Valkeisen Loma Farm
Experience beautiful countryside in Ähtäri
We are Auni and Altti Syrjänen, owners of Valkeisen Loma Farm and we welcome you to stay at our farm. We are open year-round and offer comfortable accommodation in a newly built country hotel or in rustic, yet cosy apartments and cottages.
Our farm is situated in Ähtäri, tucked away in a secluded spot and it is the perfect location for a relaxing and peaceful farm holiday. You may wish to enjoy some treks and walks and even be tempted to do some foraging in the nearby woods.
The great outdoors surrounds us, and it is easy to have plenty of fun trying outdoor activities such as cycling, rowing or swimming in the lake. Our rowing boat and kayak are available for our guests for free. We also have bicycles for hire.
We are ideally placed for visits to Ähtäri Zoo with its Snow Panda House, Ähtäri golf course and other attractions. Ähtäri Zoo with its Nordic animals and giant pandas is a mere 10 minutes’ drive away.
Whether you are looking for B&B or self-catering accommodation for individuals, couples, families or small groups, Valkeisen Loma is a great choice. We offer bed and breakfast accommodation during summer months, but at all the other times, breakfast is available on request.
At Valkeisen Loma you can enjoy the traditional way of Finnish farm life. The farmyard is surrounded by forest on all sides, while Lake Valkeinen is just a stone’s throw away. Along the lakeside shore you will find a sauna and a beach for swimming. Lake Valkeinen is a clear-water lake and perfect for fishing – both summer and wintertime!
In the farmyard, you may come across our resident dogs, cats, bunnies, sheep, horse, pony and of course – reindeer!
When you visit our reindeer park, you’ll feel like you’re in Lapland. You can feed our reindeer with lichen or you may wish to join the reindeer walk through neighbouring woodlands.
The property has 3 rentable sauna departments, including a beach sauna and smoke sauna. Guests can rent bicycles, canoes and cross-country ski equipment on site. Children can play on the playground or see the animals on the farm during summer.
When you visit our reindeer park, you’ll feel as if you’re in Lapland. Meet our friendly reindeer and learn about these arctic creatures.
At the moment, we have eight reindeer living in our park. Apprentice reindeers Visa and Valhalla are currently learning to pull sleighs. The other reindeer are Veronica, Pikku-V, Vilma, Veera and Vilja. The youngest one is Wagner, who was born in 2021.
All our reindeer are tame and love lichen, which you can feed them during your visit. You can visit the reindeer park and make friends with the herd, or even join the reindeer walk through nearby woods. Alternatively, you are welcome to buy a bag of lichen from the reception and feed the reindeer over the fence.
