My place is close to Kemijoki river and the Kemi SnowCastle. You’ll love my place because of magical views like auroras and permanent snow on winter. There is also husky farm and other winter activities like skiing, skating, sledging, available nearby. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travelers. Breakfast included. Santa Claus village only is two hours away from my house. Unique in the world Santa's seaside office in 8 km from the house.

The space

Excellent chances to spot and see Northern light! Close situation to Kemijoki river makes it possible to spot auroras right on the backyard. Ice fishing on the Kemijoki river that is 50 metres from the apartment. Huskies farm also nearby. SnowCastle in Kemi 10 km and Icebreaker Sampo 15 km. Santa Claus village only is two hours away from my house. Unique in the world Santa's seaside office in 8 km from the house. One of the largest Arctic zoo - ZooRanua Wildlife Park only one and a half hours away from here, where you can see polar bears and more than 50 species of other arctic animals. There is St. Michael's Church about 4 km from my home. That is a real medieval stone church, which was founded in 1550 and this place is definitely worth to see also.

We only stayed for one night at Marko's place but we had a really nice stay. The communication was really smooth and even though Marko couldn't be there himself his brother and mother were really friendly. Thanks so much for the nice dinner!

We had a good time staying at Marko´s place. Marko and Satu, his mum, are both very nice and friendly and did everything to make our stay pleasant. We stayed for 11 days and it didn´t get boring because the area is perfect for different winter activities and you can get to other places easily by bus or train from Kemi. It was a great winter wonderland for us and we even had the chance to spot northern lights, which was amazing! We can definitely recommend the place for others.

We stayed 2 nights in Marko's house with his mum. They are really friendly we have spoken a lot. To do the Christmas Eve there was a pleasure. Marko's took time to explain the different activities. Close from his house there is a husky farm and we can go there by ski. I recommende that house! Thank u and see u soon Marko.

Oikein lämminhenkinen kokemus. Majoitus vastasi kuvattua ja kohde oli siisti. Mukavia ja välittömiä ihmisiä jotka ottivat avosylin matkalaisen vastaan. Lisäksi paljon hyviä neuvoja ja vinkkejä lähialueista. Voin suositella!
