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.

Our stay in Finland, organised with Fun with Santa was fantastic. Jane was superb in organising everything so smoothly and making sure we had some excellent trips sorted out. Everything ran very smoothly. Akoslompolo is a beautiful place and there was so much to do. The cabin was perfect for our family of four and we will definitely be hoping... more
