Vääntäjän tila – Farm Accommodation
The farm Vääntäjän tila hires well-equipped lakeside cottages for year-round use. The farm is located by the Väliväylä paddling route, and we also offer canoe hire and transport for the canoes, as well as guided excursions for groups. Other activities and catering can be included in the excursions.
Vääntäjän tila is located 25 km east of Kouvola towards Lappeenranta. We are based in the active little village of Tirva, which offers a large variety of activities for active travellers during the summer months. Dancing, theatre and a market offer fun things to do and let visitors to the cottages learn about the way of life in the countryside.
Our lakeside cottages and canoe services can be found along Väliväylä, a 113 km long path which runs through a network of lakes and rivers. Our cottages are located on the shores of lake Immanen. In addition to paddling these waters are also well suited for fishing. Close to the cottages you can catch pike and small fish. The Kyykoski lure fishing area, where you can catch trout and grayling, is only a 20 minute drive from the cottages. From us you can hire a separate fishing boat with motor to allow you to go trolling or to drive to the Kyykoski fishing area. We also sell fishing permits.
We can organise meetings and team building days with tasty country fare and a suitable nature excursion. Group sizes of 10–20 people are the most suitable, but with the help of our partners we can also cater to larger groups. The owner Matti is a trained paddling instructor, so even first timers can enjoy a paddling trip under his guidance. During our excursions we will make coffee over an open fire while listening to the rumblings of the rapids, and the meals out in nature or in the Loimutupa cottage close to the farm are tailored to suit the groups.
