The roots of Kontio

Kontio has its roots deep in northern forests, close to the Arctic circle, in the coniferous zone where wondrous pines, hundreds of thousands of lakes, harsh and beautiful landscapes, hot summers and arctically cold winters exist in a balanced symbiosis. In these conditions wood acquires properties which are ideally suited for log construction. Far up in the north, at the top of the world, wood construction has a tradition spanning thousands of years. Even today traditional construction skills and naturally warm wood continue to provide the foundation for Kontio.

The name of Kontio is also rooted in the forest. Kontio is one of the aliases used for "bear", The King of Forest, in Finnish folklore.
