Land of the living light

The earth orbits around the sun at an angle. During the summer the top points towards the sun and during winter it is turned away. Therefore the location near the top of the globe makes Lapland so special. It brings us the night-less nights, day-less days and northern lights. The Ylläs area with its seven fells offers a postcard like scenery, and this you may enjoy on our unforgettable activities. Familiarize yourself with our ready-made activities and make your choice.
