The story of Pohjolan Pirtti
Pohjolan Pirtti is located in Käkilehto, Vuotunki village, in Eastern Kuusamo, about 30 minutes drive from Ruka and Kuusamo centre. This area is one of the oldest Finnish settlements in Kuusamo and the history of our family estate dates back to the 1680's. Käkilehto area in Vuotunki is a special gem in Northern Finland as it is one of the only villages which was not destroyed by the turmoil of the second world war. Our cafeteria services can be found in the Pohjola family home, which was built in 1891.
Our cowhouse has been renovated into a sauna building, hosting 3 different saunas and a wood heated hot tub. Electric saunas can be booked with a short notice, even for the same day. If you wish to experience a real Finnish sauna treat including birch and juniper sauna remedies, our wood heated sauna and hot tub require 5 hours preparation, so please book minimum 24 hours in advance.
