Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Ukkohalla Ski&Sport Resort is located in Kainuu in Finland By Lake Syvajarvi. All types of downhill skiers are taken into consideration on the slopes of Ukkohalla. Complete beginners have their own area where they can safely improve their skills before taking on the larger slopes. The difference in levels in Ukkohalla is 170 metres.Something suitable can be found for everyone from the 14 slopes available. The most challenging ones are the renowned Hallapark and Treeride slopes, where you can watch the most incredibly skilful tricks performed if you don’t dare to try ski jumps or snowboarding rails yourself! JuniorPark is for children but is also a safe place for their parents to get familiar with ski-jumping and rail-sliding. Ukkohalla’s snow reliability is unique in all of Finland – the season on the slopes always lasts at least till the 1st of May.

Ukkohalla is a beautiful place with nice easy slopes for skiing, plenty of cross-country skiing tracks and opportunities to rent snowmobiles. Very quiet, not a lot of visitors and mostly middle-aged couples. If you're looking for after-ski this is definitely not the place, but if you want to enjoy the quiet nature and relax, you are spot on! A small shop exists with essentials, there's one ski restaurant and bar and a nice saunaworld after a day out in the snow. Nearby Paljakka and Vuokatti offer more demanding slopes within an hours drive from Ukkohalla. This place hasn't reached its full potential yet, and could put a bit more effort on services but it's a great option instead of the busy buzzing Lapland.

Ukkohalla ski resort is a nice place for people who want to exercise traditional skiing and downhill skiing. Tracks are in good shape but elevators have long queues. Accommodation reservation has to be done early, since especially during school holiday time the place is popular. The resort has a nice sauna world with a number of different saunas. A small bowling hall can be used when the weather does not allow outdoors activities.

This is the best place for everybody who loves ski (alpine or nordic). There is a snow everywhere even in the snowless winter. Everything is perfect: ski-tracks, mountain ski, cottages, stuff.

Hi,

Sorry to say this, but I received a mail to comment attractions near my hometown Oulu. Ukkohalla was listed as one of those, and I need to wonder why...
That's 2 hours drive away, no public transportation easily available. The only change to get there is to rent a car - driving is easy, it's only countryside all the way.

But distance is only negative side, and that applies to many places to visit in this are. If you enjoy outdoor activities or wilderness and like to reach peaceful surrounding, that's one of the places "around" Oulu to go. There is plenty of cottages available, some restaurants,and even some fairly popular events like wordchampionship of swamp soccer arranged there.
As a local, this is not my favorite place, but persons coming from busy metropols may find this as different place for short vacations,
