Ylläs for families

Trekking with children

The nature trails of Ylläs are suitable for even the smallest of the family. Absolute favourite is the Varkaankurunpolku trail in Äkäslompolo which starts from the Yllästunturi Visitor Centre Kellokas. Kesänkijärven kierros Trail is also nice and easy. In Ylläsjärvi you can experience the camping feeling for example on Tuomikurun kierros.
