Isokenkäisten Klubi

The tranquillity of arctic nature

Isokenkäisten Klubi is a family company which provides high-quality tourist services in Kuusamo, North-East Finland.

The Klubi is situated by the peaceful, clear-water Lake Heikinjärvi, only two kilometres from the Russian border zone. The lodges of Isokenkäisten Klubi are completely surrounded by the quiet of the northern nature.

We welcome you to stay in our Wilderness Hotel Kortteeri or in one of our comfortable log cabins, relax in the gentle warmth of our Seven Star Smoke Sauna, take a refreshing dip into the cool lake water, and enjoy traditional Finnish home-cooked meals prepared with fresh, local ingredients. We also have plenty of fun-filled activities to choose from – every season of the year.

Seven star smoke sauna

Before you have experienced it, you cannot understand the blissful feeling which takes over the body after a bath in a smoke sauna. The gentle warmth and scent of our Seven Star Smoke Sauna leaves you with an ever-lasting memory. Our sauna master takes care of heating the sauna, and he also knows how to make the traditional, fragrant birch whisks. The sauna is heated with dry birch logs. Heating a smoke sauna is not a job for a busy man. Bathing in a smoke sauna is a unique experience, with peat moss treatment and a dip in the lake water, in summer from the pier, in winter through a hole in the ice. All this leaves a wonderful, relaxed feeling to the entire body.

The Isokenkäisten Klubi Seven Star Smoke Sauna is located near the main building, on the shore of Lake Heikinjärvi. The sauna seats 15 people.

In summer it is lovely to cool down on the terrace, admire the sunset and take a dip in the cool and clear lake water. In winter the terrace is illuminated by Northern Lights and thousands of stars. They are clearly visible in the dark night sky, with no city lights to disturb the view. The refreshing dip into the icy lake water is an experience you will never forget.


We serve snacks to the saunas, sauna sausages and house salad, or a savoury Klubi pie (fish or meat) and salad. Our saunas are licenced for alcoholic drinks.
