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.

Huge sportshop where you find everything for winter activities (snowshoes, ski ,cross-country ski, shoes, bycicle,...). Good product but expensive if you come from Europe (price similar as Switzerland). All the winter brands are present.

We went just to see what is there and came out with lots of great merchandise. Clearly the selection is for people who appreciate quality.

Excellent bikes with helpful service. They helped us choose bikes, routes and settings. When we had a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, they were extremely helpful and managed to send help only a few kilometers away.

Like all ski shops, some things on sale are not cheap. However the range is vast, and you are very likely to pick up a bargain in the sales. Best of all is the service. What ever your interest in skiing or in Lapland generally, you will find very helpful and professional help here. I visit regularly, I always learn something and often find a bargain. My thanks to all of you. See you soon.

What a nice small shop to drop by between your winter sport days. I used their webshop and reserved stuff to try on my self when dropping by at their stop. The items were offered me with variations on size and all together the servise was warm and welcoming.

A bit different sport shop which has almost everything.

This is like outdoor humans candy shop.

If there's something you can't find, they most probably can order it to you if you can pick it up from the store.

Focus is on winter gear, since the location is on the foot of the YLLÄS fell.

Strong season changes make this shop to "kill" the prices, when the season is coming to an end. So if you want to save a penny, wait for the season sale.

Been here twice and will definitely go again.

Service very good and professional, since the personnel live from the sports they offer the gear for.

I sent an email booking for cross country skis, boots and poles for my wife with details of shoe size, etc, several months before I arrived. I quickly received confirmation email that the equipment would be ready for me. Sure enough, when we arrived the equipment was waiting with a label with our name on it. Really good equipment. We will book with them next year.

Even if we are more interested to buy some keepsake we really enjoyed the shop. A kind of good selection of different brands. Including some special finish clothes.
