The location of Rokuanhovi just beside the Rokua National Park and in the heart of the Geopark region allows for spectacular experiences in nature. Rokua was chosen as the Finnish Outdoor Destination of the Year for 2018.
Spending time in nature is one of the best means of relaxation and recreation. There are many ways to get around while simultaneously enjoying the magnificent scenery, sounds of nature, the silence and fragrances.
There are nearly 60 kilometres of marked outdoor trails and start near Rokuanhovi. We are happy to arrange for guided hikes on nature trails of various lengths in Rokua National Park. In summer, barefoot walks, standup paddleboarding, swimming in natural waters is relaxing at its best.
At Rokuanhovi you don’t have to accomplish anything, just be and relax.
Relaxing in the gentle steam of the lakeside sauna and in the ambience of the refurbished smoke sauna, a dip in the clear waters of Jaakonjärvi lake during the summer, or rolling in the snow while taking a sauna bath in the winter are wonderful experiences. Bathing in the hot tub under the splendour of a starry sky is magnificence at its best.
Those seeking more rigorous activities have the opportunity to participate in the summer workouts of Olympic skier Keijo Kurttila. You can try out what the Champions Hill feels like or how a guided trail run in Rokua National Park goes. In the wintertime, participating in Keijo Kurttila’s ski school, guided ski workouts, or trekking is an experience in itself. Through our partners we are able to organise fishing trips in summer and winter. Our services also include snowmobile safaris and snowshoe trekking. Court dances with great artists invite you to dance on Rokua’s best dance floor in an unforgettable atmosphere.
Playful group competitions can be tailored to suit your group. The most important thing is to have fun. Since the beginning, our services have included learning dance steps at the pace of dance aerobics, and various dance courses of different levels.
A frisbee golf course, standup paddleboards and a boat are available.
The municipality of Utajärvi is responsible for the maintenance of the Rokua ski trails.
