Old Times Glamping – Overnight in a Haybarn

Experience the fresh air, sounds of nature and the scent of hay while digging in your own hole in the soft hay matress. Hay barn can accommodate 10 persons at the time and what you need to bring yourself is sleeping bag (or blankets). In the morning there is available for breakfast, proper coffee and pancakes cooked over an open campfire or hole breakfast if you like. Sleeping overnight is free of charge but if you like to rent a mosquito net or order brekfast or evening snack, then we will charge for them.

Overnight in a haybarn takes you back to times when Finland got it’s indepencendy, hundred years ago. At that time there was no machinery used in farming, it was just the farmer´s family who did all the work in collecting and drying the hay for horses and life stock for winter, staying overnight in storages which were built from axe-carved logs.

Logs were piled up in a loose style to guarantee proper air ventilation at the barn in order to preserve the dry hay as tasteful as possible. In this kind of barn it´s also nice to sleep. What´s best – no noisy neighbours! As the location of the hay barn is by the famous The Silent People – art attraction, consisting of hundreds of hay heads, so we can guarantee that these guys won´t disturb your night sleep!

The Café-Restaurant is also nominated as Tasteful Countryside -company of the year 2020 in Kainuu region. They were also granted the key flag symbol as a sign of Finnish work.
