Kivitippu – the hotel by the meteorite lake shore
Hotel Kivitippu lies right by the shore of lake Lappajärvi, embraced by breathtaking lake landscapes. The exciting origin of Lappajärvi makes Kivitippu’s location unique. The lake came into being 73 million years ago, when a meteorite collided with Earth, forming a large crater. The meteorite was enormous, approximately 350 meters in diameter, and it dived through Earth’s atmosphere with cosmic speed. The impact caused a huge crater, giving rise to two unique types of rock, kärnäite and suevite, in the process. These types of rock can only be found in the vicinity of Lappajärvi.
Time has refined the region into a beautiful Finnish lake landscape with islets. There is plenty of fish in the lake and its treasures have their given place on the hotels menu. The lake landscape and the versatile services of Hotel Kivitippu offer new experiences and many opportunities to spend leisure time, pursue hobbies, attend meetings and treat oneself to luxury in winter and summer both.
Come and see for yourself, the meteorite lake leaves no one untouched!
