information about the destination

We are a small tourism company based on the premises of the old village school of Askankylä. Our business is based on ecological operation, recycling and environmental protection. We offer accommodation in three well-appointed apartments, or sites for campervans and tents in the yard. You will find us on the shores of the spring-fed Valkeainen Lake with its clean waters, in the northern part of Puolanka municipality on road 78.

In addition to accommodation, we operate a summer café from late May till the end of September. We also cater for pre-booked visitors, mainly with foods made from organic ingredients and local produce. For years, we have focused on serving local forest mushrooms in different forms, both in the café and as part of the meals cooked by us.

Surroundings and activities

On the shores of Valkeainen Lake, either a sauna with a wood-burning stove or, on request, a smoke sauna will be heated for you. The highlight of the sauna experience is diving into the clear waters of the lake. Our facilities have also been used for such special occasions as birthday parties, family gatherings and other small-scale events.
