Hostel and apartments in the middle of Lapland
Welcome to Visatupa – a unique country holiday place at a modern dairy cattle farm. Location next to a beautiful lake in the middle of countryside and forest gives you a good opportunity to enjoy a peaceful break during your travel.
Visatupa is a 40 years old family enterprise located in the very middle of Finnish Lapland, 80 km north from Rovaniemi and 50 km south from Sodankylä close to the road E75. It takes less than 1 hour to reach Santa Claus Village or Rovaniemi airport, and Rovaniemi city is just 10 minutes further.
Visatupa has beds for a total of 50 people.
The farm lies on the beautiful Saarijärvi lake. In the summer, you can swim in it, or take a boat and go fishing. In the winter a hole through the ice is open, so after sauna you can dip in the cold water instead of rolling in the snow. It’s also a perfect spot to observe northern lights.
Northern lights – Aurora Borealis
You can see northern lights just when you step outside of the house. Lack of street lights give you a good possibility to see this wonderful nature phenomena between September and March. Best place to watch them is on the lake where are no trees blocking the view to the northern sky.
Gifts of nature
Surrounding nature gives us berries, mushrooms, fishes, elk and reindeer meat. Our farm offer vegetables, herbs, beef meat and milk & cream.
From these ingredients we prepare our delicious and plentiful meals, which are served in the buffet table in the main building.
