Akaslompolo, Lapland
Sini Kiiruna, Blue Ptarmigan in English, is a lovely log cabin in the charming village of Äkäslompolo in Finnish Lapland.

The cottage is in the Kaulavaara area in a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by a wooded area and within walking distance of the village centre and the safari and tour companies.

In addition to the two main bedrooms there is an upstairs sleeping area which accommodates three single floor mattresses and is ideal for children.

The surrounding area turns into a perfect snowy winter wonderland from late November to Late April each year.

We also live in Äkäslompolo and are available to give advice, answer any questions, or help with tour booking etc.

Nicely warm and clean cottage also for 2 only. Not too big and not too small. All amenities you need are to find you were not even thinking about it you might get in a cottage (like spare bulbs or a bit washing liquid for washing machine). Also a drying cupboard is in the house available. The yard is big...
