Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I hadnt skied for 20 years and was a bit apprehensive. However from the rental shop to the lift passes, the uplift, the pistes and the great cafes it was brilliant. Excellent quaility skis and boots. The t bar tows, which I remembered from at home could take the legs from under you, were smooth and easy. Sadly it was too windy for the gondola so can’t comment. Even better no massive queues and no jostling for places! Beautifully groomed pistes and excellent cafes for a much needed hot chocolate and a “Munkii”. (Wrong spelling but a delicious enormous doughring). Highly recommend, great for families. We were with a Finnish family who were introducing their tinies to downhill skiing and it was perfect.

Having previously had great skiing experiences at a nearby resort, this year we decided to give Yllas a try. Generally to skiing is great – with good snow conditions, well prepared runs and lots of opportunity for adventuring off-piste. The piste marking was okay, but with some basic issues – the poles and signs were not colour coordinated with the grading, and the numbering in the two skiing areas both started at 1 (potentially confusing when you at the top where they join up). Whilst we were there the top was covered in cloud 3 days out of 4 – I don’t know how typical this is?

We stayed on the Saaga side and would consider this to be the better of the two areas with more shelter and variety of runs. Whilst this is a good ski area for family’s with runs that are accessible to most and never crowded, I couldn't recommend it because there are better alternatives.

The slopes are well maintained, safe, broad and I’d say this skiing was the best I have had in Finland during my 25 years of skiing and the kids liked it, too. When you go during late March-April it is not too cold either, and you can continue skiing until late in the evening - the sun sets at 9 pm and the slopes close at 7 pm!

Visited Lapland (yllas) with my wife and two children aged 9 and 4 . From the very start the trip was stress free . From being dropped at your cabin ,attending welcome meeting and booking trips ,you always knew what you was doing .(Inghams reps are great)
We had the Santa Grotto meet which is absolutely amazing for the kids . Very magical .
You can bake biscuits ,sledging , meet reindeer .Its a great day out

We also enjoyed the snowmobile trip , you get to see remote parts of the area in the middle of nowhere and stop off at a cabin for berry juice and biscuits. The kids ride in a big sledge pulled by one of the guides which had my wife in a panic but they was fine ,the guide would always come and let us know they was ok when we would stop for others to catch up. Our youngest actually was fast asleep wrapped in fur blankets when we stopped for drinks.

Probably the best trip was the reindeer and husky safari. You get to go mushing ( I think that's correct name) with the dogs which is awesome and learn about their way of life . You have free reign of the grounds to meet all the dogs.
You go on a reindeer ride through the woods which is fun

There is loads more things to enjoy here but the kids just loved the freedom and the snow and sledding. But for me it was how picturesque it was and peaceful and the locals are great .

Definitely have to go once .

A ski trip to the arctic circle may be very different to the Alps. This very much depends on when you go.The season changes rapidly with each passing week.One thing that remains constant is how friendly and helpful people at this resort are. The restaurant does a buffet type meal at lunchtime that you really shouldn't miss. It's excellent, and great value especially if you are feeding a hungry cold family. The ski pub is absolutely great also. I have enjoyed hot soup in January and cold beer in March. The slopes are well attended by highly trained and helpful ski patrol people and medical help is close by.Many people seem put off by the button tows, but they are no problem, just not quite as luxurious as a chair lift. The ski bus runs from the villages of Akaslompolo and Yllasjarvi, and for anyone like me who get's confused by the timetable, just ask at the resort or the hotels and someone will always help.If you want sunshine go in March or April, but if you want the slope to yourself and can handle the cold go in January.

This was our fourth trip to Yllas - that alone probably says it all as to what we think of it!! Travelled with Inghams - Easyjet charter flight check in was a bit chaotic due to a belt failure but not a major problem. Lapland was as beautiful as ever, skiing conditions were generally good (bit icy on the last couple of days), husky sled trip was fun.

Took the children for their first ski experience, booked 2 lots of private lessons, with Mikka. He was super friendly and helpful, a great teacher. We learnt the basics, enough so that On our third day we skied by ourselves. With very little falling over.
We were able to hire all equipment we needed from the shop.

Skiing in Finland can many times be a bit hectic and short lived experience. But at Ylläs you just might get enough gentle downhill time to relax your mind and concentrate on enjoying. I recommend trying this out atleast once in your life!
