As well as the brooks at the head of the river, two lakes rich in fish, and two different types of river guarantee visitors a huge variety of experiences in the great outdoors. Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay all to yourself in the traditional buildings at Lammin Pirtti beside the Lamminkoski rapids on the Kiiminkijoki river or splash out on the more luxurious eco-cottage Villa Wuotanka on the shore of Lake Isovuotunkijärvi. The buildings and camping pitches nestle in a traditional farming landscape.
Vuoton Joutsen can provide catering by agreement for groups all year round.
