Hotel Mesikämmen: Great place in Ähtäri
Very nice hotel.
Hotel Mesikämmen is a nice experience for the whole family. It was designed by architect brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen (designers of Temppeliaukio Church, Helsinki). It is a very particular building where part of it is underground and a stone infrastructure, although all the rooms have views to the outdoors and especially towards the lake.
The hotel has 101 rooms, all of them are smoke-free, spacious, and some of them have been recently renovated.
The hotel offers spa and conference rooms for meeting and events. Guests can enjoy many facilities such as swimming pools (for adults and for kinds), Jacuzzis, saunas, gymnasium, spa, beauty treatments and play room for children. Here is possible to rest from the busy life in a very peaceful environment and enjoy tasty meals at the cafeteria or at the “a la carte” restaurant. Here also take place many events with music and dance every night.
There are several activities near the hotel; the The Ähtäri Wildlife Zoo is only 150 meters away. There are some beautiful hiking trails around the area and next to the lake, as well as a family golf course; guests can also play tennis, badminton, squash, volleyball and basketball in the nearby Ähtäri Hall. During winter, snowmobile renting is available to practicing cross country skiing.
