Ilomäki Farm

Authentic rural tourism

At Ilomäki farm, we offer our visitors cosy and comfortable cottage accommodation, beautiful nature, Finnish traditions and plenty of peace and seclusion all year round, close to the city of Seinäjoki, in western Finland.

Just the experience of spending time living on a real working farm is enough to make the visit really special for our guests. If you’re looking for more to do, however, many local attractions are within easy reach of the farm, including amusement parks like Powerpark and the Duudson Activity Park, while Ähtäri Zoo is a chance for you to get face-to-face with a wide range of Finnish animals and even a pair of giant pandas. Thanks to our central location, our farm is ideally placed for exploring the wider region, and you can always be sure of a warm welcome when you return to the farm after a busy day of sightseeing and activities.

Activities and animals

There are plenty of opportunities for laid-back fun for families and small groups alike, including walks, outdoor games and enjoying an authentic Finnish löyly in the sauna.

Activities at the farm

There are two forest trails, 1 km and 3 km in length, on the farm’s grounds. Along the forest trail, there is an 8-hole disc golf course and a barbecue shelter, which guests are welcome to use. You can also forage for berries and mushrooms. The floodlit Koukkari running/ski trail is 4 km away and you can choose from 1–5 km trails and the long-distance ice skating trail (1,500 m) is 6 km away. View video of the long-distance ice skating track.

We have a choice of bikes and snowshoes available for your use on the farm, as well as a range of games. In the winter we have “vipukelkka” a kind of a sleigh version of a merry go round which is a firm favourite with the children. There is also a range of toys and games available for children, including buckets and spades, swings, ride-on toy tractors, hobby horses and a toy cow, which is perfect for practising your milking technique!

The hosts can give you a ride on the tractor or the buggy, or teach you the art of axe throwing. You won’t get bored as there’s always something to do, no matter the weather. Just as most Finnish homes, most of the cottages have their own saunas, plus with all the cottages you can rent hot tubs for your use.


  • In winter you can go skiing, take a hike in snowshoes, or defy the freezing temperatures and enjoy a bath in the hot tub under the stars and moonlight.
  • In spring you can discover how nature wakes up after the long cold winter.
  • On sunny and warm summer days, enjoy bicycle rides or try disc golf on the farm’s eight-basket disc golf course, and don’t forget the possibilities of our magic light summer nights.
  • In the autumn you can delight in the nature’s gifts by picking mushroom and wild berries in the forests.

Farm animals

We have learned from our experience how important spending time with our animals is to some of our visitors. We try our best to make this a memorable experience, especially for the children visiting us. In addition to our family and guests, Ilomäki farm is home to horses, sheep, rabbits, cats and a dog.
