside and sky were often changing depending on the weather conditions. We were lucky to see the Northern Lights during three nights of our stay although the temperature dropped down to -22C whilst we were outside admiring magnificent streamers of blue lights of Aurora Borealis. One of us is a committed downhill skier in the more extensive resorts of the European Alps and the U S Rockies; I would find the downhill area of Yllas too limited but we would definitely return to Lapland because of its unique and very peaceful white winter ambience.
