DOZENS OF KILOMETRES OF GREAT CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING ON THE KOLI TRAILS

 
The Koli area offers a variety of opportunities for cross-country skiing. Your choices range from trails of just a few kilometres to Finland’s longest continuous illuminated ski trail of 25 kilometres. The trails vary in demandingness – those that go up to the fells are best suited for experienced skiers, whereas the illuminated trail and the ice skiing trails are even good for learning to ski. Our ski trail maintenance brings us a lot of positive acknowledgement every year.

Descriptions of ski trails


Finland’s longest illuminated trail and a few others

There are over 60 kilometres of ski trails at Koli. The illuminated trail starting from Koli Freetime in Kopravaara goes all of 25 kilometres to Loma-Koli, which makes it Finland’s longest continuous illuminated ski trail. In addition, shorter trails abound. Within the National Park there are two fell trails, a 3-kilometre and a 7-kilometre one, traversing the breath-taking landscapes round Ukko-Koli. The 3-km trail is fairly easy, but the 7-km one is more demanding. As the skiing season advances, the choices increase as new trails are opened in preparation for the two major mass ski events of the year, Maisemahiihto and Ahmanhiihto. Find an electronic map of the Koli ski trails here.

The first-snow trail

The first-snow trail is an 8-kilometre stretch of the illuminated trail, reaching from Kopravaara to the Louhivaarantie junction. The trail runs along a ridge, where snow cover comes earlier than in more low-lying areas. The priming of the first-snow trail begins as soon as there are a few centimetres of snow on the ground. Find info on winter sports equipment rentals here.

Ski trails on Lake Pielinen

When Lake Pielinen freezes over solidly, which happens by early March at the latest, two ice skiing trails are opened. The northern one, 9 kilometres long, runs from Loma-Koli to Vuonislahti, passing the Raapio Lapp hut on the way. The southern one, 11 kilometres long, goes from the foot of the Ukko-Koli slopes to Vuonislahti. The two trails converge in Vuonislahti, from where there is a further trail leading to Paateri.
