Vuokatti, thanks to its unique geographical situation in Kainuu region, is one of the most popular all year around holiday resorts in Finland. Situated at the cross road of the famous Finnish Lakeland area and Lapland, Vuokatti and the surrounding area offer both domestic and international visitors a mixture of the highlights of the authentic Finnish experience in one package. In winter time one can easily make all the “must do” Finnish snow activities (i.e. snowmobile, reindeer and husky safaris) in Vuokatti area while as in summer time Vuokatti and the surrounding area suit ideally for a visitor who looks for the Finnish summer and nature activities such as hiking, fishing, wild life watching or simply cottage holiday with the sauna experience.
