Akaslompolo, Lapland
Set in this magical winter wonderland Lappish village. Our log cabin comes complete with all mod-cons, including private sauna and log fire. It is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of the National Park, but near enough for you to walk to all the attractions in the village. These stunning cabins are ideally suited to families or couples. We also have access to many other cabins in Ylläs. Santa's house is just through the woods from the cabin and the closest restaurant is only a few minutes walk through the woods.

Should our calendar show as booked for the period you are interested in, it is worth sending us an e-mail as we are able to source alternative cabins/apartments.

We had a fantastic time in Akaslompolo. Its a truly magical experience - really pretty and peaceful location surrounded by silent woodlands and yet so much to do in the area. Would recommend the husky safaris, snowmobile trip to the ice hotel and the trip to Hannus reindeer farm. All amazing trips and each one so different. We also booked...

Excellent experience for children. The Santa Village in Joulouka is rustic and "real". The elves do a great job taking care of the kids and being entertaining. Our kids thought they were seeing the "Real Santa". The other Santa Village in the main part of Rovanemi town is not "real" and the kids will see "through it", like the mall...

I was coordinating a holiday for 9 Australians (4 adults and 5 children aged 3, 7, 7, 9 and 9) who wanted to experience a white Christmas. After looking at the past snow patterns across Europe we began to head North and...
