Come to relax and spend time in Yli-Ii, in a quiet, beautiful and historical place, where the River Iijoki plays its ancient melodies while flowing gently by. Have a rest in the bosom of nature, wander on Stone Age gold lands, enjoy the atmosphere and good food. Arrange a meeting or an unforgettable family celebration; spend time with people important for you. Take a sauna bath to whisk away haste and anger; have a quiet sit-down in the evening, while sausages are getting ready, and let peace come over you. After a good rest, wake up to the humming sound of tall pine trees.

Story of KierikinHovi

As Aino Kurtti, the present hostess of Hotel KierikinHovi, saw the hotel for sale and its surroundings for the first time, she could only wonder why such a place had been left abandoned. Silence and peace were prevailing everywhere; the dignified-looking but abandoned log hotel built in 2005 was standing in the bosom of beautiful nature. Aino, who enjoys peace and beauty of nature as well as interior design, fell in love with the place. Together with her family, she decided to start enthusiastic and determined working to bring the hotel back to life. Anne Åqvist, a restaurant and hotel worker, contributes in an important way to the work. Both Aino and the whole team of KierikinHovi consider the well-being of customers to be of great importance. They hope you could come to relax, feel comfortable and spend time in quiet surroundings near nature.
