Downhill Skiing

The fells of Lapland provide an amazing environment for enjoying the scenery and feeling the speed at the same time. Downhill skiing is a popular sport and pastime activity, which brings thousands of people to the North every year.

The feeling you get when you’re watching the world from the top of a fell, looking down at a perfectly snowy and sleek slope and then giving yourself a push forward, feeling the wind on your face as you ski down is incomparable. Lapland Safaris provides services in three different ski resorts: Ylläs in Äkäslompolo, Olos in Luosto and Ounasvaara in Rovaniemi.

From the 63 slopes of Ylläs you can find suitable slopes for skiers of every skill level. The breathtaking scenery of the Pallas-Yllästunturi national park and versatile activity choices of Ylläs Ski Resort make Ylläs a downhill skier’s paradise. The Ylläs fell also has exquisite conditions for off-piste skiing. Olos Ski Resort also has great settings and services to offer for downhill skiers. 10 groomed slopes and 4 ski lifts keep you entertained all day long. In the Ounasvaara Ski Resort you can enjoy different winter activities just outside Rovaniemi city centre.
