Do you dream of having a place in the nature all to yourself? In RiipiBo you have the chance to stay in a newly built four-bed cottage overlooking the lake, mountains and forest.

It offers simple and convenient accommodation without traffic, electricity or running water. Solar panels provide lighting to the cottage which is equipped with a wooden stove, gas stove and gas refrigerator and a Pacto toilet. The cottage host will deliver fresh water to the cottage. You can enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch and you also have access to a wood fired sauna with changing rooms. Wood and towels are provided for. On the terrace of the sauna you even have access to a barbecue for those lovely evenings when the midnight sun is shining.

Hire a rail trolley and experience the nature and surroundings by the disused Haparandabanan. If you want fresh fish for your barbecue you can always hire a boat and get useful tips. The area around the cottage is perfect for picking berries. If you wish, there is a possibility to get your dinner delivered straight to your cottage. The cottage host will take care of the cleaning at departure.
