Welcome to

Pinetree lodge

Särkimukka is a very small village by the Lainio River, 150 km North of the Arctic Circle. The village has 20 times more dogs than people. Join us in the middle of the Taiga forests!

Pinetree Lodge is situated beside a beautiful lake, Saarijarvi, in the middle of a rich forest. It has a reception desk, dining room, bar and sauna. Every afternoon we heat up the sauna. After activities you can relax, warm up, and enjoy the beautiful view. Before or after dinner, join us in the Brown Bear Bar for a locally brewed beer or a cloudberry sour. In our restaurant, join us for a delicious meal made from locally sourced food from Lapland. We offer the amenities of a large hotel with the cozy feeling of staying with a friend.
