We are Aini and Pekka Ojala, the proud entrepreneurs of B&B Kotitie. When our children moved away, we wanted to fill the void by opening up our home to travellers. We offer our expertise in providing you with our health beneficial services and a glimpse into the life of a regular Finnish family. We have decades of experience in the field of well-being and natural products and degrees in e.g. physiotherapy and culinary arts. We speak Finnish, Swedish, English and German.

B&B Kotitie offers you homely accommodation for up to six people in a traditional Finnish wooden house, which is surrounded by parks and located within walking distance of the Rovaniemi city centre. We also offer many nature related services in our home and out in the Laplandic nature. At B&B Kotitie you can enjoy our delicious, home-cooked breakfast or dinner. We always use the best local produce as well as ingredients foraged from the pure, Finnish nature.

Sauna is the heart of every Finnish home and the secret to Finnish well-being. That is why we offer sauna-related services at B&B Kotitie including an herbal sauna or massage-therapy using self-made herbal oils. We also offer walking or snowshoe excursions and herb, berry or mushroom picking tripsin the forests of Rovaniemi and day trips into our cabin by the lake, where you can experience the traditional wood stove sauna surrounded by un-touched nature. Our services always include meals and drinks made from natural ingredients such as wild herbs, berries, mushrooms, local fish and reindeer meat. You’ll hear stories about the nature and the culture of Lapland.
