This select hotel, whose building mirrors the nature
that surrounds it, nestles on the shores of Lake Lammasjärvi in Eastern
Finland close to the Russian border. This is a region of great tradition
and folklore. This is a place where Finland’s great epic Kalevala
still survives, indeed a place of true ‘Finnishness’.
The Kalevala Hotel is in a unique setting where there is space to relax
and unwind in an ideal retreat. What more inspiring environment could
there be than our breathtaking lake view offering natures adventures on
land or water, summer or winter.
The Kalevala Hotel is an excellent choice for a Winter holiday,
Christmas holiday, short break, special occasion
or family holiday, for Business or pleasure.
You are very welcome to Wild Taiga, Finland!
Hotel Kalevala works very closely with local companies. Some of the
safari providers are independant one man businessís. They have a passion
for their activity. They have grown up in the area and can pass on lots of
historical and cultural facts. They have a great knowledge of their
surroundings and the nature, which they enjoy to pass onto their clients
during the activities so as they get the best out of the experience.
Many local associations also play a part in the tourism of Kuhmo, e.g.
once a week, during winter, a local Folklore group visits the hotel
playing, singing and dancing together with our guests.
Many of the older traditions are carefully preserved and are part of
the entertainment offered by the hotel. Rune-singing and Kalevala epic,
tar-history, war-history, Father Christmas, traditional nature tasks, wild
animals tours are some examples. Guides for the special interest
programmes are from the area, highly skilled and these tours are always
planned in conjunction with them.
Our partners (transportation, food, activity companies, etc.) are also
from the region. We buy and use as much home produce as possible, e.g.
berries, mushrooms, fish. Our rye bread has been created together with the
nearby bakery. Decorations such as flowers, cones, lychen, stones and bark
all come from the surrounding nature.
