Cute as a reindeer’s button nose, this log cabin sits in the Finnish wilderness. The shores of Lake Vanttausjärvi are 20 metres away where you can take a boat out in summer for a spot of fishing (a rowing boat and outboard are included with a stay here). But it’s winter when this place really comes into its own. A cosy classic cabin vibe awaits, as towering pines are laden with snow and the scenery is blissfully silent. You may even spot the Northern Lights above. As snow blankets the land, keep warm in the outdoor hot tub or with a session in the garden sauna. Then there’s the lakeside summer kitchen, which could be a misnomer as it’s heated and a delight to cook in during the winter months too. Perhaps grill some of your own freshly-caught fish in the wood fire here. Inside, this home has all the trappings of a traditional log cabin – antler candelabra, whitewashed log walls on display and a wood-burning stove at the heart of the home. A picture-frame window displays the snowy landscape proudly, particularly enjoyable when curled up with a cup of cocoa on the L-shaped sofa. A full kitchen provides everything you need for self-catering, and the closest shop is a ten-minute snowmobile ride (or even-minute drive) away in Vanttauskoski.

Home truths

    In winter, the best way to get around is by snowmobile, which can be rented from the owner

    The nearest snowmobile trail starts 2km away and connects Rovaniemi and Kemijärvi

    Your host can provide sledges, a Stiga-brand sled, ice drill and ice fishing rods

    The closest shop is in Vanttauskoski, 10km away so having a car (or snowmobile) is recommended

    At capacity, two guests will be on the sofa bed in the living room

Local guide


About Finland

Land of a thousand lakes, Finland is all about embracing the outdoors. In the south, it feels more like a series of islands as huge swathes of lake cut through the land. The way of life here is fish caught by your own hand, and smoked on the cabin terrace. Pine trees tower above and woodland walks and cycling is the way to immerse in nature. Summer brings endless daytime...
