Want the ideal family, business or couple getaway in the perfect location and activities all year round? Craving an activity-ridden day on the slopes, a relaxing afternoon at the golf course or an exciting, music-packed summer evening? Himos Holiday Centre has it all.
Avid skiers, companies wishing to mix business with pleasure, nature enthusiasts, music fans and visitors simply looking for a relaxing, quality stay will surely be pleased by the wide range of accommodation possibilities and events hosted by Himos Holiday Centre. At this family business, established back in 1989, it’s all about the perfect package, says sales consultant at Himos Holiday Centre, Katja Minkkinen. “We offer a complete holiday package through a single reservation, demanding minimal effort from the customer. Our 26 years of experience in the business, combined with our incredible versatility, makes us one-of-a-kind in Finland,” Minkkinen emphasises.
The resort is indeed known for its versatility, providing quality accommodation, a safari, as well as seminar and restaurant services all year round. Families, companies, couples and young adults alike are sure to have a fantastic stay. Located in central Finland in the town of Jämsä, Himos Holiday Centre is easy to reach from any of the larger cities in the country. But as the resort is also embedded in the beautiful landscape of Lake Päijänne, visitors can also enjoy the calm of the nature, making Himos Holiday Centre the perfect destination.
Accommodation for every need
There is no shortage of accommodation options at Himos Holiday Centre; the resort offers a wide range of cottages, villas, and hotel and motel rooms, to meet the needs of its versatile visitor clientele. Executive standard villas, a variety of holiday cottages, the Himos Hotel and the Lakeside motel Patalahti Inn make up the diverse accommodation menu. “In the winter, accommodation near the slopes as well as the cross-country skiing-tracks and snowmobile tracks is a popular choice among guests, whereas the refurbished motel rooms of Lakeside motel Patalahti are a favourite for summer visitors, because of the serene, ‘postcardesque’ environment,” Minkkinen explains.
In addition, visitors looking to add an extra touch of luxury to their stay can choose a cottage or villa featuring a luxurious outdoor Jacuzzi. Most of the accommodation options are located within walking distance to the restaurants, meeting facilities and other services that Himos Holiday Centre offers, as well as the buzzing nightlife of Himos Areena.
Adventure and activity seekers – listen up!
Fans of the outdoors face the luxury of a surplus of choices, as no matter the season, there is always something happening at Himos. The choice is yours; hit the slopes, revel in the beauty of the snow-covered landscape by signing up for a snowmobile safari – also available at night-time – or perhaps opt for a moose safari, which includes a visit to Moose Manor, where the bravest can feed the moose by hand.
Other winter activities include snowshoe trekking, ice-swimming, alpine curling and skating, perfect for families and groups looking to keep active during their winter holiday. “We also offer many activities for children such as a snowmobile school, troll forest winter adventure and a crafts corner, making sure the youngest family members also get an adventure-packed, fun holiday,” Minkkinen says.
Everyone knows that the magnificent Finnish summer days are best spent outdoors, and at Himos Holiday Centre, every day is an opportunity to try out a new activity. The wide range of activities includes an adventure rope track, a climbing wall, sumo wrestling, canoe rental, and of course the new full-scale golf course, described by Minkkinen as “a work of art.” The course has been designed and landscaped for the surrounding terrain, taking advantage of the existing height differences.
The perfect venue for business and entertainment
Besides housing and entertainment, Himos Holiday Centre also offers a selection of meeting facilities for four to 220 people, Himos Areena being the biggest one. With its excellent meeting technology and equipment, it is the ideal venue for larger events such as seminars, workshops and exhibitions. “After a day of productivity and creativity, the different sauna premises and catering options also offer the perfect reward,” Minkkinen adds.
For outdoor events, the choice is clear; Himos Park, an event field built to host almost an endless variety of outdoor events, such as the annual classic car show that takes place here. In the summer, Himos Park is also the place to be for music lovers and festival enthusiasts. The venue hosts festivals and concerts, which attract tens of thousands of visitors each year and cater to a wide range of musical preferences, covering everything from hip hop and rock to Eurodance and traditional, Finnish schlager music. Wu-Tang Clan, Pendulum and Linkin Park are among the headlining names this upcoming summer.
Visitors craving a taste of the Finnish music scene head to Himos Areena, where the best Finnish artists hit the stage throughout the year. With its various restaurants and bars, it is also the perfect after-ski venue and weekend favourite.
