Wanha Pappila apartment hotel is located by the Bay of Bothnia, in Simo, which is the southernmost county of Lapland. We offer the unique combination of natural surroundings and traditions with fully equipped high quality accommodation facilities.

The apartment hotel accommodation consists of 10 high class cabins. The cabins are located by the sea and every cabin has a marvelous direct sea view. The cabins present old fishing tradition. The salmon fishing has been practiced in Simo since 17th century and our new cabins are designed to look like traditional storehouse of fishermen. The design was made together with National board of antiquities and historical monuments.

The Cabins are built next to a historical building- the old vicarage. The Vicarage is more than 100 years old. The vicarage was built for the first vicar of Simo, Mr. J.A. Keckmann. The vicarage was finalised in 1902. Simo is famous for beautiful Simojoki River, one of few free flowing rivers. Simojoki River has naturally breeding salmon population and has become one of the most popular destinations for Finnish sport fishing enthusiasts. Simo area offers many kinds of nature experiences. Besides the beautiful Simojoki River, Simo is also famous for vast wilderness, swampland and untouched countryside.
