Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The Puukarin Pysäkki restaurant and guesthouse offers accommodation, coffee and dinner, as well as programme services. The customers are usually tourists, half of them foreigners. The objective of the project was to build a multi-purpose building out of girders in order to increase the training and accommodation spaces for small groups and to improve the supply of the company´s services to the increasing customer flows from the Republic of Karelia. The most important sales channels of the company are Lomarengas, 4H, the Travel Marketing of North Karelia and LomaNurmes. Puukarin Pysäkki is also involved in the “Syötä vierasta sanoilla, kunnes keitto kerkiävi” –Interreg II Karelia project, which was going to be used to enlarge the connections of the company and the marketing of their services to Russian customers and travel agencies.
