Cross-country skiing trails

The overall length of the trail Vuokatti trail network (lower and higher terrain) is 150 kilometres, of which 120 kilometres are fixed up every winter for both kinds of skiing. There are 32 kilometres of lit-up trails in Vuokatti. The lights are not turned on if the temperature is -20˚C or below. The routes of both the lower and higher terrain start from the Vuokatti Hall car park. To improve safety we use wider trails in downhill.

The lower terrain of Vuokatti Sport

The routes of the lower terrain mainly go through dry forest terrain. The small hills are relatively steep, but still short enough for enjoyable skiing. In the Hiihtomaa ski centre of the lower terrain of the Sports Institute, you can learn skiing techniques and go downhill, either with skis or with other devices.

The trails of the fell, i.e. the higher terrain

The higher terrain trails go through a demanding fell landscape where the height differentials are large; as much as 165 metres. There are trekking routes or racing trails of 5–30 kilometres to choose from. From the basic network, there are connecting trails to the accommodation companies in the Vuokatti area and an ice trail to Sotkamo. In Sotkamo, the skiing is on the trails of Hiukka, and there are also routes to choose from to the travel companies to the east and south of Sotkamo. Rest opportunities along the trail network are offered by the huts and lean-tos marked on the trail map.
