Sauna and swimming
You can enjoy a Finnish sauna in Ylläs in the midst of the fells at Lake Äkäslompolo. We have Finland’s highest sauna on top of the Ylläs fell and the one and the only Sauna Gondola. Traditional smoke saunas can be found at Lake Äkäslompolo, Lake Ylläsjärvi and Lake Luosujärvi. In the spa of Lapland Hotels Saaga there is both a traditional Finnish sauna and steam sauna.
If you are brave enough you can even try swimming in an ice-hole. Ice swimming can be done in the villages of Äkäslompolo (Ylläksen Yöpuu), Ylläsjärvi and Luosu (Rönölä). The sauna by the lake and crystal clear lake water are waiting for the swimmers to try them out.
Larger groups can enjoy sauna at Ylläksen Yöpuu by Lake Äkäslompolo. Also Rönölä's old lumberjack site with its sauna world offers relaxing experiences to small and bigger groups by Lake Luosujärvi, which is easily reached by car.
