Our Story

Magical Pond is a unique and atmospheric igloo village which has been built on owner Johanna’s childhood neck of woods. Her family has owned this area since 1885. The idea for the igloo village came about one magical evening when the sky was lit up by the Northern Lights. Witnessing the Aurora Borealis can be truly empowering, and Johanna, together with her family, wanted to give others this same opportunity to experience these magical lights in thoroughly exclusive setting.

Quite often our everyday life is stressful and busy, so it is important to remember to look after not only our physical wellbeing but also our emotional wellbeing. Visiting Magical Pond and the surrounding nature will give you a great opportunity to press that ‘Pause’ button and take time for yourself. We visit Kuusamo several times a year in order to recharge and enjoy the nature’s silence. We want to welcome you to Magical Pond; come and enjoy this stunning and healing environment with us!

You might also want to visit Lammintupa Winter Village which is run by Johanna’s sister. Lammintupa is across the pond from us and gives you a great opportunity to see the huskies and reindeers. But if you are after some adrenaline rush, Lammintupa offers ice-karting. They also have a café and a restaurant on site.

Warm Welcome to All Our Guests - Johanna, Pauli & Bianca
