We had a nice skiing holiday in Lysti-Kämä. The cottage is small, but comfortable and has everything you need. The nearby nature trail with its lean-to was a nice route for snowshoeing. The sauna was great! It's a nice car ride to Rovaniemi, e.g. Santa Park and other attractions in the city, if you're interested. Miika is a very nice and helpful host!

Perfect. You can rent snowshoes and have a snowride trip with Miika. The cottage is very cosy, confortable and private (very independante and apart from the other houses). The bed is very large ad confortable and there is everything you need for a small a long stay in the cottage. The sauna is a few meters away, easy to used ans only for the cottage. It is pretty far from everything (we were looking for that but you need a car) few meter from a big lake where you can walk-on during winter. Perfect stay to rest and discover the area.

Many thanks to the owner/landlord for taking care of us. The cottage had everything you needed and more. The sauna provided warm and soft baths. There was plenty to do and exercise for a couple of days in the nearby countryside; snowshoeing and skiing. Good memories remain and there are plans to come again - alone or together.

I recommend this place. The cottage was in a clean condition. The host gave us good tips about the spots and we didn't have to return empty handed. The snowmobile and sledge could be rented. The ice was still good at the end of April.
