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

The cottages are located within walking distance from each other and your nearest neighbour is about 500 meters away. You are surrounded bt countryside and wilderness, so if you want to experience the quietness and the peace of nature, then these cottages are ideal for that.
A well known fishing lake Simojärvi is only about 10 km away and you can catch, for example, salmon trout from this lake.

During the wintertime there is about 15 km long cross country skiing track. Officially it starts from Piittisjärvi 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 an opportunity for dog sledding/safari.


There is a 9-hole disc gold track in the woods next to the cottages. And next to the track is a campfire spot and toilets.
The track is free to use.
