The experience of our guests in Yllashilla log cabin:

"We were a party of 10 (6 adults & 4 kids), we found the accommodation was to be at the highest standard and great for the kids as board games & T.v, snow boards & sledges were also supplied which was great. On arrival the Yllashilla Log Cabin was nice and warm and even the decorations were ready with lights switched on - Thanks !

The open fire place was enjoyed by all (very cosy). Facilities provided were excellent, sleeping quarters were very well received and clean / tidy. The kitchen also had everything we needed & was best suited for our needs. The Sauna was great & very relaxing the whole family had fun in there & so did the adults !!!

There was ample parking spaces for two / three vehicles. The location & surroundings was beautiful & extremely well self-contained with great facilities for shopping & food.

We made Yllashilla Log Cabin our base for the whole period as it was central to all our excursions (Kiruna, Rovaniemi etc).

The journey from the Uk to Yllashilla Log Cabin was long but we all enjoyed our stay in Yllas which was made very comfortable in the cabin.

The value for money made this the best alternative so it gets  a 10/10 from us !

We would do this all again as it was great fun.... We would recommend  Yllashilla Log Cabin to everyone !

Thanks Leena!"

The street lights will be turned off in Ylläs every evening at 10 p.m. This will make it easier for you to see the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights can be seen in the northern part of the sky late in the evening, when the sky is clear. Along with Northern Lights, the stars, moon and snow illuminate the nights.

Turning lights off will also help to reduce our Carbon Footprint in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park.

When going out at night to explore the stars and Northern Lights, please walk on the pedestrianized paths. If possible use a reflector or a headlamp so that you are visible to the motorists. Remember to turn off the headlight when watching the northern lights. It takes some time before your eyes get used to the darkness and see the colours. Try also to photograph the Northern Lights, on photos the colours become brighter when you use a longer exposure.

In Ylläs You can find various Northern Light activities, like snow shoeing, reindeer sledging, ice swimming from the village Sauna or floating with dry suites under the Northern Lights. More information can be found from www.yllas.fi

We wish you a memorable holiday in Ylläs! Come to Ylläs and Ylläshilla log cabin and see Aurora Borealis, the Nothern Lights!
