The Ylläs 1 Gondola Lift is the pride of Sport Resort 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!
Way the top with the gondola offers a breathtaking landscape. It also offers guests an excellent opportunity to plan their next descent from a bird's eye view. All of Sport Resort Ylläs' slopes can be descended 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 Ylläskammi Café Restaurant for some refreshments and then take the gondola back down.
In the summer time, the gondola is popular with hikers and Ylläs Bike Park bikers. In spring hang-gliders come for the spring winds.
The gondola lift is wheelchair accessible and can take a perambulator. Some of the gondola cabins are dog friendly.
Ylläs 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 the Ylläskammi restaurant (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. The Sauna Gondola is booked together with the sauna at Café Gondol 718 which is at the top of Ylläs fell. The sauna at Café Gondol 718 hosts up to 12 people and has a room with a fireplace, showers, and a heated outdoor whirlpool bath. It also has an amazing view and lucky guests might even get to see the Northern Lights!
