The extensive forests of the area are ideal for hunting wildfowl, hares, and moose or even bear. Please, contact us for more information.

Wild Berries and Mushrooms

Autumn is a great time for excursions. Everymans right grants you the permission to pick wild mushrooms or berries in the forest while enjoying the exploding autumn colours.


In summer you can rent in Himmerki boats and kayaks. You can row on the lake Kitka without any hurry only the blue sky reflecting from the surface of the lake.

We have bicycles and different kind of games and darts available at our reception.

In winter ski and snowmobile tracks start directly from our yard. You can rent skis, snowshoes and snowmobiles from our reception.
