Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Akaslompolo, Lapland
Sini Kiiruna, Blue Ptarmigan in English, is a lovely log cabin in the charming village of Äkäslompolo in Finnish Lapland.

The cottage is in the Kaulavaara area in a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by a wooded area and within walking distance of the village centre and the safari and tour companies.

In addition to the two main bedrooms there is an upstairs sleeping area which accommodates three single floor mattresses and is ideal for children.

The surrounding area turns into a perfect snowy winter wonderland from late November to Late April each year.

We also live in Äkäslompolo and are available to give advice, answer any questions, or help with tour booking etc.

How to get there
How to get to Äkäslompolo Flying The easiest option is to fly to Kittilä airport. It is easy to hire cars there, and each flight is also met by a bus that will take you directly to Äkäslompolo. There are usually some direct flights to Äkaslompolo from UK airports in winter and Finnair and Norwegian airlines offer flights via Helsinki, which is an easy and friendly airport to transit through. Rail One of the most charming ways to get to Äkäslompolo is by overnight train from Helsinki to Kolari. The sleeper train is a relaxing way to travel if you have the time, and is the perfect way to see the transition to deep winter as you travel up through Finland. Buses also meet all trains and will take you directly to Äkäslompolo. Car Hire It is not at all necessary to have a car when you holiday here, but it can add to the fun. Winter driving in Lapland is quite easy, with all cars fitted with studded tyres through the winter months and it is quite easy to get used to driving in the snow.
