SuPer holiday apartments

SuPer has acquired holiday apartments in Levi, Ylläs, Ruka, Puumala, Koli, Vierumäki and Nauvo to be used by its members. You can apply for a holiday apartment during the application period twice a year. Outside the application period, you can enter bookings for any weeks that others have cancelled directly in the list of vacancies that is updated weekly.

The holiday apartments are available around the year and members can book them for a week at a time. The apartments are affordable but fully equipped holiday homes which offer a perfect environment for forgetting your work worries. 

The two-room apartment in the Kallio district of Helsinki is rented out for a shorter term. It is a good alternative to a hotel if you need accommodation for one night or a long weekend. The bookings for the peak seasons in the summer will be distributed on the basis of applications.  

Through the Holiday Club, you can apply for time-share weeks in Vierumäki, Katinkulta in Vuokatti, Pyhätunturi, Himos, Saimaa and Airisto in Turku or half-weeks at Tampere Spa and Naantali Spa.
