Thank you for visiting Hotel korpikartano and staying the week with us. I hope you were lucky with the northern lights and got some good photos. Thank you for mentioning that we are lucky not to have any light pollution here in Menesjärvi.
Hopefully we can welcome you back one day!
I cannot praise this hotel highly enough. Great staff. Excellent food. Well situated and a perfect location to view the northern lights. On the side of a lake which was perfect for snow mobiling, dog sledding, cross country skiing and reindeer farming.
Thank you for visiting Hotel Korpikartano and leaving us your lovely feedback. This will make our staff smile.
Hopefully we can welcome you back one day. There are so many other things you can do on our Menesjärvi lake also summer time.
You drop into a different world at this hotel on the edge of a vast ice lake. There is practically no light pollution and you are free to enjoy your beautiful surroundings as you please with nature trails, snow shoeing, x-country skiing, tobogganing, sauna. Other activities can be made by arrangement such as husky sledging, ice fishing, reindeer farm visits etc. And of course, if you are lucky, you will see the Northern Lights. The hotel staff do all they can to make you feel comfortable and to enjoy your visit.
Thank you for taking the time and leaving us your feedback. Sounds like you really enjoyed the nature and took some time to explore the surroundings of the hotel. Hopefully you also had a change to see the northern lights. We will share your kind feedback with the staff and they will be happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully we can welcome you back to Hotel Korpikartano some day!
Greetings from Korpikartano staff
This is a superb base to watch for the aurora easily. You can pop out to the frozen lake any time to check, right on th doorstep. Lovely cosy hotel. Not posh, but warm and comfortable with excellent friendly staff and lovely food. Set menu, however we really enjoyed all the food. Warm clothing can be provided. It was part of our package wit The Aurora Zone. Best trip was to Petri Mattus reindeer farm. Don’t miss it. So grateful to everyone. Sophie provided excellent aurora photography guidance andledan evening snow shoe walk near the hotel. Loads of animal tracks in the deep snow. All in all an unforgettable holiday. Do bring plenty of warm clothes. It’s cold in winter! Being well within the arctic circle and away from the coast increases your chance of seeing the aurora too.
Thank you for your visit and your kind words, we will share them with colleagues. So nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Korpikartano and our activities. Hopefully we can host you another time in Lapland and in Korpikartano in the future.
Aurora Zone has also "Double Aurora tours" to Korpikartano in Autumn time when Aurora is reflecting from the lake surface.
Warm greetings from Korpikartano team
Superb hotel in beautiful, remote area of northern Finland beside a frozen lake with great chance of seeing the Northern lights (we were lucky enough to see them 3 nights in a row.) All staff were approachable, knowledgeable, friendly, kind and helpful; they helped to make the holiday extra special Thanks to Sophie and Marti who were our main guides and to the lovely cook whose food was delicious too. All outdoor equipment including skis, snowshoes, boots and thermal clothing was available to use. Highly recommended. An unforgettable holiday.
It was a pleasure hosting you in Korpikartano, thank you for your visit and feedback. Great to hear that you saw aurora even 3 nights, so pleased for you! Nice to know that you enjoyed your stay in Korpikartano. We will share your feedback with all colleagues. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again!
