Our basecamp is ideally located beside a conserved lake. It has 25 rooms (single, double and triple) and 7 cottages called "Mökit" in Finnish. We also have wooden and electric saunas in front of the lake facing our hotel. A conference and recreation room is also available for seminars and private groups. All our cottages are fully equipped with TV, small kitchen, private bathroom and a small private sauna. They are quite comfortable and functional. You are guaranteed an authentic stay in Finland in the heart of the Hossa natural park. The rooms are more modern and are heated thanks to the lake with the geothermal activities. In order to be closer to nature, the rooms do not have TVs or kitchens.

Eco consept really standed out most of the time: beautiful nature, local activities. No air conditioning or recycling possibility or fridge and average breakfast are only things that I could wish for a upgrade. Local (really small) store is 30km away from hotel, no vegetarian food available from the restaurant made a really hard combo. Nature is beautiful, staff were friendly, parking was super easy.

I hope nobody thinks this operation is run by a Finnish person. At check in we were told that the electric sauna is on and mixed (men and women go at the same time). The lady didn’t know whether the woodfired sauna will be heated by the staff or by visitors. When we went to the sauna there was only one changing room so we had to change in the bathroom. We met some other people who said that the previous night they had waited 1,5 hrs for the woodfired sauna to be heated but it only reached a temperature of 40 degrees so they gave up. For non-Finns, this is way too cold for proper sauna. When we went to have dinner, the young man at reception didn’t speak Finnish. This is not a problem for us but it can be for some. We are in Finland, after all! We got up early the next morning to go canoeing and came back to have breakfast at 8.30. We found two dozen people waiting outside a closed door. Breakfast had started at 7.30 but there was no staff present. Soon a young man biked around to open the door but there was no food prepared. Slowly food started to appear from the kitchen. I’m sure this delay mixed up a lot of people’s plans for the day. The French staff was apologetic but mostly seemed to make sure French customers were happy. A language issue or what, I don’t know. All in all a confusing experience and they need to do a whole lot better before the place can be recommended.

This place is located on the banks of the lake and the views out of the windows are beautiful. The area is so quiet and peaceful, the walks are just what is required to recharge the batteries. Or you can just sit on the balcony and look at the water and trees around. If you are there during the white nights - wants at night the sun going along the horizon and never setting down. Magical!

Unbelievably idyllic. The surrounding Hossa National Park is pure magic. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful(!), and the accommodation itself is very comfortable. Perfect for an active and relaxing retreat. Tranquility abounds - this place is a treat.

My experience with Norwide at Hossa has completely met my expectations of a full immersion into nature and of an active holiday. I was not sure about how much this trip would have been right for my eight year old daughter but she has always felt at ease and has enjoyed being an active part of the crew. A comeback is already on my wish list! I only have a couple of remarks to make the service more distinctive as an ecofriendly destination (I understand that marketing targets are the same everywhere and competition bites hard even at -40° but a few thoughts would not hurt!). When I chose the tour, the snowmobile trip seemed a good idea, but once I arrived in Hossa I felt a bit guilty to disturb the sound of silence, which nowadays is an invaluable asset for everyone. I also believe that snowmobiling is a risky business for the organization. A lot of people drive for the first time and, although the safety rules were very clearly explained and the vehicles were brand new, damages can occur more often than in other nature-friendly activities. If I may stretch the eco-concept a bit, even at risk of sounding picky, choosing quality ingredients for food might also be a good idea: most of what we have eaten was tasty, varied and adequate for outdoor life (and the way of cooking) but I would have appreciated more attention to food provenience and the possibility to choose alternative menus (ie gluten free or veg). Lastly garbage collection rules were not clear as everything was just put in one place and I hardly believe it would have been differentiated afterwards.
