This is Koli National Park!
You are at Break Sokos Hotel Koli, in the National Park! Always more than just a hotel, Break means a vibrant and refreshing interlude from everyday life. Spoil yourself with a nice bath or go downhill skiing along the Ukko-Koli slopes. Be inspired by Koli, as the great names of Finnish art did in their day. Enjoy yourself! Our staff will inform you of all the different ways you can relax. Ask the staff to lend you a pair of Reino slippers and feel comfortable. If you like them, why not buy a pair of your own at the Shop by Sokos Hotels.
Koli's impressive scenery is an inspiration to all
“A piece of Finland, a combination of almost each and every aspect of the country," wrote Juhani Aho of Koli, which he visited several times. Koli is all that, a favourite Finnish scenery with hills, lakes, forests and islands. The peak of Ukko-Koli (253 m above Lake Pielinen) is the best place to experience all that. Breathe in the Finnish national scenery. It is always a powerful experience. This also applies to "Autumn Landscape of Lake Pielisjärvi", a painting by Eero Järnefelt. The painting is currently on display at the Ateneum art museum. It was painted on the peak of Koli.
A break to match your mood
A barbecued steak with a hill view The specialty of Grill It!, the hotel restaurant, is the magnificent view of Koli National Park, and a charcoal barbecue which provides a unique taste to all the food provided by the restaurant. Koli of course cherishes North Karelian cuisine, so our menu also provides local traditional delicacies in addition to steaks. When you get really hungry while downhill skiing or doing other activities, have a tasty pizza at the pizzeria café.
Relax in the heat of potstone sauna benches
You cannot leave before you have spoiled yourself at the Koli Relax Spa, our new spa with a view. Enjoy the gentle heat on potstone sauna benches by Tulikivi. The benches are the first of their kind in Finland. Try out all of our different pools. Select the most suitable from our five ready-made bath programmes. We provide Finnish Lumene products. Enjoy the beautiful scenery while sitting in the view terrace's hot tub. When you leave, you will not be the same person as when you arrived.
Wonder at, stand in awe, be inspired and fall in love with the beauty of the National Park. Wear hiking boots, go hiking on the hills, or use snowshoes in winter. We have a large number of well-marked hiking routes to keep you on the right track. Take some photos so you can enjoy the scenery later, too. Or, are you a painter? If you have time for only a short break, see the Koli nature at the Ukko Visitor Centre, right next to the hotel. Or ride the scenic lift up and down. The ride is 770 metres, and it only takes eight minutes. A break to match your mood.
Wear a helmet and go down the hill
The action-packed downhill skiing slopes of Ukko-Koli are accessed right from the hotel yard. The area has many kinds of hills for all skill levels. If you are not interested in skiing, we have lots of other activities. Go on a dog sled ride or go snowmobiling. Rent a mountain bike or a canoe. There are great experiences for all.
The fun doesn't stop there
We hope your daily life or celebration was refreshed by your visit to Koli. See you soon again in another season, or any time you need to relax! Stay at our hotel, or choose from the other nine Break hotels. How about a few days on the Vuokatti slopes at Break Sokos Hotel Vuokatti?
