A Small Wilderness Cabin on Peaceful Spot

  • 4 min read

Kokkolampi is the best, a small wilderness cottage on a peaceful spot at the shore of Kokkolampi lake. The beach is in good shape and there is a rowingboat available. The small cabin building includes a small room with two sofa beds that convert into sofas and a kitchen corner. The cabin features a fireplace, a kitchen sink (no running), solar panel lighting, and small fridge (which also works using solar electricity). Water can be taken to the spring, which is just a short walk away. Guests can also bring water with them. There is a sauna on the lakeside of the cabin. A separate room has 2 beds and a dressing area. A wood-heated sauna stove is available, which requires water to be brought from the pond.

The Kokkolampi cabin has electric lighting with a solar panel, heating with an electric stove, no fireplace, no hot waterpipe (water must come from the lake or well), drinking from a spring, water pipe, outhouse, liquid propane hob (no oven), campfire.

The Finnish cabin is only 17 km from Suomu. Posio 60 kms, Posio 57 kms, Ruka 70kms, Kuusamo 95kms. There are many hunting areas in the area and good berry picking areas. You can pick berries even from the wood-cabin yard. You can fish in the pond with line and hook. The Salla Collective Forest (Sallan Yhteismetsa), hunting grounds 10 km, Vilma–Savina 12km, Posio 12km, Kemijarvi 24 km are all state-owned hunting areas. The client brings their own towels and bed linen, and cleans the cabin himself (which cannot be purchased as an additional service). The cabin can be reached by car in the summer.

The cabin is located above the Arctic Circle in a beautiful area of Finland. It is home to 396 lakes and ponds, and is near the well-known fells Pyhatunturi in the north and Suomutunturi south. Paavali Ollinpoika Honen, who arrived from Niskakyla in 1580, first settled the area. This part of Eastern Lapland has many famous skiing resorts like Suomu, Luosto and Pyha. The area around Lake Kemijarvi, which is surrounded by forest-filled hills, is a place of outstanding beauty. It is also home to trout, pike and perch. It is also the northernmost lake of Finland with an indigenous population (Finns call it pikeperch, while Americans call it walleye).

Wood sculptures are a major draw in this region. The Puustelli Art Centre has a great collection, and you can also see more in the town centre of Kemijarvi. The Ethnographic Museum and the Church are two other notable places to see in Kemijarvi. Piiskapetaja can be found in Virastotalo’s inner courtyard. This is a method for civic punishment that was used in the 17th- and 18th centuries.
