Eräkeskus - where dreams come true!

The small lodge with great service and friendly atmosphere

The Eräkeskus Wilderness Lodge & Huskyfarm is located in the municipality Nurmijärvi, about 35 kilometers northeast of Lieksa, 55 km east of Nurmes and only 15 km from the Russian border crossing Kivivaara. The lodge was built in 1986 and is now under Swiss management. It serves as an ideal starting point for numerous summer and winter activities. The lodge offers the best conditions for guests who are looking for the peace and solitude of the North Karelian nature.

Take a break from everyday life ...

Enjoy the sun at our sandy beach during summer, savour the quitness  on the veranda overlooking the lake, experience the harmony between heaven and water while drifting on a raft. 

Take a lonely tour with snowshoes on the lake during winter or just hike into the endless white surroundings.

Because nature offers us so much recreation here and the silence can be experienced consciously!
