Paljakka Ski Resort - welcome to your year round Finnish nature holiday!

Paljakka holiday resort is located in Arctic Lakeland, the Kainuu province of Finland, but if you look at the map it is also located in the center of all Finland. No reason to travel further.

Paljakka's attraction as a holiday resort is based on its location in the middle of the clean and beautiful nature.

This versatile ski resort offers 11 downhill skiing slopes, ski retal and ski servcis plus all the services you most commonly find in Finnish ski resorts. Paljakka is located right amid the highest fells in Kainuu. Skiers especially praise the condition of the slopes and their profile in Paljakka, as well as the fact that skiing here can be enjoyed without big crowds even in the high season. The slopes’ incline to the west and their location in the snowiest area in Finland ensure that the snow conditions are good even with natural snow.

You also find a wide range of  other winter activities in Paljakka, for you to enjoy on your own or as guided safaris. A wide network of cross-country ski tracks and a walking route in the wintry forest offers you the easy access to the snowy forest, skiing or just walking. Snowmobiling, snowshoeing and husky safaris and visits to a reindeer farm are our most popular guided safaris wintertime.

Although Paljakka is best known as a winter holiday resort, it has a lot to offer also in summer and autumn. Of all the summer hiking destinations, especially Paljakka Nature Park and Hepoköngäs, one of the highest free waterfalls in Finland, offers an authentic and a memorable contact with Finland’s nature. And we all know even a short contact with nature and sunshine makes all of us feel better! Summer and autumn offer plenty of activities to enjoy on your own or as guided tours offered by our local safari companies. The sandy beach in the heart of the resort, the Louhijoki River flowing through the resort and the magnificent views from the top of the hill pamper you with the very Finnish summer landscape.
