Stayed at the Polar Star in Febuary with one other couple and a group of 8. We came here as the only option left available when chasing the northern lights. It turned out to be very good value with lots of extras and the experience of sharing with total strangers was a delight. As an older couple, the prospect of...

We travelled in a party of 12 for our wedding in January 2011. Lapland is an amazing place, and we will definately be returning - one word that best describes it is 'Magical'.

This is a beautiful chalet in a winter wonderland, set on the edge of a forest. We had reindeers wandering outside and more snow that you could imagine. We went to ski but also did snow-mobiling and some walking. You can also go husky dog sledding, to the ice hotel etc. I agree with the other reviewer that the chalet...

Our expectations of this holiday/accomodation: We were looking for a cheap ski holiday over New Year, in cosy accomodation, where we would have the company of other people. We were not looking for nightlife and were happy to eat in every night. The location: Be aware that Yllas is effectively two resorts. While you can get from one to the...
