We have operated for over 30 years as a producer of activity services and as a destination management company (DMC). We provide almost everything you need for your holiday, starting from transportation and accommodation. We are highly experienced producers of revitalising Arctic nature’s cold experiences and organisers of exclusive trips that respect the locality through our own service brands; KylmämaaKuura, KylmämaaMetsä, KylmamaaLoiste and LappeanLohi. Our base in Ylläs is our Safari House in the Ylläsjärvi resort. Kylmämaa is the only local activity programme company in Ylläsjärvi. We also operate throughout the year at LappeanLohi in Lappea in the Tornionjoki River Valley. Safari House is situated approx. 160 km from Rovaniemi.
There’s plenty going on in the LappeanLohi grounds during the summertime, as the salmon from the Baltic Sea, Salmo salar, ascends the river for breeding and attracts plenty of fishing enthusiasts. We hire out boats and fishing equipment suitable for salmon fishing, we sell fishing permits, and we also arrange professional fishing guides to assist you in catching your salmon.
In late summer and early autumn when the vibrant autumnal ruska colours the landscapes, LappeanLohi organises forest trips, berry and mushroom picking trips, river raft trips in Tornionjoki river, introductions into various handicrafts, or simply relaxation. In the winter it is worth visiting LappeanLohi to search for the Northern Lights, enjoy the true sound of silence and perhaps even take part in a snowmobile safari crossing two nations, as the snowmobile route departs from the grounds. Also snowshoing trips to the wilderness and wilderness overnight trips are available.
Non-fishing times are from 7 p.m. on Sunday through to 7 p.m. on Monday, a time when salmon fishing is forbidden.
Safari house in Ylläsjärvi is open December - April.
