Yllashumina Hotel

I had my first experience of the warm hospitality of Toivo and Meeri at the Hotel Yllashumina in December 2005 when we stepped in to help out some of the unfortunate Nortours/Norvista customers.

The Yllashumina is a charming and friendly cross country ski hotel with a cluster of basic cabins set around a wonderful shared Finnish sauna. Lying at the foot of the majestic Yllästunturi Fell in the small village of Akaslompolo in Finnish Lapland it is a superb retreat for visitors.

The standard cabin room are basic and functional for a family of four.  Children will sleep on a mezzanine level on mattresses, as is standard in most Finnish log cabins.

There is also a wonderful restaurant area, with very reasonable food, served by the friendly staff, and a bar that start late and goes on to very early !
