Spend an unforgettable country Christmas far from the hustle and bustle of daily life

Christmas at Ylä-Tuuhonen Farm is a true traditional Finnish holiday. Enjoy comfortable accommodation in a cosy chamber, feast on treats at the farm’s Christmas dinner and participate in holiday activities. Feel how the Christmas spirit descends on the farm and fills every nook and cranny of the farm with its atmosphere. Rest, relax and recover – everything is ready for you.

At Ylä-Tuuhonen Farm, you can enjoy a traditional Christmas in the countryside of northern Pirkanmaa. Our Christmas packages include cosy Christmas celebrations from 23 December to Boxing Day, 26 December.

Bake and treat yourself to homemade gingerbread biscuits with the farmer’s daughter and wife. Join the farmer on a quest to find the perfect Christmas tree from the forest and decorate it to boost the holiday atmosphere in Guesthouse Eetula and Saunatupa.

Take a relaxing stroll in the surrounding nature scenery and then relax in the gentle heat of a wood-burning sauna. We invite you to enjoy the farm’s delicious Christmas food and a true country Christmas atmosphere!

At Christmastime, you can stay in one of the chambers of Guesthouse Eetula or in the farm’s old granary, Makasiini. We are happy to help you with any questions you might have – don’t hesitate to contact us!

"Tulimme viettämään rauhallista ja ikimuistettavaa joulua – ja sen totisesti saimme! Lämmin henki leijailee tämän talon kaikissa huoneissa. Sen lähteenä on talon isäntäväki ja Maire-tytär."
