Idyllic accommodation, traditional pastries, delicious food, and old mythical stories await at the authentic Viena village of Rimminkylä. Relaxing here might immerse you in the mythical tales of Kalevala, passed down from generation to generation. In the gentle heat of the smoke sauna, you might notice time standing still.

The lodge sits in the authentic Viena region, where nature embraces you. Rest in the lodge and listen to some of the many stories that hold the village’s history. Or perhaps, open a book to discover intriguing writings related to this place.

Famous artists once stopped here to enjoy and unwind. Travelers at the lodge experience the ambiance that artists felt, dating back to the 1800s. Akseli Gallen-Kallela, during his honeymoon, found the image of Väinämöinen for his Aino triptych from the old homestead, Rimmin Uljaskan.

At Viena Portti Uljaskan Pirtti, there’s also a selection of carefully chosen traditional gifts and souvenirs for sale.
