Our base in Ylläs is our Safari House in the Ylläsjärvi resort. Kylmämaa Tours is the only local activity programme company in Ylläsjärvi. We also operate throughout the year at Lappean Loma in Lappea in the Tornionjoki River Valley. There’s plenty going on in the Lappean Loma 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 can also arrange professional fishing guides to assist you in catching your salmon.
Charter transportation is also provided with Kylmämaa Tours. We arrange transportation starting from airport transfers. Our company offers a substantial number of ready activity programmes, and new programmes are being constantly developed. Programmes are also designed based on customer preferences, and we compile programmes to create entireties ideal for you! All of our programmes are always implemented with consideration for safety and environmental perspectives.
Our company’s core values are: Respecting Lapland’s nature and its traditions, responding to the changing and individual customer requirements, our undertaking to get things right the first time round, never compromising safety, with consideration for the environment and aiming at strategic further development of our company’s activities to respond to the changing and individual needs of customers.
