  • This forest ryokan in Rovaniemi is designed to make children's hearts feel. There are wooden blocks, sculptures, and tractors used to cut and transport wood, and the composition is not just about watching, but actually touching and playing. A must-visit museum in Rovaniemi, along with Aactikum, it's cheaper than buying a ticket containing Athikum.

  • Visited with the children in August Rovaniemi, and of course could not pass by the center of Pilke. You can spend there all day, and you can see the employees in the coworking area, discussing the workflow over a cup of coffee. Do not pass by objects, because everyone is worthy of attention and will tell about something new about the forest. You can just lie on soft pillows, listening to music and admiring the views of the forest, you can control the simulator forest equipment or shoot. Everyone will find something to their liking.

  • Teaches you well about wood, its growth and forests with fun games and tests. Nice and helpful staff. Good place for family or school trips. There's a big hall down where everything is. Many stairs but I think there's wheelchair access to it too, not sure. Oh and scouts get in free if wearing the scout scarf!
  • Very interesting place, and student tickets were only 5 euros a piece! All kinds of interesting stuff about forests and how we are making our future greener.
