Wilderness hotel Kirikeskus

Kirikeskus is located in Posio, on the shores of the crystalclear Lake Kiritöjärvi, next to Kirintövaara, offering its guests accommodation, dining, meeting and program services. At your disposal there is also a large private beach sauna with a big fireplace out of stone. There you can relax from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
In summer, you can enjoy in the middle of the peaceful nature eg. fishing and hiking. 


We rent boats and canoes from the hotel. We can arrange excursions without hurry, with only the sky as a limit. In winter, during snow and ice, we arrange eg. snowmobile safaris in the wild landscapes of Lapland and trips to husky and reindeer farms. Snowshoe walking is easy and lets you enjoy the peace of nature and maybe even see the northern lights!



Our rooms offer wonderful views to Lapland's beatiful landscapes.



Lappish dishes are made from the ingredients of local forests and waters; game, fish, berries and mushrooms. From the best ingredients for all kinds of delica-cies.

Meetings and saunas

Here, in the middle of the peaceful nature, you get new ideas and perspectives on things. You can arrange a glorious meeting in the 80-seat auditorium, which overlooks Lake Kirintöjärvi. There are also smaller meeting rooms at your dis-posal, including a beach sauna.

Kiri slopes

The wilderness hotel has a magnificent view to the Kiri slopes, which are located about only 200 meters away. There are three ski slopes, the longest of which is about 1000 meters long. Two of the ski slopes are illuminated. There is a height difference of 110 m.


The professional slope staff ensures that the slopes and the equipment in the ski rental shop are in the best possible condition and thus safe for skiers, both adults and children.


The slopes are open during the ski season in winter 2020 – 2021
