    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tahko Spa is a full-fledged, albeit a bit small, spa in Tahko ski resort in Nilsiä, Finland. It offers various possibilities to break away from skiing for a while. The choices include a spa with various swimming pools, bowling lanes, gym, a sport area for floorball or badminton, one bar, and a restaurant. There is also a small shop selling some groceries, toys, and souvenirs. A big and well equipped play area for children can be found at the downstairs. The spa can provide childcare on request.

    The spa itself consists of Finnish and Turkish saunas -- separate for both sexes -- and a pool area with 25 meter big pool, and various smaller pools for children, and a hot tub / jacuzzi. There is also an outdoor pool, but it was closed due to cold weather (-23C) when we visited the spa. Remember to bring your own towels, unless you want to rent them for three euros a piece.

    Treatments, such as massage or facials, are available, too.

    Much better than i expected, good pizzas to take away.
    prices slightly higher than regular pizzerias, but that is understandable since its "inside" hotel.

    Also servers Hesburger-chain burgers, not much to mention

    Favorite Dish: pizza

    Good spot to stop for a while during skiing, at western slopes, so called lännen lokari hut at the end of western side slopes and ski elevator.

    Warm gluhwein was my choice while it was freezing. Place has full A-rights, meaning alcohol in several forms.
    warm reindeer soup etc.

    Favorite Dish: alcohol

    Tahkovuori is the southernmost full scale ski resort in Finland. Located about 60 kilometers up north from Kuopio, and thus about 450 kilometers from Helsinki, Tahko boasts an impressive set of activities around the year. The first and foremost focus is on skiing, downhill and cross-country, but there are a lot of other sport possibilities as well.

    The slopes are not very high, but good for skiing and snowboarding. There is a good selection of cross-country skiing tracks with varying difficulty. If you are afraid of slopes, you can always ski on the frozen lake. For other winter-time activity, consider Tahko Spa that offers also bowling, badminton and other indoor sports. For people not interested in sports, Tahko has all kinds of motorised fun, such as snowcats or rally cars on the lake.

    Golf is the biggest attraction during summer. There are two golf courses and third one is being built (situation in 2009). Hiking, rowing, and biking are also good ways to burn calories in summer.

    The easiest way to get to Tahko is to drive by car. There are direct buses during winter weekends from major cities in Finland. The nearest train stations are in Siilinjärvi and Kuopio, about 45 and 65 kilometers away, respectively. Airport is somewhere in between the train stations. All have bus or taxi connections to Tahko.

    For accommodation, there are a few hotels, several chalet apartments and numerous amount of cottages. There is more than a dozen restaurants, some providing also take-away options. Check Tahko's homepage for more information.
