Flavours of Kuusamo Lapland
ENJOY THE NATURAL LUXURY OF KUUSAMO LAPLAND
The charm of this part of the world lies in its natural beauty. Our region houses several national parks with unique natural features and beautiful hiking routes. The never-ending light of the Midnight Sun is an experience rivalled only by the magical colours of the Northern Lights. The darkness of autumn and winter nights is lit by millions of stars that stud the sky, and the light of the moon that creates blue shadows over the snowy landscape. We offer you plenty of activities for your holiday. Enjoy our local food made from wild ingredients that have been harvested from our lakes and forests. Have a go at maybe the best of all Finnish innovations – the sauna!

Isokenkäisten Klubi is located only a few kilometres from the exotic Russian border. We provide unique quality accommodation, Wild Food meals, and authentic smoke sauna experiences.
