The all-in-one destination for your active winter holidays!

Away from the big crowds, situated in the centre of the beautiful region Kuusamo-Lapland, in the northeast of Finland, Taivalvaara offers the best for your holiday.

The region is one of the snowiest in Finland. Normally the first snow is expected in the beginning of November and will be covering the landscape until the end of April. That creates lots of possibilities to enjoy the snow anyway you want.

Ski Resort Taivalvaara offers something for everyone; beautiful Finnish landscape and lots of snow, far away from the big crowds. These ingredients make Taivalvaara atractive for the whole family.
