In hot summer days nothing can be better than dive into water on one of Vuokatti beaches. The best one is in Sotkamo central area – Hiukka beach. Ice swimming places with all the facilities are, for example, at Vuokatti Sports Institute and Vuokatinhovi.
Hiukka beach in Sotkamo is a perfect swimming spot and a place with magnificent views. This beach suits for swimming for the whole family. Sapsojärvi lake is shallow and comfortable to have fun in the water. In summer there is a cafe open.
The beach area has a beach volleyball field and a tennis court a bit further away. There are convenient walking paths and nature trails leading to the beach. In winter these paths turn into ski trails that can be reached by taking Vuokatti ice track.
