Tallikahvio in Peurakaltio is known for its home-made delicacies that are available again this winter season along Aakenuksentie, near Ylläs. The cafe is located at the crossroads of the most beautiful ski trails and serves mostly locally-sourced food and drink: even the berries are foraged from the nearby area. Tallikahvio also serves overnight guests, providing hearty breakfasts and delicious lunches and/or suppers, plus a packed lunch. Tallikahvio is also excellently suited to different kinds of evenings and, for example, arranging birthdays, wedding receptions and other festive events.

When you arrive by car, drive about 10 km from Äkäslompolo towards Muonio, then turn into Aakenuksentie towards Kittilä. The road branches off to the left after 3.5 km at the top of the hill and you will arrive in the yard of Peurakaltio very soon. The skiing/walking distance from Äkäslompolo is at least 13 km.
New snowshoe-walking/winter cycling tracks have also been opened in the area. The route comes from the direction of Elämänluukku through the spectacular landscapes of Äkässaivo. From Peurakaltio, the route then continues to the Äkäsmylly (Äkäsmill). Here you have two different options to choose from, though it’s of course possible, even recommended, to do the full loop. Getting across the rapids at Äkäsmylly is easy along the robust wooden bridge.
Accommodation of various levels is available in five rooms in the old Savottakämppä adjoining Tallikahvio. There is a total of 40 beds in the rooms and two sauna opportunities and also a new hot tub. Also lunch and/or supper and/or breakfast and a packed lunch are available for overnight guests, if desired. Bedding and towels etc. are also available on request. Accommodation alternatives range from a double suite to a large dormitory for 20. We have attempted to keep the authentic feel of a logging cabin in the interior decoration of the accommodation areas. Please don´t hesitate to ask more details.
