Punkaharju – In the land of a thousand lakes

“Autumn is all about ‘ruska’. This is the term Finns use to describe the magnificent colours of the autumn leaves. The spectacular phenomenon shrouds the landscape in rich, warm tones, with the variety of conifers and deciduous trees, berries and moss providing a brilliant spectacle of greens, browns, yellows and reds. Grab your camera, roam through the forests and record these magical moments. You can take particularly beautiful images in Koli, which is often used for advertising shoots, or in the small village of Kerimäki, home to the world's largest wooden church.”

Robert Baltus, Resort Manager Punkaharju

Experience Finland at first hand in the resort in Punkaharju, in an authentic log cabin with an open fireplace, sauna and veranda. Switch off in unspoilt nature. On hikes, or while cross-country skiing in winter, with a little luck you may encounter an elk or a lynx. In the evening the Grillhouse offers culinary delights.

Escape with your family for a while from your daily routine. An ideal location is the resort in Punkaharju with 39 bungalows, located directly on the banks of Lake Puruvesi. It provides sufficient space for you to clear your head and organise your thoughts. The children will also love it. The resort is an ideal starting point for the most diverse activities in nature. Whether under the midnight sun in summer or in the mystic twilight of winter: The crystal-clear lakes and endless forests are unforgettable. Collect berries and mushrooms on your hikes. The lake magically reflects the sunrays - a scene that will energise you. Your gaze can sweep across the endless expanse of nature. Here you can enjoy existence and philosophise on life. The resort's own swimming bay with sunbathing lawn and beach sauna ensure pure bathing pleasure in the summer. In the winter, there are well prepared cross-country skiing trails through the fairytale snowy landscape. Whether you visit in winter or summer – cast out your fishing line and try your luck. Ice fishing really is a unique experience. In between, the private sauna in the log cabin provides moments of natural relaxation. When night falls, the Kota Grillhouse, with its interior and exterior fires, is a popular place for our guests to meet and spend time together.
