Metsä Kolo is a small private and ecological resort in Southern Lapland, located only one and a half hours from Rovaniemi. The resort consists of typical Finnish log cabins and the main house at a lake in the middle of a private wilderness. All three log cabins are equipped with luxury beds and high-quality bedding and textiles from natural materials. Our core values are sustainability, locality as well as ecological and easy-going lifestyle. All activities can be enjoyed on the (frozen) lake and in the private forests and swamps around the resort. We do everything from the bottom of our heart, believing in sustainable development, tolerance and authenticity. Come as a guest - leave as a friend, everybody is welcome to Metsä Kolo!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We spent five summer days at Mestä Kolo with our two boys, and we just loved it! When we arrived a reindeer was waiting for us in front of the cabin, sighten upon us from top to toe, and then with a grumpy sight let us pass. We never got really used to them, but were just as excited each time one passed outside the window.
We had some lovely weather and spent the days swimming, sauna bathing, sup boarding, cycling, and visiting nearby attractions like the zoo and the Japan house with delicious original Japanese food! A few mornings I sneaked out while the kids were still sleeping to pick some cloudberries growing just around the corner.
In the middle of this typical idyllic Lapland landscape, the hostess Alexandra gives the place a international twist one did not expect to find there. If she has time to stop chatting with you she has some incredible stories from her trips around the world and living abroad. And her lovely son is just adorable <3

Spent three peaceful nights here in March 2022. The cottage was tidy and spacious, with well-equipped kitchen and the comfiest bed! Our dog loved to roam around the surroundings as well :)
Lots of activities available, but also privacy to just relax. Perfect holiday village for both activity enthusiasts, and relaxation seekers! Will definitely come back during the summer season :)

Ps. Highly recommend to visit Simojärvi-Soppana hiking area for a less crowded hidden gem!

Very nice and comfy family home. Alexa took us in one of her very clean rooms on a short notice.
Shared kitchen and bathroom with family were fine and we really enjoyed the time there.
Beautiful nature around and we got a lot of tips from Alexa who is really a great and friendly host.

Great lakeside sauna and tasteful decoration. Very peaceful location.
Perfect site for a base camp to explore the surrounding wilderness.
Only an hour by car from Rovaniemi.
Winter should be great too!

Kiitos Tuomas hyvästä palautteesta ja tervetuloa talvella eräilemään tai esim. pilkille! Simojärvi-Soppanan luontoalue ei varmasti ole tuttu rovaniemeläisille, lähden mielellään oppaaksi mukaan :) Syksyiset terveiset Metsä Kolosta, Alexa
