Osmankajarvie – Finland

Osmankajarvie, Finland

Osmankajarvie was where Sinnika & Pertti have their mokki, summer cottage. Next to the lake and set amongst the forest their summer holiday home consisted of four buildings. The main holiday home, a dormitory, a “Lapland Teepee” smokehouse for the fish and a sauna. There was no electricity lines or running water. Electricity was supplied by their solar power and the fresh water came from a nearby spring, which had the best water I have tasted. This was one of the most tranquil places we have stayed; wandering through the forest picking fresh berries, venturing out on the lake to catch fresh fish, the obligatory pre-dinner sauna & quick dip in the lake and lazing on the lake shore reading a good book. Our meals consisted of fresh local foods using the berries, smoked and fried fresh fish with local vegetables. Life doesn’t get much better.
