Winter snow breaks in Finland

Whatever your level, quiet Ylläs is a superb base for a cross-country skiing holiday in Finland in 2023/24. The non-skiing activities are also fantastic, providing an all-round Arctic winter experience including dog-sledding, snowshoeing, winter walking and the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights.

Winter holidays in Finland – non-skiers

very welcome too!
‘Unforgettable’ sums up winter holidays in Finland, and the best news is that you don’t necessarily have to ski. Our Slow holiday philosophy places the emphasis on revelling in the serenity and beauty of the landscapes, be that on skis, snowshoes, a dog-sled, or on a torchlit stroll in search of the Northern Lights. You can enjoy all this – and more – from Ylläs, staying at a hotel praised for its hospitality and cuisine. For something completely different, opt for a tour of Nordic cities by rail and boat.
