Metsähallitus is the largest landowner in the Ylläs area. The Äkäslompolo and Ylläsjärvi areas have a lot of land use plans and development plans in different stages of the planning process. These plans can be tailored to suit the customer’s needs.
About half of the plots in the plan for the Röhkömukanmaa holiday home area in Äkäslompolo are ready for sale, and the other half can be made available quickly as individual plots or by quarter area.
The local detailed plan for the Maahisentie area in Äkäslompolo includes commercial and holiday home plots in a central location. The plots have building rights totalling 1,800-3,400 square metres.
