Active Winter Break in Koli National Park, 2-4 families

Active Winter Break in Koli National Park, 2-4 families

Fairy tale trees loaded by snow and open views as far as eye can see. Into the Finnish national landscape you get best by snowshoeing or by skiing. Not forgetting relaxation after the exercise.

Koli National Park  is also called the national landscape of Finland.Why? Its views have inspired artists over the years and the landscape has been written, painted and composed in numerous pieces of part. The hills are remains of the Karelidian chain of mountains formed almost 2 milliard years ago. The highest point of Koli hill chain as well as whole southern Finland is called "Ukko-Koli", which is located 347 meters above the sea. The climate is exceptionally cold and therefore trees get extremely high snow-load. One tree might have 3000 kilos of snow on it.

Kolilainen  is a Karelian style holiday house made of logs (204m2), which can host even 17 people. It is located in Loma-Koli area by lake Pielinen (60m from the beach line). There are 3 floors (+basement) with 4 bedrooms. The rest of the sleeping places are on a loft: 2 beds and 5 madrasses. Additionally 2 people are able to sleep on the coach in the living room. The house is ideal for 3-4 families with children or youth. One of the bedrooms is downstairs and suits well also to elderly people. No pets allowed.

Skiing  in its all formats is available. There are alltogether 13 slopes divided in two skiing areas in Koli. Loma-Koli slopes, which are located 1,5km from this house, are well suitable for children and snowboarders. This year they've opened up a children's slopw area. The slopes of Ukko-Koli are more challenging and are located 9km from the house. Same ski pass can be used in both the areas. For cross-country skiers there are 60 kilometers of ski-tracks, the closest track passes the house from 200m distance. In spring it is also really nice to ski on the lake ice. 

For the day of departure we have two activity options for you: 

1. Snow shoeing tour  starts by picking up the gear needed and a short techiniques info at outside the nature center Ukko, after which your guide will lead you to the Koli nature. Snowshoeing is easy and fun for all the people. not depending on your physical condition. This tour suits well also for children from 6 to 15 years and takes 1,5 hours.

2. Visit to the Koli Relax Spa  is a new type of spa, in which you are treating yourself in different pools, showers and saunas. You will get with you a bucket full of personal care products.
