Taivalkoski Hostel

Hostel Taivalkoski

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Here, we focus on the essential. The winter sports training grounds start almost at your doorstep, and the terrain challenges even the toughest of athletes. What’s more, the accommodation is clean and inexpensive and everything in the concept is designed to meet the needs of athletes. At Vaara Sport, you will surmount the hills – and your limits.

In Taivalkoski, there is plenty of space to get wild or relax in the nature.
