Ylläs Log Cabins, Ylläs, Lapland
Highly recommended, idyllic, high-quality modern log cabins, dotted around the woods in a variety of scenic locations.
Staying in a cosy, warm, well-equipped modern log cabin is for many the iconic dream of what a perfect Lapland holiday should be.
A log cabin gives you the best opportunity of seeing the Northern Lights. Just step outside for the best viewing opportunities, and remember that the village turns off all street lights after 10pm thereby minimising any light pollution for optimal aurora sightings.
