Finland is a land of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and the winter darkness, urban and rural, East and West.
As you look out from the plane, the first impression you may have is that there are a lot of trees… an endless carpet of forest, with many lakes and small towns in between. It’s kind of a surprise when you land in Helsinki to find that the airport is so modern and efficient. Not a polar bear in sight.
It’s truly amazing how uniquely exotic each season can be. Four times a year, nature changes its uniform completely – colour, light, temperature, sounds and smells. Everything changes in a way that happens nowhere else.
The Finns are also considered to be cool – a bit quiet and reserved. However, they are actually warm, friendly, hospitable and especially honest people once you get to know them and we encourage you to do just that.
Finland’s legal concept of everyman’s right gives everyone the chance to enjoy outdoor pursuits, and the freedom of the country’s vast forests and fells, and many lakes and rivers, with few restrictions.
The easiest way is to rent a car. However, there is also a relatively wide bus and train network in Finland. Read more about getting to Yllas!
The busses can be booked from:
Matkahuolto -website which includes all except Onnibus-busses.
Train tickets can be bought from VR-website. It is the only railway company in Finland.
If you are flying to Finland, you have several options. The best would be to fly to Helsinki and take a connecting flight to a regional airport or continue with rented car, railway or bus. Finnair flies to regional airports as well as Norwegian.
Please note, that cottages are often located in remote areas where public transport does not necessarily reach or if it does, it is seldom.
