Mummola; 1) Granny's place 2) Grandma's place 3) Grandparents place 4) Grandparents home
Mummola is word for a place where grandparents live. This is also our home where we live together with four generations.
We would like our guests to experience Mummola and Lapland like they were our friends visiting us. We are open all year round and welcome the guests with the best that every season has to offer combined with local event, our family activities and festive traditions.
All this started as project (and a journey) towards rediscovering our roots. We first thought about staying for one year to see where it will lead us. Bubbling underneath was possible career change inspired by our everyday life here in Mummola.
As we decided to stay "for good" in beginning of August 2015 I started as an entrepreneur leading Mummola Travels towards hoped success! You are more than welcome to meet us!
At the moment I'm excited to live in Lapland with four generations of my husbands family. I'm also enjoying being a mom of four year old boy, Olavi, and I'm happy he got this big family around him. I'm eager to explore the amazing nature in Lapland, learn carpet weaving with Mummi, make bread cheese and flat bread with Ämmi and all the other things I'm able to experience (or Learn). I'm writing notes and taking photos, so I can share the moments with you.
Moving back to Lapland after living more than 10 years in Helsinki was a big change in our lives. My family has run the farm for many generations and we wanted to explore if we can continue it in our style. Our one year experiment is already running its third year without end insight.
I have started to work as a software developer for Höyry, a company in Rovaniemi. It is wonderful to be able to work from home and make your own timetables.
I really enjoy mountain biking and I am searching for new routes in the forests nearby. My favourite tracks are the ones made by reindeers.
