Himos Holiday Centre
The winter season in Himos Holiday Centre lasts up to six months, followed by a sunny springtime, a warm and active summer and a colorful autumn. We have developed the Himos Holiday Centre for you as a year-round holidaypark with activities and relaxing holidays for grown-ups as well as for small visitors.
Come, take some time for yourself, your family and friends, experience with us the Finnish nature.
Our apartment was just great and included a private sauna and wood burner for a nice fire in the evening (a full stock of dry wood was available in a shelter). Kitchen equipment was excellent. Rooms were small but comfortable. Two bikes were provided free of charge. I only regret that our dining room had a view on the next building instead of the lake. Otherwise everything was perfect.
We knew that Himos is popular during the winter season, but we didn't realise, that there was no services at all in summer. This is sad beacause all those hundred of cottages and restaurants are staying empty during the summer season. It could be developed into a successful summer resort with its golf course, but that would require some efforts. People will not come when tere is no services and the service providers will stay away as there are no customers - a classic egg/chicken scenario.
It was not the apartment which we get information and there could we not open the windows system and the other bedroom was in upstare and we did not know that and therefore it was very unconfirtable and apartments situation was terrible because it was not the apartment which information we got before
New cottages with all you need. The nearest town with shops is not too far away. You'll find a bigger town Jyväskylä close enough just to visit for one day. The same applies to Mänttä which is even closer and has excellent museums. I recommend to visit those.
A wonderful location for winter holidays. Villas are well furnished and equipped with everything needed even drying machines ensuring nonstop skiing and warm clothes. Skiing slopes are for all levels. Restaurants and cafes provide good service even at peak hours. We would definitely visit again.
