During the summer Ylläshilla is surrounded by deep shades of green, which slowly turn into blazing autumn colors. The peaceful and pure nature of Lapland offers great opportunities to diverse activities. The ski bus stop is around 400 meters from the cabin. There are three bicycles in the shed, two men’s and one women’s style. In the shed there are also fishing rods and winter sport equipment (sleds, kick sleds and scooters) for the kids. Hiking trails and ski tracks start from the front door. In the surrounding area you can pick wild berries and forest mushrooms or even do some fishing in the lakes and rivers nearby. During midwinter months the polar night keeps the sun from rising, but along with the spring, light returns and you can enjoy the sunbeams reflecting from the blankets of snow.
