Tietotunturi, or ”the Mountain of Wisdom”, offers a perfect choice for larger groups looking for quality cottage accommodation just at the feet of cross-country skiing tracks and the Pyhä ski center.
Tietotunturi is a log cottage built in the year 1993 and covers a total area of 600m2. In the cottage you will find 7 separate bedrooms, of which each is equipped with two beds, their own bathroom and shower facilities as well as a flat screen TV. The heart of the cottage is certainly the large stone fireplace and a large living room with a balcony. On the lower floor, you will find a common sauna, a fireplace room as well as a game room. There are also two dormitories located on the lower floor that can hold up to 12 guests.
It is nice to gather into the large dining/living room to spend some quality time with others by socialising, playing board games or having a movie night all together. Through the large windows you can see the slopes of Pyhä and go and enjoy the fresh air on the balcony.
The seven rooms of the cottage are dispatched onto two corridor wings and each room door can be locked by key. The rooms resemble those of a hotel, as each of them have their own shower and bathroom facilities. So even though you are traveling in a large group, you can still enjoy your own peace.
The newly renewed sauna offers a great experience under the little star-like lights blinking on the ceiling. For those who are into more extreme things, in just a few steps you are outside and able to take a roll in the snow like a real Finn! After the sauna it’s nice to sit down in the fireplace room in front of an open fire.
If the temperature gets too low, or you just start to feel competitive, you can find a game room in our cottage. There you can enjoy playing billiards, table tennis, electric darts or just simply watch TV while others play. So if you’re feeling a little lazy to go out, you can find activities inside as well!
