It was not easy to find the place, I think that without GPS we would be around even today. It was a little more to ga from the city than expected and the 4 kilometers in (on) the dard snow was frightening. The services worked the sauna was great, it is a pity that FIFI did not work in the small houses, only in the large one. We were happy there.

The road to this farmhouse was snowy clean; not any trace of some car or foothsteps. Even not of a rendeer or a moose.. Nowbody was to be found there at one oçlock in the night, besides a lot of cows in the barn. So, I took my Phone and got the owner. A nice talk about driving in the north and quickly exchance of papers I got a most exclusive, beautifull house with room and bed quite in the wildness of finnish Lappland. Always remember Hostel Visatupa.

If you are looking for nature, Cross Country Skiing, Snow Shoeing, Northern lights and a non-touristy Lapland Experience, this is the perfect place for you. The host and his wife are really nice and more than helpful. He even came to tell us every time he spotted northern lights. Just keep in mind to bring cash and food (in case you want to use the kitchen) because the place is basically far from everything except the beautiful nature surroundings.

Wir verbrachten einmalig schöne, sehr erholsame Winterferien: sehr freundliche, hilfsbereite und unkomplizierte Herbergsfamilie, viele Wintersportmöglichkeiten,einzigartige Natur, inkl. Nordlicht, Ruhe, Erholung und Entspannung. Wir haben in einem kleinen heimeligen Haus inkl. eigener Sauna gewohnt und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alle unsere Erwartungen wurden in Allem um vieles übertroffen. Diese Tage werden uns in Erinnerung bleiben, einmalig, eindrücklich, bewegend.

The place is basically far from everything, but perfect if you just want to Hike and wander through amazing landscapes. We were given Snowshoes, Cross-country skies and Kick-Sledges for free to explore the Nature around us and regretted, we didn't have more time there. It's also a great place, if you travel by car, because it's easy to go to Rovaniemi and do something there. The Arktikum and Santa Claus Village can be recommended.

Visatupa is a really good hostel. If you want to have a quiet time in lapland, surrounded by finnish forrest, far from the crowd, then this is the perfect place. Despite of its location, there are quite many activity u can do there: snow shoes, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snow mobile. The host also really helpful. He will pick you and drop you from the nearest bus stop when u needed. I enjoyed my stay there.

Thank you for your visit! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay even the weather was pretty cloudy and no chance to see the northern lights! We wish you have a good start for the New Year 2015!

Me ha parecido el mejor Hostelling de toda Finlandia; comodidad, amabilidad, buena comida y el anfitrión muy servicial. Para ver las auroras boreales es el mejor sitio y el dueño del hostelling te avisa cuando las auroras están a punto de salir. El mejor, no coment…!
