Kajaani, and the region of Kainuu, is especially well known for the number of winter sports resorts. The Vuokatti Sports Institute in Sotkamo with its exercise facilities provide a year-round possibility for cross-country skiing, thanks to the first ski tunnel in the world. In summer activities available range from fishing to golf, berry picking, track and field, football, and baseball. The Vuokatti area offers a unique variety of sports both indoors and outdoors.
