Nature Point Paljakka

Main building Nature Point Paljakka


Our Nature Point Paljakka is situated about 60 km north of Kajaani in the arctic lakeland of Finland. Our region Kainuu is just before the gates of Lapland. Kainuu is famous of it’s hills, lakes and endless forests which makes it one of the loneliest but for this the richest nature areas in Finland where only few visitors come to. The perfect place to enjoy nature and quietness!

Nature Point is situated next to the strict nature reserve Paljakka, Finlands oldest spruce forest. Paljakka is also the most snowiest place of Finland.


Nature Point was founded by Kaisa and Sigi Schwarz in 1997. Now it’s already run by the next generation, Daniel, Inga, Janika and Pekko. Kaisa is also still playing an active role.


The five cozy double bedrooms (some of them have a gallery with an extra sleeping space) are all arranged with much love and each of them features a different wood from the Finnish forest e.g. birch, spruce, pine and Honka (very old pinewood). Every room has its own bathroom with a shower and a toilet.

Most meals take place in our comfortable dining area which also has a nice fire place where you can warm up after your winter adventures outside. All meals are cooked fresh by our cook so if you are vegetarian or have any allergies please just let us know before your arrival.

The sauna that is mandatory in every Finnish house is located in a little house in our garden at Nature Point where you also find a shower and another cozy fireplace area.

Sauna at the lake

Besides our tours that you can book during your stay at Nature Point there are lots of other activities for you to enjoy in each season. In winter we have snow shoes, kick sleds, forest ski and cross-country skis available for you. The cross-county tracks starts right next to the property.

During summer you can use our bikes to explore the area or ride to the lake (which is a 3 km ride from the main house). There is also located our lake sauna with a bathing jetty.

There also is a little room in the house where you can exercise on the wall bars and climbing wall or play a fun game of table tennis.
