Kuikka is a former forest workers' residence situated in the municipality of Kuhmo, on the border with Russia. The base camp sits on a headland, surrounded by the Kuikka lake and boreal forest. The building is a traditional rural Finnish log house. The general atmosphere in Kuikka can be compared to that of a large family rather than to that of a hotel.
