Loma Rinteelä holiday cottage investment
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

As part of the project, another holiday house will be built in the Sotkamo community to increase the capacity of the rural tourism company. The project contributes to the development of rural tourism in Sotkamo and the creation of new opportunities in the countryside. Loma Rinteelä is a rural tourism company founded in 1981, located about 25 km from Sotkamo. Loma Rinteelä offers accommodation in modern log cabins by the water. Investments in the company were made mainly at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s. Recently, the number of Russian tourists has increased in the company. The construction of the holiday home will be carried out through the mediation of Vuokatti Matkailukeskus Oy (Vuokatti Travel Center). The company plans to participate in joint marketing projects in the regions of Russia. In addition, holiday homes are sold to Russian buyers through travel agencies Lomarenka and Kainuun Markkinointi Oy. The company took part in the educational project "Development of the Eastern Trade Network", and also participated in the project of the previous Interreg Program for the development of software services for Russian tourists.
