Cooperation between guesthouses began twenty years ago between Äksyt Ämmät, Laitalan Lomat, Männikkölän Pirtti and Puukarin Pysäkki. Working together we will do the marketing, product design, we maintained trails, and of course we help and sparring each other work. Each house has its strengths, Puukari food, Laitalan Lomat theirs facilities, Äksyt Ämmät tourism know-how and Männikkölän Pirtti Karelian pasties. We offer close to nature, sportive holidays; fine nature experiences, which will find it is a time to enjoy. We want to make trips and holidays as environmentally friendly. Decisions take into account the adverse effects of the environment. These principles include: use of public transport, local small hotels and tourism enterprises in favor of dining services, local food, as well as the provision of ordinary everyday pleasures; mushroom trip, breakfast outdoors, wild berry jams, wood-fired sauna and herbal tea. Small areas will meet a host of people and get a feel for their way of life, can chat or you can enjoy the tranquility of guesthouses in and around the nature.
