Vuokatinvaara, and Vuokatti sports complex offers excellent facilities for winter sports even during the snowless seasons in the form of a ski tunnel and recently renovated roller ski track. And to make things even easier, the roller skiing track is situated right next to the entrance of the ski tunnel. So you could have the best of both worlds during the same day!
The surroundings of the roller ski track offer a spectacular view of local nature and Vuokatti landscape. In addition to this, the track passes by the biathlon stadium, so serious biathlon training is possible.
