New Year in Vuokatti

New Year in Vuokatti

Vuokatti is both rich in snow and in sports activities, both outdoors and indoors. Holiday season activity break in Vuokatti includes a husky safari and a snowmobiling tour as well as a great sauna experience on Christmas Eve/New Year's Eve.

Vuokatti  is a sport resort known for the excellent cross-country ski tracks. You can find winter in their ski and snowboard tunnels all year round. Vuokatti is located in north-eastern Finland, which gets their first natural snow typically in early November and the winter season lasts until mid-april. The distance from the town of Kajaani is only 35km. There are 150 kilometers of ski tracks in total, out of which 32 kilometres are lighted. 

Hotel Vuokatti  is located by lake Nuasjärvi, where all the services are within a walking distance. You will stay in a new apartment hotel Vuokatti Suites, which was opened a year ago for Christmas. The size of you hillside apartment is 49,5m² and it has 2 bedrooms and a combined kitchen and living room and an own sauna. There is a modern gym and an experience sauna called Honkalinna. At Christmas all the guests get a chance to have sauna in this extremely comfortable sauna with lake views and a pool outside. Men and women will have their own sauna turns.

Vuokatti Husky  takes you for a sled dog ride in the Winter Wonderland. In our Christmas package we have selected the Alfons' Runaway, which suites for the whole family. It is a 6 km long forest route, which is long enough to make you feel the charm of sledge dog driving. The route is driven in pairs so that in halfway the adults can change places and both get to try mushing . Children sit warn in the sledge.

Short winter days  are an experience in itself. At Christmas the lenght of the day in Kajaani is officially 4 hours. For approximately 6,5 hours you can see outside. Despite of this, nothing stops and in addition to the lighted ski-tracks and slopes there are also a lot of indoor activities available: indoor activity arena, the snow boarding tunnel as well as the Angry Birds Activity Park, Freestyle Hall and Vuokatti Golf Arena.

Snowmobile safari to the Vuokatti hills

This snowmobile safari takes you up to the Vuokatti hills where beautiful winter scenery will open up. We drive this safari with brand new 2016 Touring model snowmobiles – due to new technology it’s safer and more environmentally friendly as it produces lower emissions. On our way back we’ll stop for a break and enjoy hot drinks & snacks. This safari suits well for beginners too.

Husky Safari 2h

This dog sledding adventure takes you through the 6 km long winter forest trail! You’ll also get to know our huskies and learn about their day to day lives. After the ride, we’ll relax and enjoy hot drinks in a cozy Christmas guesthouse.

Snowshoeing 

Snowshoe adventure is the perfect way to explore Vuokatti’s winter landscape authentically. There are ready-made selfguided routes starting from the slopes. We have included a snowshoe rentalf or 3 days.
