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

Ankunft mit dem Flieger in Rovaniemi. Schon bei der Fahrt zur Unterkunft sahen wir die ersten Rentiere am Straßenrand. Die Hütte war für unsere Ansprüche mehr als ausreichend. Als beruflicher Hotelbettenschläfer war ich vor allem über die sehr guten Betten und die super Bettwäsche höchst erfreut. Besondere Freude machte mir natürlich der Holzofen. Einheizen und das Knistern des Feuers hat Mann nicht alle Tage. Wir verbrachten mit den Kindern die meiste Zeit bedingt durch das ausgezeichnete Wetter und den nicht vorhandenen Mücken im Freien. Bootfahren, Kanufahren, Standup paddeln, saunieren und abkühlen im See und natürlich Fischen und Beeren pflücken ließ die Zeit im Nu vergehen. Für das leibliche Wohl war durch die frischen Zutaten ausreichend gesorgt. Schwarzbeerkuchen, Buchteln mit frischer Blaubeer- und Moltebeermarmelade, frische Räucherfische, frisches Sauerteigbrot und vieles mehr konnten wir in geselliger Runde beim Lagerfeuer genießen. Wir kommen wieder!

Wir hatten einen gelungenen Familienurlaub am See genossen. Die Blocksauna und das Schwimmen im See haben die Kinder und wir Erwachsenen voll kennen und lieben gelernt. Entspannte, ruhige Abende am offenen Feuer dauerten meistens die halbe Nacht. Lappland wir kommen wieder!

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
