In the heart of Finnish Lapland, you will find a very well equipped house with sauna for several people. There is an opened fireplace and logs available. You can go directly from the chalet with the ski to do cross-country skiing or snowmobile, and the alpine ski slope is just 1 mile away.

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

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.

Car: recommended

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.
