Midsummer and midnight sun scene lake Piittisjarvi


Hakoniemi cottages are located next to lake Piittisjarvi which is about 5 km long and 500 meters wide. You can fish on this lake. Naturally there are lots of opportunities of camping and picking up different berries.

The cottages are located within walking distance from each other and your nearest neighbour is about 500 meters away. Surrounding is country side and wilderness so if you want to experience quiet and peace of nature then these cottages are ideal for that.

Well known fishing lake Simojarvi is only about 10 km away and you can catch for example salmon trout from this lake.

At winter time there is about 15 km long cross country skiing track. Officially it starts from Piittisjarvi school which is about 1.5 km away from the cottages but normally there are lots of snow mobile tracks on the lake where it's also good to ski on.

For extra arrangement/cost there is dog safari available.
