Unforgettable Experiences in Lapland

Finnish Lapland really is an incredible place and there are so many unique things to experience.  It's easy to get here, easy to find a cabin and easy to organise the exeriences you want, while living right in the middle of some of the most fantastic unspoilt nature on Earth.

Northern Lights

The unforgettable Aurora Borealis.  This is such a great place to see them. Check out local photographer Markus Kiili and some of his amazing pictures. 


Great downhill skiing, but Äkäslompolo is the best place for cross-country skiing too,  with almost 350km of prepared ski tracks, many lit until 10pm and most taking you through enchanting forests.

Snow Village

The snow village at Lainio is great for a daytrip, maybe by snowmobile.  If you are brave, you can even stay the night there.

Husky Tours

There is nothing on earth like travelling through the Arctic forest on a sledge pulled by enthusiastic huskies.  Unmissable! 


Miles of prepared snowmobile tracks make for lots of exploring.  Take a guided tour or hire one and go on your own.

Making the most of your visit

It's easy to arrange all of these activities and more in Äkäslompolo and, of course, we can help.

To get an idea of some of the options available, take a look at some of our friends sites to the right or feel free to send us any questions.

There are so many options to explore the area with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails starting at many points in the village and the SkiBus trip to the downhill ski slope taking less than ten minutes

It's very easy to hire equipment for any of these sports and if you are interested in lessons for skiing or indeed any of the other activities, these are easily organised, are great for getting you up to speed quickly and are available in English.    Beginners ski lessons are particularly popular and you'll be surprised how quickly you learn!
