Live the good life in the bosom of mother nature: enjoy outdoor activities and nature and a high-quality lodging experience. At the heart of the Nuuksio National Park, Haltia Lake Lodge is the place to nest up in a nature boutique lodge and enjoy the good life, right next to the Finnish Nature Center Haltia. Take a step back from your busy everyday life and reconnect with nature by the enchanting fjord-like Pitkäjärvi lake – just 30 minutes from bustling Helsinki. In addition to lodging, we provide the perfect outdoor experiences to make your stay both inspiring and invigorating. Everything we do is built on nature conservation, sustainable development, and local sourcing. In Finnish mythology, the Earth Guardian is an elf – haltia – that protects all life. Come and meet your guardian elf!

Nest up

The most important aspect of our rooms is rest. We want you to be fully recharged so you’ll get the most out of what you come to us for – a carefully curated natural experience.

Out in the wilderness by day and in the sauna or maybe by a campfire in the evening – what you’ll want from your room is rest and a good sleep, without too many distractions. Like a bird’s nest.

Digital detox? Up to you. We feel that TV has no place here, but the Forest Lounge provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in sharing experiences of the day and plan your next excursions and activities with a refreshing soft drink, quality wine or local craft beer.

Our accommodation prices include fresh locally sourced breakfast, sauna, and Wi-Fi. Read more

Nature Experiences

Catch, forage and cook your own food, using natural and very, very local ingredients. Everything tastes better the fresher it is.

See, feel and breath in the overwhelming richness and purity of Finland’s national treasures – vast forests and countless lakes, which you can explore by walking, mountain biking, skiing or kayaking.

There’s also a multitude of wonderful experiences right by your nest, if you’re looking to just be or have difficulty moving about. We take great care in ensuring your stay will be unforgettable and deeply restorative – just the way you are. Read more

The summer 2024 activities are now available for booking from June 6th to August 26th. Click the “Book Experiences” button and reserve your adventure in Nuuksio. All of these can also be booked for non-accommodated customers!

Nuuksio meeting

Take a step back from your busy life – just 30 minutes from bustling Helsinki. Discover the true nature of your business and step into the heart of the Nuuksio lake highlands where the resident woodland spirits watch over you.

NOOX, the first proven name for the Nuuksio region, lives on in the name of our hotel’s NOOX meeting room.

Forest Lounge & Bar

Forest Lounge is a space replete with wilderness elegance. Forest Lounge provides an opportunity to immerse yourself over a glass of quality wine or local craft beer while sharing your experiences of the day or planning the next days’ adventures. Snacks are also available. Forest Lounge & Bar is also a shared living room and a place to kick back and chill.

Sustainable travel

Tourism has a huge impact on nature, climate, culture and economy – both globally & locally. It’s often exploitative and does more harm than good, but we can start changing this now.

At Haltia Lake Lodge we take our part very seriously. All of our operations run on 100% wind energy, utilise little to no plastic and benefit a wide range of local operators. We recycle everything, build and renovate using circular economy and aim to be carbon neutral in 2025. Stay with us and have a positive impact.

Best Sustainable Hotel: Europe 2022

The winners of Boutique Hotel Awards 2022 were announced on 8th November 2022. Haltia Lake Lodge was named Best Sustainable Hotel: Europe. The judges applauded Haltia Lake Lodge for its beautiful natural setting and thoughtfully sustainable approach. Once a council dormitory building, the Lodge itself has been transformed into a luxurious sanctuary in the tranquil Finnish forest.

Background on the Awards & Awards process

The Boutique Hotel Awards is the first and only international awards organisation exclusively dedicated to recognising unique excellence among boutique hotels.

The hotels and private villas are tried and tested, giving the judges first-hand experience of what makes them special. Each and every property is visited personally by an experienced hotel judge, who specialises in each category, and where decisions on winners depend on true guest experience at the property.

The winners were selected from over 250 Nominees in over 70 countries. Entrants are nominated each year by a member of the Awards Nomination Committee, comprising 30 leading travel experts, whose business it is to be ‘in-the-know’ concerning the extraordinary boutique hotels. The Awards then coordinate judge evaluation visits with each shortlisted nominee. The judges document all aspects of the guest experience covering elements of dining, design, concept, facilities, location, service and, most importantly, emotional impact. Finally, these evaluations are meticulously studied by the Awards Panel, which decides the Award winners.

World Boutique Hotel Awards

Hotels for Trees

In February 2022, Haltia Lake Lodge became the first property in the Nordics to sign up for Hotels for Trees. This initiative enables our guests to compensate a part of the CO2 impact of their journey and strengthens the sustainable efforts of Haltia Lake Lodge.

The Hotels for Trees Foundation contributes directly to a greener hotel world. A hotel world in which one new tree is planted each time a guest chooses to skip the daily room cleaning. The impact of this green choice can be seen on the Hotels for Trees website the very next day and directly contributes to (re-)forestation projects of partner Trees for All across the globe.
