Our accommodation is located to our farm where we also live. Our house is built in the 1880s and you can feel the history when you come here. We saw this place and thought that this is the place where people can have an amazing holiday and new experiences.

Here you can enjoy of summer, spring, autumn and winter activities! What do you think about snowshoeing, ice-fishing and kicksledding? Or watching amazing Northern Lights? Or picking up fresh berries, hiking, hunting and fishing? Our place is an excellent starting point for all of that and specially for watching a Northern lights, because we don't have light pollution here like in ski resorts.

Winters are dark and magical (polar night and northern lights), springs are times when birds are singing and ice is melting, summers are full of sunlight (midnight sun!) and autumns are painted with a beautiful colors. Feel the silence and enjoy of a beautiful nature.

Please observe that the faucet water in Finland is of high quality. You can safely drink water from the faucet.

Our place is situated in Kaukonen village of Kittilä – in northern Lapland (from Helsinki 943 km). Kaukonen is one of the oldest villages on the side of Ounasjoki river. Here lives about 350 people.

Nearest airport is located in Kittilä 20 km from our place. Airport Rovaniemi is from 136 km from our place. Levi and Ylläs Ski Resorts are both about 30 minutes drive away from our place. Nearest grocery store 20 km from our place, in Kittilä town center.
