For groups we offer a discount from the normal accommodation price depending on the group size and room types. You can see examples from the Price-list: group prices page.

To the basic packages we can add different kinds of activities, tours in the area nearby and evening entertainment with local performers. We can also plan travel program for your group by your wishes with our wide knowledge about North Karelian attractions and activities.

We organize boat trips in the National landscape of Koli: see some examples in the Activities price-list. Summer isn`t the only time when it is worthwhile to visit North Karelia: in the autumn nature wears in beautiful colours and you can do mushroom- and berry picking-trips to the forests nearby and to the islands of Pielinen. In the wintertime you can on the lake Pielinen, do cross-country skiing, snowshoing or downhill skiing at the Koli hills nearby. Also dogsledge- and snowmobile safaris can be organized.
