Wilderness cabin in Ranua


LohiniittyThis new log cabin (2009) is on the bank of the famous Salmon River, Simojoki. In the surrounding areas, there are large areas of State owned hunting grounds and very good cloudberry swamps. 3,5 km of the river in front of the cabin are cabin owner’s fishing right waters. One fishing permit is included in the cabin rent. The cabin has a living room, kitchenette and a loft. An electrically heated sauna and shower is in the same building. The cabin has electricity and running water. Swimming is excellent for experienced swimmers, for kids a shallow beach at other side of the river.

The Simojoki is 180 km long river that runs from Lake Simojärvi, Ranua,  through Simo to the Baltic Sea. There are 101 rapids in the river, of which 51 are in  Ranua area. The river is great for shore fly-fishing: Salmon, Trout, Greyling and Whitefish. Other fish that can be caught are pike, perch, bream etc. However, fishing is prohibited weekly for one day from Sunday 6 p.m. to Monday 6 p.m. Peaceful wilderness landscape can be found upstream, whereas towards the downstream, the landscape is more agricultural. For paddlers and  rafters the level of difficulty of the rapids can be found in the infomap.
