Welcome to Finland

28 December 2019. Upon arrival at Kajaani Airport you will be met and transferred to the Hotel Kalevala in Kuhmo. The transfer is approximately one and a half hours. Upon arrival at the hotel you will check in, enjoy a welcome drink and have dinner.

Try some winter activities

This morning we will have breakfast together with our host who will explain to you how the next few days will go and introduce you to the optional activities on offer. Later on we take a 1 hour snowmobile safari over 15 - 20 km heading through the stunning scenery, past snow covered trees. There will be 2 people per snowmobile and thermal overalls will be provided. 

This afternoon is free to try your hand at lots of different winter activities from Nordic walking to cross country skiing to husky safaris. We can also take advantage of more saunas and jacuzzi. 

Snowmobile Safari

After breakfast this morning we will get a chance to have a taster of some of the available activities. You will take a short horse sleigh, Reindeer sleigh ride and snowmobile ride. Later on hot juice and traditional sausages can be enjoyed over an open fire. 

This afternoon is free for more optional activities, why not try your hand at ice fishing or if you are feeling brave enough swimming the Pajakkakoski rapids. Later on we have dinner and more sauna and jacuzzi time. 

New Year's Eve

After breakfast, this morning we will get a real taste of this winter wonderland as we try our hand at snow shoeing on a 2 hour snow shoe tour along the Taiga forest and across the frozen lake before enjoying a cup of hot juice. Later on we sit around the fire in the lobby and watch some tin casting - a tradition on new year's eve to make little horse shoes as a sign of good luck. There will also be a fortune teller on hand to tell you about your future for the following year. 

This evening there is a New Year Gala Dinner and disco. Just before midnight we'll move into the winter garden to enjoy the fireworks and the countdown to 2020. The party will continue inside in the bar with dancing and a DJ. 

New Year's Day

Happy New Year! This morning enjoy a lie in as there will be a late breakfast. Today is a free day to relax and enjoy some more optional activities if you wish. Otherwise you can just recover from last night's revelry and enjoy the hotel's facilities including the wellness area. You may wish to watch the Kick Sled competition that will be taking place in the village today. 

Before dinner we will head out to the New Year's Day concert at the Kuhmo Art's Centre - a short bus drive away.

Free day for activities

Today is at leisure for more optional activities. You can also go shopping for some last minute souvenirs or just simply relax at the hotel. Tonight we have dinner and a special Finnish folklore evening of dance, music and stories. We can also take advantage of more saunas and jacuzzi.
