The Gondola Lift is the pride of Ylläs. It is foremost among ski lifts in Finland by any measure - it carries guests two kilometres to the top to an altitude of 719 metres in as little as seven minutes! From the peak you see vast wilderness all around you, more than 100km in distance.
Cafe at the peak is open when gondola is open.
Way the top with the gondola offers a breathtaking landscape. Gondola provides guests an excellent opportunity to plan their next descent from a bird's eye view. In winter all of Ylläs Ski Resort South slopes can be started from the gondola's top station.
Taking the gondola requires a regular ski pass or a gondola round-trip ticket. With a round-trip ticket guests can ride up to the top, admire the view, perhaps visit the Café-Restaurant Ylläskammi for some refreshments and then take the gondola back down if not skiing.
In summer gondola is a easy and good way to see beautiful Lapland landscape from Yllästunturi peak. Gondola is popular with hikers and Ylläs Bike Park bikers.
The gondola lift is wheelchair accessible and can take a perambulator. Some gondola cabins are also pet friendly.
The Sauna Gondola
The world's only Sauna Gondola offer a spectacular views and special sauna experience. Sauna gondola will leave from the top and takes you to 20 minute round-trip down to the skiing centre and back to the top. This is a unique, unforgettable experience.
Ending a day of skiing with a sauna bath taken while suspended between heaven and earth, overlooking the amazing Lapland landscape defies description. It undoubtedly leaves bathers with a tale to tell!
The exclusive sauna experience begins and ends with a snowcat ride to and from the summit. Guests who wish to make the experience even more special are recommended to cap the evening off with a luxurious meal of local delicacies in Restaurant Ylläskammi (by reservation only).
The Sauna Gondola can take four people at a time. Guests get three tours with the Sauna Gondola. Each tour lasts about 20 minutes.
