Wanha (Old) Raatesalmi is located at a beautiful place by the lake Kuusamojärvi. It is traditional Finnish farm built at the beginning of 19th century. The farm is only 20 minutes drive from Kuusamo airport and 30 minutes drive from Ruka skiing centre yet you feel like you have travelled back on time.
We also have an icelandic horse farm that arranges trail rides from one hour ride to hole day rides. We are small breeder of icelandics so you have good change to see foals at summer time.
If you like to sense more of the atmosphere of the farm you can accommodate our beautiful Villa Raatteenranta. There are beds for 12 people (18 with extra beds). If you are looking a romantic place to stay over a night you can book accommodation from our Sauna lodge wich is only few meters from the lake.
Fall in love with the tölt!
Experience the peace and tranquility of the Kuusamos wilderness on the back of calm and steady icelandic horse. You can be a total beginner in riding or have lots of experience. We always ride in groups with riders of the same level. Our rides take us to the heart of Kuusamo to Nature.
If you are looking for a special adventure this is for you. When the arctic night falls we get on the back of our warm and furry icelandic horses and head toward the dark forest. Only the stars, the moon and snow lights our ride. If we are lucky the auroras will give us their magical light show.
