Villa Polaris (153 m2) is one of our four Lapland cabins. It’s a cozy wooden chalet at Räkkätie in Röhkömukka in Äkäslompolo. Neighboring house Villa Astra is Villa Polaris’ larger sister-house.
The house accommodates eight people in four bedrooms, with two beds and a bathroom with a shower and toilet. The spacious and open common room consists of a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining area, and a nice sitting area. The dining area has a table for 10 persons and a wine storage cabinet. The sitting area has a comfortable big leather sofa, two lounge chairs, an open fireplace and a TV with all necessities. From the big windows, you have a beautiful view of the natural surroundings of the house. The roomy sauna department holds a sauna, a bathroom with two showers, a WC, and a dressing room. There is also a washing machine and a drying cabinet for your laundry and wet clothing.
The heated building outside the chalet includes a large storage and a warm service room for ski preparation with all service equipment needed. There is also a drying room where you can conveniently leave all wet ski boots, helmets and outerwear to dry. We also offer complete sets of modern high-class skis, boots and ski poles for both cross-country and alpine skiing. Our comfortable alpine ski boots can be found in all adult sizes and fit perfectly with the alpine carving skis in several lengths. The cross-country skis and ski boots are meant for touring and can also be found in different sizes and lengths. Also, a set of snowshoes are yours to use.
We also offer our guests a “Norsk Fjellpulke”, which allows you to bring the family’s youngest with you on the cross country ski tour. If you want to use the sled, please let us know in advance.
The convenient location of Villa Polaris makes sure that you can ski down from the ski slope straight to the chalet’s yard and that you find several cross-country ski tracks just behind the house. The Ylläs Ski Bus stop is 800 meters away. In autumn you can pick berries and mushrooms right on the porch and in summer you can hike in the forest just behind the house. Northern lights can be spotted even from inside the chalet through the windows!
The center of the holiday village Äkäslompolo is 2 km away. The enormous supermarket Jounin Kauppa offers a wide selection of foods, clothing and other essentials and also holds a separate pharmacy (Apteekki), a liquor store (Alko) and a café. You will also find other shops, bars, and restaurants in the village center. The hotel Äkäshotelli is 1,5 km away and has a medical center just next to it (MediYlläs).
There is a car shelter outside the chalet with pylons for the car heaters. Bedlinen, bathrobes, towels, firewood, and cleaning are included in the week-price.
