The rustic Jäkkälä Hunting Cabin will transport you back to a simpler time; the main cabin was built by Kenth Fjellborg’s grandfather back in the days when haymaking on the Jäkkälä bogs was crucial for the survival of both man and livestock. On the way to Jäkkälä we travel along the legendary Tobacco Trail, which in the 17th century was a trade route connecting Lapland with Russia. The Jäkkälä camp is nestled peacefully among the trees and offers a warm and cosy resting place after a full day spent on the trail.
A RUSTIC HIDEAWAY IN THE WOODS
The rustic Jäkkälä Hunting Cabin consist of three log cabins in a peaceful forest setting by a lake. The cabins are decorated in the style of a traditional hunting and fishing camp and offers a genuine wilderness experience. Evenings are spent in the main cabin, enjoying great candle-light dinners while listening to the crackle of the wood stove.
The camp offers a mix of bunkbeds and double beds and the atmosphere is warm and cosy, with wood burners in all cabins. In addition, there is also electricity from a generator. Jäkkälä is a dry cabin facility with no running water – water is fetched from the well in the yard. A drytoilet is available outside.
In true Lapland style there is of course a traditional sauna on the premises where you can relax and refresh before dinner.
Jäkkälä Hunting Cabin is situated in roadless land but offers mobile/cell phone coverage.
