The Ukonniemi area’s wide range of accommodations, spas and outstanding supplementary services for training camps make Imatra an excellent choice as a base camp for first-snow training. Gyms, maintenance facilities and supplementary training locations, among others, are all within walking distance. In addition, compared to skiing destinations in northern Finland, athletes arriving from the south can save as much as an entire training day in travelling time.
