Ylläshumina Hotel, Ylläs Overview
With miles of cross-country skiing for all levels, plus a wide range of other activities, a week here is a truly unique experience.
- superb cross-country skiing from the door
- high-quality hotel with sauna
- unrivalled range of activities
- beautiful and surreal Lapland scenery
Beyond the Arctic Circle, the magical landscapes of Lapland, across which herds of reindeer roam freely, are bathed in a special light. December and January are months of surreal and beautiful twilight, though by February, the region enjoys nine hours of daylight. Consisting of two villages surrounded by seven fells, snow-sure Ylläs is a paradise for skiers.
This is an enchanting part of the world and Ylläs (pronounced ‘Oo-las’), the location of Toivo Qvist’s Ylläshumina Hotel, makes an unrivalled base for an Arctic winter experience, whatever your age. As a former member of the Finnish cross-country skiing team, it is no wonder that Toivo decided to settle here – the area boasts the largest and best cross-country network in Finland.
