We had a great time learning to ski here. The center has great cross-country tracks and a couple of simple and medium complexity downhill slopes. You can rent equipment on site. There is also a children area with a baby lift. We got a one-on-one ski lesson and the instructor was amazing - so patient and fun. The staff were... More

once the mosquitos are fought off with some repellent, go out onto the hillside and enjoy the midnight sun go by - it is phantastic and probably one of the better places in lapland to watch.

We walked this trail (ounasvaara) in summer. Easy starting point is the lapland hotel, follow the blue signs with a white walking man. Make sure you wear proper waterproof hiking shoes, part of trail goes over stones and part through wet moss, your shoes will sink into water 10 cm even during a dry period. The walk is really nice,... More

I took my two children here for the day and taught them to ski. I couldn't have asked for a better place to do it. There is a separate nursery slope with an elevator lift that is very easy to use. We visited at the end of the season and it was very quiet. You can get there easily by... More

I was here for the XC skiing, which they do rent from the main ski shop. The XC trails are essentially open to the public so no lift ticket is required. The who XC system appeared to be used quite a bit by locals also.

This hill is very nice to ski.There are not so many people coming over here what makes the hill quiet.There is a small restaurant down, so if you feel cold you can warm up there.Of course this place is small but take profit while you can.

I'm a total beginner so I'm reviewing this place from a beginners perspective. For my needs it's a fantastic place and the slopes just matched my skills. I can imagine however that it may not be the most exciting place for more experienced skiers. What I liked about this place is that it's also very much used by the local... More

There are a hundred kilometres ski tracks in Ounasvaara. There are tracks for beginners (few slopes) and for better skiers too. All the tracks are for both traditional and skating styles.The condition of tracks is quite good. In several tracks have also lights, so you can ski there also in the evenings. There are also several parking lots, so you... More

From the outset, we chose to ski here due to its proximity to the town centre where we were staying (aka <15 euros cab ride away) and that we could add another Finland experience and feather to our caps. With such conservative expectations, it delivers. As we were more tourists than hardcore snowboarders, the few slopes and short runs didn't... More
