As the recipient of Finnish Outdoor destination of the year 2019 award Ylläs in Finnish Lapland is truly a paradise for any outdoor enthusiasts. Offering excellent possibilities for mountain biking, hiking, fishing and canoeing for all skill levels and the amazing Pallas-Yllästunturi national park with the purest air in the world (WHO 2016) Ylläs is the perfect destination to enjoy the endless days of the nightless night of Lappish summer or the glowing northern lights of the arctic fall.
Hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, riding – the list of possible activities during summer is endless as well. By conquering the Kukastunturi fell, you can enjoy great mountain biking experiences surrounded by the Finnish taiga. If you like the speed, you should visit Ylläs Bike Park, the place for downhill biking.
The challenging Ylläs-Levi mountain bike trail is also very popular. Hikers enjoy the vastness of the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park on nature trails. Ylläs has a large number of lakes, rivers, ponds and creeks which provide best conditions for fishermen.
The Tornio-Muonio River, one of Europe’s best salmon rivers, is only a short distance from here. Paddling with canoes or kayaks is possible on the river of Vähäjoki and Äkäsjoki or on the lakes of Ylläsjärvi and Luosujärvi.
