Seven Fells Up

Reviewed By BhaswatiDas21

The company has its counter near jounin kauppa in K- market in Äkashlompolo. Booked Northern walking tour for us (leaving kids at home due to temperature issues with my parents). It was 55€ per adult. We spoke with Sabrina but our tour guide was Neels. We were 9 people all together. A Swiss family(enthusiastic), an Australian family (with 3 kids - very warm people).
Tour was nice. We were given snowshoeing gears and were given proper instructions for the walk. We walked through forest on heavy snow. Then after around 40 minutes reached a cottage. Drank warm juice and grilled sausages. Listened to some good stories about Lapland.
While returning saw northern lights too. That was the best part. Good 2 and half hours trip.

Snow Fun Safaris Lapland

Reviewed By maud_cyril - Townsville, Australia

What can I say about this company except they are absolutely fantastic. Everybody from the front desk to the guides were absolutely fantastic. They were also professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We did three trips with them; the reindeer Safari by hannu, the salmon seeking on the lake and the Husky Farm visit and sleigh ride. it was just perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

This is a visitors' centre of the state forest agency providing all kind of services for outdoor life in the north. Here they have a nice exibition about how it used to be in Lapland ages ago. They have non-stop films about Lapland. There is always a rotating exibition of local artist's. There is a small library, PC-service, book shop and an info desk as well as a cafe. There is also a "cinema" presenting quite new films at a price of a fraction compared to the cities. We saw already La la land there.
From this place you can start many wonderful nature trails with useful information on the way - only outside winter time. The scenery is grat.
The only problem is to get there, if you don't have a car. Local buses go there, but only a few per day. You can also walk there. It's only a few kilometers from Akaslompolo - uphill! In the winter you can go by skiis.

Sisu Outdoor

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Timo and Maikku "brought by a train" to Yllas. That is how the local population call for the not locals. Anyhow we are locals now, Timo with 15 years and Maikku with 20 years of experience in Yllas. Both of us have an ISIA qualification (International Ski Instruction Association) with skills to teach cross country (traditional, skating, pumping), alpine, snow board and telemark skiing.

Reviewed By Lauri A

Took two cross country skiing lessons, both skate and one classic. One was private lesson and one was shared/group lesson, beginner / intermediate level. In both cases, coaching experience was excellent, with a patient but an adaptable style to meet individual needs as well as good local hints on treks and paths. Warmly recommend to anybody needing to either learn the basics or brush up old cross country skills. Location superb as well.

My second time here. Love the place and atmosphere. Easy to come to this family run place. Lots of animal from rabbits and quinoa pigs to wild hogs and camels. You can buy a little bag of bread to feed the animals if you want to make a closer contact. Got to pet a ferret also. :D

We bought our x-c skis and boots here. They were very helpful and informative as we weren't really that sure about what we should be buying. They explained why they had suggested what we needed and the benefits. We also had our skis subsequently serviced. Reasonable prices too.

Scandinavian Adventures

Reviewed By gimo2010 - Zurich, Switzerland

We did two excursions with the Scandinavian Adventures. The first we went to the top of the Hill with the snow mobile and the second we went to the Husky Farm for the Husky Drive.Both excursions are well organized and the people were always on time. As we were in the pre-season we did both excursions alone with the guide and this makes the feeling much better and funny.
