Situated in Finnish Lapland, about 150 km from the Arctic Circle, Akaslompolo village is the perfect place for the adventurous tourists wishing to explore the Arctic Circle. Forget about TV, telephone, internet, newspapers, or any other type of access to the modern world, and indulge yourself in a relaxing vacation. Here you can ride dog sleds (husky mushing) through the wilderness even for several days, wander cross country with snow shoes or skis, drive a snow mobile, fish at ice holes, watch the northern lights and enjoy complete solitude. At Yllas there is a big Ski-Center. In Akaslompolo you can see The Santa Claus's house and if you are really lucky, you can see Santa Claus and his wife.
