    The area is breathtaking. Located at the edge of a forest. You don't even have to go anywhere by car as the area itself can be explored on foot. You can enjoy the magical views and silence. There's plenty of cabins but you don't really get to see...

    We loved the cozy cabins with the fireplace. There are trails for cross country skiing and snow shoe hiking. We loved our stay! Everything worked seamlessly. We enjoyed the sauna with the dip in the lake and the husky tour! Thank you Jaana and Seppo!

    Amazing place, comfortable, had everything that we needed. The place is very well-maintained with a clean and organized atmosphere that reflects attention to detail. We did XC Ski all days, bond fire, and many others activities that are available...

Korvala family
Korvalan Kestikievari is the oldest travel business in Lapland and has always been a family establishment. Seppo, with his wife Jaana, are the third generation to be looking after travellers needing a place to stay and rest whilst on their journey in the north. They live on site and can be easily contacted for help with any enquiries. Guests at Korvala can enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings and all the possibilities the wilderness offers. On site there are many outdoor activities and tours available for travellers to fill their days in both summer and winter, eg. fishing, canoeing and swimming in summer, and cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking and ice-fishing in winter. For more adventures, it is possible to join the husky-sledding tours on site (there are more details on Korvala's website). Winter overalls and boots can also be rented.
Seppo's family first settled in the region in 1733, a hundred years before any roads existed in the area. The building of the first road, the Arctic Ocean Passage, was started in Rovaniemi in 1848. It made its way northwards through the wilderness to Sodankylä, and then onwards until it reached the Arctic Ocean in the 1920's. Korvala's homestead was established in 1889 next to the new road. The home and inn, known as Korvalan Kestikievari, was built to accommodate travellers and explorers. In those days, inns were located at 10km intervals and travellers walked, skied or rode in horse drawn sleighs and carriages, driven by the owners of each inn. Every inn offered food and a place to sleep. Korvalan Kestikievari is the only inn and guesthouse in Lapland that has stayed in operation since those days, so has been welcoming travellers for over one hundred years. Nowadays, the accommodation is in SMALL, self-catering lodges, known as Korvala's log cabins. Seppo has built all the cabins and still does the maintenance work. Jaana looks after the husky kennel and the training of the dogs, and runs the sledding tours in winter.
Korvala is ideally located half way between Rovaniemi (the capital of Lapland) and Sodankylä. The Arctic Circle and Santa's Village are a 35 minute drive by car to the south, on the way to Rovaniemi. Rovaniemi itself offers many opportunities for shopping and dining, as well as the famous Arktikum Science Centre and Lapland's Provincial Museum. Luosto and Pyhä National Park are about an hour's drive to the north. The National Park and ski resorts of Pyhä and Luosto offer striking scenery and well-kept hiking and ski trails. Hiring a car makes it easier to visit all these places, but regular and reliable bus services run too. There are also hiking and ski trails around Korvala, providing many opportunities to explore and enjoy the endless wilderness all year round. Easy to access but far from the crowds, Korvala is lucky to be at the same time both easily reachable and remote.
