Kymppi features comfort and rustic grey log elegance in the style of Rukan Salonki and is an experience of local tastes and authentic Lappish atmosphere, where cooking and gathering around a campfire in a kota-hut were essential parts of the meal enjoyed together.


An evening spent around the campfire, in good company and with good food – what more can you ask for? Our food philosophy is strongly rooted in northern nature, we prefer seasonality and local produce. Wild food, flavours of the pure nature, are served with the greatest passion and love for their origin.

Wilderness Restaurant Kymppi is mainly available on request for private groups and parties.

Wild Food Fondue Night

Fondue is the classic and well known winter dish that gathers friends and family around a table to enjoy some food, good laughs and chats. Here in Kymppi fondue is served the traditional way but with local flavours.

The starter soup is composed of cheeses from Kuusamon Juusto, the northernmost cheesery in Finland. Fondue requires high-quality meat, which can be eaten medium or even medium minus, so reindeer and elk meat are perfect for fondue. The bouillon is house-made and has a roasted aroma to it. Fresh and pickled vegetables, as it should be and a fresh yoghurt sauce and lingonberry mayonnaise. The symphony of flavours is finished off with cloudberry served in Crème Brûlée.

Advance bookings are required!

Feast of Glow Fried Salmon

Glow fried salmon is one of the most popular and most traditional dishes in northern Finland. The salmon filets are slowly glow fried by the fire, only a pinch of salt is added and a few times during the frying the filets are brushed with melted butter. The trick of the trade is to catch the right moment to take the salmon from the fire, the right moment is when the salmon is perfect – moist and with the lightest crust.

Capacity: 50 seats (dinner setting)
