Homely and comfortable
country holidays in Ähtäri

We are Auni and Altti Syrjänen, owners of Valkeisen Loma Farm and we welcome you to stay at our farm. We are open year-round and offer comfortable accommodation in a newly built country hotel or in rustic, yet cosy apartments and cottages.

Our farm is situated in Ähtäri, tucked away in a secluded spot and it is the perfect location for a relaxing and peaceful farm holiday. You may wish to enjoy some treks and walks and even be tempted to do some foraging in the nearby woods.

The great outdoors surrounds us, and it is easy to have plenty of fun trying outdoor activities such as cycling, rowing or swimming in the lake. Our rowing boat and kayak are available for our guests for free. We also have bicycles for hire.

We are ideally placed for visits to Ähtäri Zoo with its Snow Panda House, Ähtäri golf course and other attractions. Ähtäri Zoo with its Nordic animals and giant pandas is a mere 10 minutes’ drive away.

Whether you are looking for B&B or self-catering accommodation for individuals, couples, families or small groups, Valkeisen Loma is a great choice. We offer bed and breakfast accommodation during summer months, but at all the other times, breakfast is available on request.

At Valkeisen Loma you can enjoy the traditional way of Finnish farm life. The farmyard is surrounded by forest on all sides, while Lake Valkeinen is just a stone’s throw away. Along the lakeside shore you will find a sauna and a beach for swimming. Lake Valkeinen is a clear-water lake and perfect for fishing – both summer and wintertime!

In the farmyard, you may come across our resident dogs, cats, bunnies, sheep, horse, pony and of course – reindeer!

When you visit our reindeer park, you’ll feel like you’re in Lapland. You can feed our reindeer with lichen or you may wish to join the reindeer walk through neighbouring woodlands.

The story of the farm

The first settlers arrived on the farm in the late 19th century.

The farm’s most famous resident, Wenti Valkeinen, was born in 1890. As a young man, he studied farming at Orisberg Manor Agricultural School and after graduating, he returned home and took over the family farm.

Wenti was very active in local organisations. He was involved in many local and regional societies such as the National Guard, and was given many positions of trust. For example, he was the chairman of the Ähtäri Municipal Council as well as the local co-op’s bank manager.

In the 1930s, Valkeala farm entered its heyday. At that time, buildings were upgraded, expanded and the large brick barn was built.
