Enjoy Christmas 2024/2025 in the land of Santa Claus, reindeers and arctic lights


2 bedroom cottage by the lake + sauna in the North-East Finland wilderness

A nice (2 bedrooms) house by the lake in the backwoods of North-East Finland. Fishing, skiing, hiking and picking cloudberries. Pets welcome!

Spend Christmas (2024) in the land of reindeer and Santa Claus!

Summer is a wonderful time in the north - heat waves are mild, and there's light day and night. However, there may be mosquitoes, but no snakes or ticks.

For six years in a row, Finland has ranked No.1 as the happiest country in the world (World Happiness Record). It is because we don't compare ourselves to our neighbors, nature is important to us, and we tend to trust each other and value honesty (Martela 2023).

Our cottage is also available for rent for longer periods, e.g. teleworkers, etc.

Onze buurt

Dichtstbijzijnde vliegveld: Kuusamo - 20 km

The lot is 4 hectares, so there's no neighbors in view. A swimming beach is nearby (200 m). Water is clear: vendace, trout, whitefish, perch and grayling. The yard is quite open for wind, so there is not so awfully many mosquitoes.

There are many nature parks and hiking routes in the area. On the other hand, Finnish language does not have a word for trespassing, we have a concept of "every man's and woman's right of public access" to hike, ski, pick berries and even camp (short time, no fire) in private land. However, there's a lot of government forest around too.

One of the largest ski resorts in Finland, Ruka, is 44 km from our house.

So far we have been happy to spend our summer vacations in our holiday house in Kuusamo, but now our daughter demands a visit abroad in coming summer, since she never been anywhere... The years that we lived in Kuusamo (downshifting) were great, but now we live city life in Kuopio, which is in the middle of Finland, 400 km to south. Our dog, Patu, is 12 years old and in case of exchange, he can either come with us, or stay in Kuusamo.
