Good service develops from many years of experience, traditions and strong roots to the location. We aim for good service and quality in everything we undertake. This is Destination Lapland.
As a local agent we know the area and we take responsibility for it. Good quality and service come from our long history and activity in these exceptionally beautiful surroundings. This in itself creates already its own challenges for our operations. Most important to us is the appreciation of nature.
Our family’s first guests were welcomed already as early as the 30′s to the Keski-Kaulanen house. The most important value was providing the guests, through hospitality, with uplifting experiences for body and soul in the Lappish nature. Skiing on the seven fells was back then the most popular sport. We cherish those traditions and want to pass them on to our customers.
Our business’s roots are at the Keski-Kaulanen house and from the 50′s onwards at the Peltola house, from where many excursions to the surrounding nature took their start. When returning from those excursions, the guests could always experience the hospitality formed from the closeness to nature and nature’s resources. Today this translates into well maintained, clean and fresh holiday-homes and safe adventures on our excursions into the nature.
Destination Lapland is the central booking office in the Ylläs area. We offer accommodation on both sides of the Ylläs fell, in Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi. Our family business has made holiday dreams in Ylläs and in Lapland come true since the 1930′s.
The company’s roots are found at the Keski-Kaulanen house in Äkäslompolo, which was in the 1930s a small village with only a handful of households. Already for the family business’s founders grandparents the Lappish hospitability was not something one could learn, it was a way of life.
Today’s Destination Lapland still operates in the same way. As we develop our business continuously, we always try to think of newer and better ways to serve our customers. Our goal is, to keep coming here as simple as possible, just like in the old Keski-Kaulanen house, where the host offered his guests a warm reception: “Welcome tired traveller, please make yourself at home.”
