In the spring, the snow cover of Ylläs melts and nature starts to turn green. On sunny days, you can enjoy skiing on the spring slopes, bird watching when the birds return to the north, or even play frisbee golf.
Spring is also a great time for hiking and camping because of the fresh weather. Ylläs has nature trails for every taste, from demanding to easy trails. In the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, you can for example find Varkaankuru trail, which is a 3.5-kilometer easy route, and the Pirunkuru trail, which is a moderately difficult 8-kilometer route. You can find all outdoor routes on the Ylläs outdoor map.
When the snow melts, ice fishing changes to fishing. Ylläs offers the best fishing spots in Lapland, as Ylläs has several lakes, rivers and streams where you can test your skills. If you want guidance on fishing, you can book a guided fishing trip or a fishing course. Remember, as a fisherman, you have an obligation to find out about the fishing area and its rules.
The season of the nightless night is celebrated in July-June. Then you can enjoy the midnight sun, forget about sleeping and go out to admire nature. Summer nights in Ylläs are usually pleasantly cool.
