History

Almost 50 years of silence in Vuotson Maja Sodankylä has sparked a new life in skilled hands. 
Eeva-Liisa and Jouko Vainioranta bought the buildings from the Gold Museum Foundation in 2013 and have opened it as a home-made B & B in early 2015. Vuotson maja is a representative example of the reconstruction architecture and development police. It was built by the state, ie the building government, and the Finnish Tourism Federation was run by the Finnish Tourist Board. The Vuotso Lodge has a long and colorful history. During the 1910s, the first fairway was established in the house of Petsamo in the Isaac-Hetta house east of the road to the current canal shore. Near the Kievar was a peat bog, and in many of those time travel expeditions are presented "the last Lappish non-residents". Subsequently, the rights of the media were at least Jurvakainen's house. In its present position, the state built a tourist period in the 1920s and also a customs station. The areas of Inari, Utsjoki, Enontekiö and Petsamo were free from sales tax, ie Norway was allowed to import and export goods free of duty within municipalities. Traffic was monitored in Vuotsa from 1923 to 1937, after which duty was transferred to the municipality's northern boundary to Laanila. The present canyon was erected in the years of rebuilding and opened in 1949. In the state-built house, besides the tourist association's guesthouse, there was a post office and police with its pipes. Majan was closed to tourists in 1966. During the course of his activity, the mausoleum was operated by artist Andreas Alariesto, who lived there with his wife Riga. According to the story, Andreas molded metal towers at the nearby inns of the inn, and I came up with the holes of the hunters behind the sleepless hunters. Sylvia Petronella started her famous Lemmenjoki excursions by borrowing anorak from the hut, ski helmets and dances in August 1949. The shingles moved from Vuotsoo to Orivesi to buy buildings from the Gold Museum Foundation, which used it for a decade mainly as a staffing facility. The perfect and traditio-like renovation is inspired by the wilderness tastes of the village and the natural peace that they loved tens of years ago. The Sami village of Votsos was born in the late 19th century when Norwegian settlers, Enontekiö and Utsjoki reindeer soldiers sought new residential areas. For the Vuotson channel joining the current reservoirs, the "Sompiolaiset Muotkataival" had been in use for centuries, and the boats were drawn from Riestojoki to Tankajoki and Kitinen and to the watercourse. Close proximity is the local Sámi handicraft and culture store and a short walk to the Siep Village Shop. At the same time, during the Continuation War, 1942-44 German army buildings were housed, including the Rasthaus inn. During the war, there were thousands of German soldiers in the village, airport, laundry, clothes and prison camps with traces on the ground.
