In winter, snow-capped mountains are typical of the region. The highest is 718 meters, or 2,356 feet. On the slopes of these mountains, hikers are quite welcome as are Nordic skiers in the winter.
In the Äkäslompolo area, there are over 360 km of perfectly groomed Nordic ski trails for both classic and skating. You will not find better conditions for cross-country skiing anywhere in Lapland.
In the area, there are also snowmobiles and dog sleds. They are just two of a long list of additional activities.
Äkäslompolo is a typical Laponie village, isolated in the middle of spectacular scenery.
