For Families

Our cabin is ideal for a great family holiday. Why not bring friends or other family members along? There is plenty of space inside for play and relaxation. As well as being ideal as a children's bedroom, the mezzanine also offers lots of space for children's games whilst adults can relax downstairs. We provide a selection of children's books, games and DVDs. The mezzanine stairs have gates at the top and bottom so you don't have to worry about safety.

The cabin is  well-equipped, including a large fridge-freezer, microwave, washing machine and drying cabinet. We provide a high chair, travel cot and potty-  so you can travel light.

Families are well catered for in Yllas, with plenty of activities available. English is widely spoken. The restaurants are family friendly and have childrens menus.


CHILD FRIENDLY SKI FACILITIES - look here for more information.

Available at both ski areas: Lastenpirtti at Yllas -Ski and at Peikonpesa at Iso-Yllas (Sport Resort Yllas).

Lastenpirtti is a cosy hut  next to the main Y1 ski building where families can rest, eat their sandwiches, feed the baby, change nappies, or play. The children's play area has tobogganing, outdoor play equipment and  a Lapp hut with fireplace and hot berry juice-your children won't want to leave.

 Peikonpesa provides an indoor playroom at Sport Resort Yllas, where there is also the YllasKids area with outdoor play, shelter with firepit,  beginners slopes and a Magic Carpet ( newly covered for 2022/23 season)



You can see Santa in Ylläs. The safari companies organise various activities.

You can even arrange for a private visit to the cabin - a truly special experience.




There are good ski slopes for children and beginners in general.

Children under 7 don't need a lift pass if they wear a helmet and are accompanied by an adult.

There are  family discounts on lift passes. There is a nursery slope at both resorts and plenty of easy (green) runs to learn on.

The excellent local ski-school offers group and private lessons. (Group lessons in English from age 5. You can pre-book private lessons if your children are a little younger)



Most of the activities listed on the activities pages are suitable for families. Safari companies offer shorter versions of some activities which may be more suitable for younger children.

Children will love tobogganing which is available in the village. Short runs suitable for little ones are usually to be found at the Hotel Kaltio (very close to our cabin) and near the supermarket. There are toboggan slopes and toboggans to borrow at the Children's areas at the ski slopes)

Toboggans can be bought cheaply at the supermarket-please don't just take them from outside shops and other places-they do all belong to someone!



The whole family will enjoy cooking sausages or toasting marshmallows over an open fire There are shelters with firepits in the village, near the nursery slopes and at the Children's play area at the ski centre; as well as on the cross-country ski trails.
