Accommodation in Jämsä rural hotel near Himos activities
Good food, drinks, fire and cosy atmosphere are the basic elements of happiness. Finnish restaurant Patapirtti offers all of this for You and your friends. We use local and Finnish raw materials: pike perch from lake Päijänne, lamb fillet from local Seppälä farm, mushrooms from nearby forests and organically produced berries from our own farm. From these good ingredients we make excellent Finnish food! You can taste berry wines from our own farm, Finnish artisan beers and other interesting alcoholic beverages.
Built in 1842, Pirtti represents traditional Finnish log construction. The large open fireplace creates an atmosphere – the crackling of fire, the smell of smoke and the play of flames are part of the experience. From the windows of Patapirtti, veranda and from the terrace you can admire the play of light on the waves of lake Patalahti and the slopes of Himos Ski Center. Come and enjoy yourself. We want to pamper you!

The wines taste the strong aromas of the berries grown in the northern sun
Since 1995, Finnish berry producers have been allowed to produce wines made from Finnish berries and herbs. The Uusi-Yijälä organic farm joined the ranks of wine producers in 2005. We make wines from blackcurrant, greencurrant, chokeberry and apple. The varieties range from dry table wine to sweet dessert wine. The Nordic sun ripens the berries growing on the southern slopes and gives them a strong aroma. Berry pickers enjoy magnificent views of lake Patalahti and Himos ski resort. The berry wines taste different, but are definitely worth tasting!
