The ski season in Vuokatti is exceptionally long, as it starts already in mid-October. Our ski season starts on 14 October at 8 am – whatever the weather. Vuokatti Sport’s first snow track offers 1.5 kilometres’ worth of cross-country skiing, which is gradually extended to a total length of 9–10 km.

In addition to skiing, you can enjoy the autumn tint on foot or by bike. The various hiking and biking trails in Vuokatti will lead you to forests, beaches and hills – they offer stunning scenery and just the right amount of challenge for enthusiasts of all abilities. If you didn’t happen to bring your own bike, you can rent a variety of different bikes with or without electricity from Vuokatti Ski Service. And in September, as the evenings darken, the northern lights begin their colourful dance.

Did you know that there are two national parks in the Vuokatti tourist area? Hiidenportti National Park, located about 50 kilometres from Vuokatti, is an excellent day trip destination with almost 30 kilometres of marked and duck board trails. At the heart of the national park is a rugged gorge, one of the most remarkable natural attractions in the whole county. The most popular starting point for hikes is the Palolampi guidance point, where you can find a cooking shelter, a fireplace and a guesthouse that can be rented for daytime use.

The Tiilikkajärvi National Park was established to preserve the wild rivers, ridges and aapa mires surrounding the Tiilikka lake. The park has around 27 kilometres of marked trails, most of which run near the lake. The landscape is dominated by low, narrow and pine-clad ridges, and a good two-thirds of the park’s area is marshland. The Tiilikkajärvi lake is an excellent destination in the autumn, as you can pick berries and mushrooms in the area. Tiilikkajärvi is about 80 kilometres from Vuokatti, making it a great day trip destination.
