Plenty of activities, diverse services, events, programs and of course people always bring new experiences to your holiday. There is something to do in Ylläs for every season – and there are at least eight seasons in Lapland!
In recent years, Ylläs has invested particularly in the year-round development of biking, and its mountain biking network offers paths for bikers of all ages and levels. Nature trails are much favored by junior members of the families. The routes lead to breathtaking vantage points from which you can admire the expansive fell and taiga scenery. In Finland’s most popular Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, you are breathing the cleanest air in the world. The barren nature of the area and the varied terrain provide an excellent setting for day trips, hiking or mountain biking!

Mountain biking, kayaking, hiking and fishing. Experience active Ylläs and the nature of Lapland at its most authentic! Explore the moods via video.
In Rönölä you can spend the day leisurely fishing, rowing, sun bathing, swimming, exploring the nearby nature on foot or biking … or even in the sauna all day long!
There are different types of wood-heated saunas in our sauna world, from which you can choose your own relaxing favorite. Our old Rustic sauna is an original and atmospheric “savotta” sauna, which served lumberjacks already during their logging seasons in the last century. The Smoke sauna is a new sauna of its kind, combining a wealth of tacit knowledge from past centuries. Find out more about our offer and come and enjoy the gentle moist warm steam of our saunas with time and no hurry.
Ylläs – The Best Outdoor Destination in the Nordic Countries 2020!
This year, Ylläs won the Scandinavian Outdoor Award Travel 2020 in the Best Outdoor Destination category. The prize is awarded annually in Berlin at the ITB International Fair. The jury includes major tour operators, tourism experts and destination managers specializing in sports and adventure tourism in Scandinavia. Ylläs convinced the jury with its holistic approach to follow its ambitious goal of developing the area into a year-round and respected mountain biking destination, also taking into account the well-being of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park.
Ylläs – Excursion Destination of the Year 2019!
The Excursion Destination of the Year award is presented by the Finnish Fair Foundation and was presented to Ylläs at the GoExpo fair in Helsinki in March last year. The theme of the competition was mountain biking, and the selection was based on a public vote. The competition sought biking routes consisting of forest trails, outdoor trails and gravel roads. Along the routes you had to find rest stops, accommodation and preferably also rental and guide services.
Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and the seven fells of Ylläs offer a great opportunity to practice the sport, as there are hundreds of kilometers of mountain biking trails in the area. They are also easy to access in advance through the online trail finder service. More opportunities can be found in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, where you have been able to cycle on marked summer routes since June 2017. In Ylläs, you can cycle all year round: there are one hundred kilometers of regularly maintained winter trails.
