cottage, Ylläs, Kolari, 8+2 persons

Enjoy your holiday in the Savu cabin, built in 2009, high quality and spacious log house which is fully equipped for 8 (+2) persons. Savu is conveniently located in Ylläs, close to the centre of the Äkäslompolo village only 1 km from all services: Myllylehdontie 8, Äkäslompolo.
Savu is a member of Ylläs Travel Association. We support the maintenance and development of local ski tracks, snowmobile and hiking routes in the Ylläs Arctic hill area.
For Ylläs newcomers as well as old timers the Savu log house is a first class choice in the new Myllylehto district, just within a walking distance from the centre of the still genuine Lappish village Äkäslompolo. The large windows in the living room towards the Southeast give you a view to the nature just outside the window and to the Keskinen top on the left side of the Ylläs Arctic hill.

After hot sauna (don't worry, you can adjust the temperature - you'll love it) you can rest your eyes on the Kuertunturi hill and relax in the evening sun which shines conveniently to the terrace on the Southeast side of the cabin. Keep your camera ready, reindeers come quite often to the area to feed. If you are lucky you can even see the Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) in the night sky.

In the front yard you can put your cross country skies on and slide to the start of the ski track, just at the corner of the Myllylehto road. The youngsters will easily manage themselves by taking the local ski bus to the Ylläs ski centre: the bus leaves from hotel Ylläskaltio, just 500 m from the cabin. The kids will have a lot of room to play in their own corner at the loft and in the yard building their own snow fort. The district is very quiet and there is no traffic going through the area (except some accidental tourists and reindeers).

If you want a bit more action from your holiday there are a few snow mobile and ATV rental services just 500 m from the cabin. During summer time you can test your limits in the Ylläs Bike Park. You can rent bicycles and mountain bikes from the local companies.

If you are interested in fishing or canoeing the Äkäsjoki river is only 250 m from the Savu cabin. Your can find more information about all activities and services in the Ylläs area from:
