“newbies go Nordic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

I took my 11 year old daughter for her birthday....the first time ever on skis.................the staff was warm, encouraging and very helpful.....we wound up skiing most of the two days, skating a little and snowshoeing a little but mostly skiing............the trails are glorious and well groomed....it made us xcountry ski lovers in a hot second! The beds in our Tupa were incredibly comfy and we are really picky! The woodstove was already set up with perfect kindling in it so we could warm up the second we finished for the day...Kids just cant get bored here and , a plus, the food was really delicious.............and that is from a serious cook..Ann and Olavi have thought of just enough of everything to make the serious or the Novice skier happy. kudos!

“Absolute gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

I've heard about this Nordic skiing destination for years, and somehow never got a chance to get out there until this year. What a great place! Very warm welcome by the proprietor Ann, absolutely perfect skiing conditions and fabulously maintained trails. I went with my teen-aged son, and we couldn't believe how often we felt like we had the these perfect trails all to ourselves. Grooming was impeccable & signage was great. The "tupa" we stayed in made our trip. We loved it. The great food, brought right to our tupa was icing on the cake. We definitely plan to return!

“This place is awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

The tupa we stayed in was charming- complete with wood-burning stove, an incredibly comfortable bed and a really hot shower! It was very comfortable. The staff was great, everyone was super friendly and helpful. We took a lesson with Roger who was an AWESOME x-c skiing instructor! By the end of the lesson, both my husband and I were totally confident in our abilities, and enjoyed the rest of the day skiing! We can't wait to go back and highly recommend it.

Trails are clearly marked, beautiful scenery. We took ski lesson, it was very useful, and good value for the money for those who stay there.
We really enjoyed skiing there, and we will be back.

“The perfect retreat”

Well run place. Good ski school for kids. Enough track to keep you busy. Try the Finnish delicacies at the little restaurant.
