THE HOSTESS

It is my passion to bring my guests closer to the unique and magical winter landscape which captivated me in 2014. To bring you closer to my passion I would like to briefly introduce myself to you.

I am a family person with a great sense for interior design and creativity. My special gift in life is to pamper people and to be there for them. Inspired by my guests, helpers from all over the world and my love for cooking and baking I create new menus and little treats for you everyday.

I was always very fond of travelling however; my affection from moving around has developed into a different passion once I started my B&B. There is something wonderful about being able to offer my guests a comfortable place to stay and help them explore and discover the surrounding areas. I got my wish of one day owning a little café two times over when I opened up the B&B. It is my wish to be able to offer my guests a place of relaxation, enjoyment and well-being!

Sincerely, Kerstin








THE LOCATION

Our B & B is located in the far north, 170 km north of the polar circle, near the vibrant small town of Levi in Finnish Lapland.

Our location offers you the opportunity to experience solitude and the polar lights far away from the everyday hectic without having to completely forego a shopping trip or a new culinary experience.

 

THE HISTORY OF JOKIMAJA

It all came about when in the winter of 2014 my son and his friend Cosima travelled through Scandinavia, By summer 2015 Cosima and I created the Jokimaja. We realized our dream of a B&B and a Café within only three months.

During a short journey in summer 2015 to Finnish Lapland we discovered, due to a fortunate coincidence this beautiful old ferry house. Only 2 months later, in November 2015, our Jokimaja team consisting of Cosima, Malte and myself with two cars and a trailer started off in Finnish Lapland. After 3500 km we arrived at our farm. There was much to do, we had to reconstruct and renovate our cozy little Butik-Café. It was all worth it as we welcomed our first guests in December 2015.

As we had a wonderful and successful first season it was not a difficult decision to open up Jokimaja for a second season. I am running it now without Cosima but have always been supported by various, fantastic helpers from all over the world throughout to whom I would like to express my special thanks.

We have now started to take the first bookings for our third season and would be delighted to welcome you to the winter season 2017/2018.

I look forward to seeing you all soon
Kerstin

FEEDBACKS FROM OUR GUESTS

  • "Thank you for having created this lovely place! This is really special special and the stay was a new Lapland experience. Thank you!"
    February 2017, Finland

  • "We stayed in Jokimaja for 2 beautiful nights to celebrate a special 30 birthday. Kerstin and her lovely team were so welcoming from the moment we arrived with their homemade food and warm atmosphere. Our cozy room was so comfortable and we had the best nights sleep in a long time. The attention to detail in the decor oft he B&B was just beautiful and looked like a page from a stay book. Thank you for the beautiful stay, we will never forget!"
    January 2017, Great Britain

  • "We spent our last days of 2016 and the first day of 2017 and there was never a better choice in my life. Beautiful snowing view, delicious food, splendid aurora and the joy we had with the whole family. I always thought that drinking champagne, watching aurora and fireworks to celebrate New Year only happens in day dreams. However it happened and it became the best and unforgettable moment. I will keep this memory forever."

  • "A very warm welcome from Cosima and Kerstin who made special efforts to include me in conversations and the social scene at Jokimaja. A good range of outdoor activities nearby, amazing food and a good range of rooms and facilities available. It was a very friendly place to stay, there was a relaxed atmosphere, good company with guests and the Jokimaja team. I am already looking forward to my next stay!"

  • "Jokimaja is an awesome place to stay to enjoy Lapland. Cosima and Kerstin make your Life so easier and with relax.. You feel really at home.. They cook for you orignal and delicious receipes with so much love that' s impossible that you don't like it. All the rooms are really cosy and clean. You have also the possibility to do the finnish Sauna.
    Cosima is really available to help you to organise your time there and answer really quick to e-mails. You just say what do you want to do and everything has been organise magically.... Thanks a lot to all Jokimaja's team, you are so Nice and friendly people!... Das was Supergeil!!!!!"

  • "Okay, first of all the decorations are fabulous. It's got every bit of cabin feel and warmth you would expect. They did such a marvelous job with this place. It's also great to be next to their cafe, because the nights were long, so caffeine was a big help! Cosima went the extra mile to try and make sure your stay in Lapland was as fun and unique as possible. They have many activities available so you don't always have to wake up and go to Levi to try and find fun.
    There's plenty at the bnb to be had! The wood fired sauna was great, too. It's just a few doors and you can take a snow bath before retreating into the hot Sauna. They also have an electric one in the bnb, so technically you don't have to go outside if you don't want to. (But you should!) I can't wait until I am back up there, it's a great area and a cozy bed at night. They also make very, very good meals there. breakfast and dinner were always delicious. Definitely was a fun place to spend a few days if you can!"

  • "This place is great! They are very welcoming as hosts. Cosima is great and very timely with communication. The house is very crazy and feels like home and the breakfast was absolutely delicious, tasty coffee too. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we rearranged our trip so we could stay a couple more nights. Highly highly recommended. Five stars on everything."
