The cabin is in walking distance of all the village amenities (including large supermarket and restaurants) and ski bus stop, yet is set within a lovely tranquil setting. The extended ski season from November to May offers guaranteed snow for downhill or cross-country ski-ing, snowboarding, sledging or even a husky dog or reindeer ride or perhaps a visit to see Santa Claus! After a day in the snow relax in front of the cabins wood fire or in the cabins own private sauna. The summer months offer 24 hours of daylight enabling you to experience hiking, cycling, fishing & canoeing in the beautiful fells, lakes and rivers. The Northern Lights are visible from October to March with the cabins terrace providing the perfect viewing platform. Our log cabin offers all home comforts. It is an ideal base for families to explore the beauty of Lapland.

December 2012: Just a quick note to express our thanks for the cabin. We had a fantastic time, the cabin was out of this world and in a great location. Santa coming to the house was an experience my ones will never forget, myself included. I will definitely be back and will highly recommend Yllas to others. Thanks again and have a happy new year. Colin January 2013: I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your property over the new year. We had a wonderful time and I was very pleased with the accomodation. Many thanks Emily
