Welcome to Mummola!

Our Mummola is in a small village in Lapland, Northern Finland above the Arctic Circle. We are four generations living together in three old log houses at a farm with cows. We are surrounded by clean air, forest and wilderness. We have a river running through our village and beautiful fells nearby. In the summer the sun doesn't go down for several weeks and in the winter we have snow for 7 months. The seasons keep changing rapidly with every season having its special character.

We explore the nature surrounding us, want to learn skills from the older generations and enjoy that our son is able to grow so close to his grandparents and great-grandmother.

Things we LIKE!

Local events and culture
Mosquitoes !!! (our son likes)
Berry picking
Chopping wood for sauna
Carpet weaving
Fresh outdoors with packed lunch
Home cookings
Snow fun and Northern Lights
