Kolmen Koukun Majat provides high-quality log cabin accommodation in Saariselkä, northern Finnish Lapland. The iconic mountainous Urho Kekkonen National Park is right on the cottages’ doorstep, making them an ideal base from which to explore Lapland’s rich wildlife and nature throughout the year.
Saariselkä is a resort village in northern Finland known for its skiing and hiking trails, as well as for being right next to Finland’s second-largest national park, Urho Kekkonen National Park.
Kolmen Koukun Majat offers high-quality accommodation just a stone’s throw away from the local amenities and outdoor activities of Saariselkä. “Lapland’s nature is all around us here. From our cottages, guests have direct access to the starting points of the national park’s numerous hiking and ski trails,” says Tuire Holopainen, CEO and co-owner at Kolmen Koukun Majat.
Kolmen Koukun Majat has four cottages, the largest of which, the Tunturipöllö and Kelo, can accommodate 18 and 13 guests respectively. The cottages are fully-equipped for a comfortable stay, and Kolmen Koukun Majat caters to guests’ every need, promising easy and hassle-free accommodation in a central location. “The centre of the village is small, and all the key places and local services are easily accessible from the doorstep of our cottages, so there’s no need for a car here,” says Holopainen.
Each of the four cabins are kitted out with the latest kitchen amenities, and the larger cabins have been designed to accommodate remote working and conferences. In addition, the cabins’ ski maintenance room and skis are freely available to guests.
Enjoy nature all year-round
In the summer, activities range from hiking the breathtakingly beautiful trails to fishing, canoeing and foraging for berries. In the winter, Saariselkä morphs into a real-life winter wonderland, and the region is renowned for being amongst the best locations for spotting the Northern Lights.
To top off the ultimate Lapland experience, cottage guests can enjoy watching reindeer roaming free right outside their doorstep in the summer. “Whether travelling alone or in a large group, whatever the time of year, we are committed to providing our guests with the perfect setting to enjoy their getaway in Finnish Lapland,” Holopainen concludes.
