Welcome to Koiteli located by river Kiiminkijoki to spend a wonderful day outdoors in good company! The word Koiteli comes from Sami language and it means “in the middle” - here in Koiteli you get to enjoy fun outdoor activities in an island located in the middle of two rapids.
Beautiful surroundings, ancient trees and the silence give a feeling of being also in the center of yourself.
You get to try walking on snowshoes, cross country skiing and traditional kick sledge ‘potkuri’ ride! All these activities will give you the taste of traditional Finnish ways of moving in snow in the early days. A local herder tells you stories of reindeer and reindeer herding. And of course everyone will experience a short ride in a sledge pulled by the reindeer.
