HOTEL KAINUU   Natural beauty – Lakeside charm – Central location

Centrally located in the heart of Kuhmo, Hotel Kainuu offers a wonderful sense of seclusion surrounded by nature. This privately owned establishment offers friendly and professional customer service, delivered with authentic Kuhmo charm. A buffet breakfast is always included in your stay.

Our customers tell us that they love our high quality beds and soft pillows, our neat and tidy rooms and our amazing sauna. To offer our guests a truly authentic Finnish experience, we heat our sauna every evening from Monday to Friday.

Our generous buffet breakfast is created using a wide choice of locally-sourced produce. Our lingonberries are picked from the forests around us and all our bread, eggs and fish are freshly delivered to us by small local providers.   From Monday to Friday, our traditional Kainuu breakfast is also available for non-residents to purchase.

The Lammasjärvi waterfront boulevard close to the hotel offers the ideal setting for an evening stroll with stunning lakeside views. The lake and beach are just a short walk from the hotel. At Hotel Kainuu, we are surrounded by nature but with convenient access to local services and amenities.

Our reception staff speak Finnish and English


Our hotel is popular with walkers who use it as their base for exploring the countryside around us.  At Hotel Kainuu, you can enjoy a good night’s sleep, put together a picnic lunch at breakfast, spend the day hiking in the stunning Kuhmo forests and return in the evening to enjoy a soak in our traditional Finnish sauna.  We also have canoes available if you would like to explore the lake on the water.

Stay overnight with us and, the following day, join one of our expert local guides for an evening or nighttime wildlife watching experience at our cabin-like hide. With luck, you will spot bears and may even catch sight of wolves and wolverines.

Pajakkakoski rapids, a fly-fisher’s dream, are just a 10-minute walk from our hotel.  We have decorated a number of our rooms with fly fishing enthusiasts in mind. The rooms offer storage for all your equipment, there is a comfortable and well-lit fly tying workshop nearby and we also provide a kit drying room and a sitting room with fishing-inspired decor. The hotel bar is run by a highly experienced and knowledgeable local barman and keen fisherman, who can help you make the most of your stay.
