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 cosy accommodation, feast on the treats prepared for the farm’s Christmas dinner, and participate in holiday activities. Feel how the Christmas spirit descends on the farm, filling every nook and cranny 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 23rd of December to Boxing Day, 26th of December.

Treat yourself to homemade gingerbread biscuits – if you like, you can bake them yourself with the help of Irma and Maire. Join Esko on a quest to find the perfect Christmas tree from our forest, then decorate it to achieve the perfect holiday atmosphere in the Eetula Guesthouse and the Saunatupa.

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

At Christmas, you can stay in one of the rooms in the Eetula Guesthouse or in the farm’s old granary, Makasiini. We’ll be happy to help you with any questions – 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."
