– the story of the house is kept safe in our recipe book
Created more than one hundred years ago, Krapi provided the surroundings for recently urbanized Finnish persons to have breathing moments and all inclusive awe-filled experiences. Krapi maintained the lands and raised livestock, made food from their own farm’s ingredients and took good care of the guests arriving to the estate.
Years and decades have passed, but nothing has changed. Krapi’s essence is still the same. It lives on in the encounters shared by people, entwined between the Finnish banquet table and the stories told around it. Krapi’s everyday life is genuine, Finnish, caring and communal. Our story
Accommodations peaceful, cosy and spacious lodging in the Krapi and Onnela regions – Krapi is domestic travelling at its best.
Hotel Krapi’s rooms are all located within the Krapi and Onnela region, only a 15 minute drive away from Helsinki-Vantaa airport. There are 61 hotel rooms, two log cabins in Onnela and during the summertime, one traditional granary in Krapi’s courtyard. An abundant buffet breakfast is always included in the price.
The story of Krapihovi’s kitchen is built upon the seasonal changes and pure Finnish ingredients from the earth, sea and forest. In the courtyard we have our own smokehouse, meat carving house and bakery. In Krapihovi, we serve a genuine, Finnish, hand-made setting. A delicious story of Finland.
