RUSTIC FOREST LODGINGS
Silent nature and Sami culture combine at Hotel Korpikartano on the shores of Lake Menesjärv in Finnish Lapland. Nestled in the forest in a small reindeer herding village, these cozy lodgings offer guests a rustic Arctic escape and outstanding Aurora Borealis viewing
Guests choose from 28 different ensuite rooms and studios, all featuring cozy, rustic decor. Single Rooms offer a single bed, Studios provide twin beds with a mini kitchen, or pick your view with the Standard Lakeside Room or Forest Side Smaller Northern Window Room.
Lappish, Finnish, and Karelian cuisine is served in the restaurant, with a view of the lake and fells. Menus feature local ingredients, such as reindeer, salmon, white fish, pike, and mushrooms, as well as homemade desserts like lingonberry cake and blueberry pie.
In autumn, take a riverboat to Lemmenjoki National Park, canoe or kayak on the lake, go forest hiking with huskies, or visit reindeer farms and Sami artists. In winter, try skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, and ice fishing - all under glimmering skies.
Relax daily in two electrically-heated saunas with log cabin decor or unwind in the traditional, wood-heated log cabin sauna and hot tub on the lakeshore. Marvel at the Aurora Borealis or Midnight Sun from the cozy Lappish kota hut, or read a library book in the Aurora Lounge.
