Dream remote working place in the charm of nature
North Karelia is the dream remote working place. After work you can close your laptop and head out to nature. And not just any nature but to the wild North Karelian nature with spectacular views. Spend your time in a national park, on top of a hill, close to lakes or overlooking a stunning river views. We have something for everyone after a day of work whether you are an eager snowshoer, skier, spa goer, walker or excited about culture events. And great views.  
And you don't have to sit in the whole day. A meeting will get a whole new energy from the top of Ukko-Koli or from the shore of lake Pielinen. After a moment outside you can come back in and enjoy our lovely spas and the warmt of our saunas.
"Sometimes when remote working your insipiration and energy levels can be low. We have plenty of inspiration to offer. In Koli you can reach the top of a hill in less than 15 minutes, at Bomba you can enjoy the warmth of a jacuzzi and at Kimmel you can enjoy the lovely river view", says Tiina Kanninen, Director of Tourism and Sales at North Karelia Cooperative.
"Work can be done in our cozy hotel rooms (WiFi is always included) or in the general spaces of the hotel. In the best case scenario your Teams meetings' backdrop can be the top of Ukko-Koli or lake Pielinen which continues as far as the eye can see. Sometimes it feels good to make your colleagues jealous", Kanninen says humorously.
