Kota – the Goahti

Cosy relaxation around a fireplace

22,5 m² | max. 2 persons

In the Kota room, you can enjoy a cosy atmosphere created by the room’s electric fireplace. The fireplace divides the flat-floor room into a sleeping niche and a kitchen/living area, so you can admire the fireplace while either relaxing in bed or enjoying your morning coffee in an armchair. The wealth of wooden surfaces and textiles creates pleasant acoustics and a warm atmosphere in the room.

What does “kota” mean?

The “Kota” or goahti is similar to its better-known cousin, the teepee. It is a round-bottomed, cone-shaped dwelling, covered with fabric, skins, or peat moss. In Finland, kota is strongly associated with the Sami culture, because Sami people have used such huts as temporary dwellings longer than the Finns. But the ancient Finns dwelled in kota tents as well before log houses becoming more common. People survived the harsh winter in the warmth of the fireplace in the middle of the kota, and smoke swirled out through the hole at the top.

Nowadays, the Finns build kotas from wood as resting places next to hiking trails or barbeque huts in their gardens. The kota provides more shelter than a lean-to, and thanks to its cosy round shape, everyone inside gets their share of the warmth from the fireplace.
