Reviews of Yllas
We stayed at Yllas in July of 1994. It was a wonderful experience. The cabins were as advertised, clean, and the sauna was great. We were married at the resort on top of one of the downhill slopes and all was arranged by the resort staff - what a great bunch of folks they were. We are returning for our 10th anniversary.
If you go in the summer - don't forget the mosquito repellent if you plan to spend time outdoors.
Sweden and Norway are nearby so plan on taking a couple of side trips.
This is an update after our re-visit in July 2004. Everything was still great as expected and we had a wonderful time. Much development has taken place in the past 10 tears however so there are many new varieties of places to stay including several nearby hotels that are open all year. The highlight of our experience was a day-trip to Alta, Norway where we visited the Museum containing a number of rock carvings. Tours are given (we heard English, German and French for example). It is a long day but worth it to see this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Finland uses Euros now for cash but Norway and Sweden do not but credit cards work just the same.
