Finnish national road 4, which stretches across Finland, goes through the Sodankylä urban area to Nordkapp in Northern Norway and serves as a transport route for a large proportion of tourists and business travellers travelling by car in Lapland.
In Sodankylä village, there is demand for high-quality accommodation for leisure and sports tourists and business travelers. There is already a shortage of accommodation capacity, and with the development of the mining industry and the science and research sector, the demand will keep growing.
In the high season, the two hotels in the area are unable to meet the demand for accommodation or the need for experience and program services brought about by the growth in tourism. The urban area also currently lacks conference and cultural facilities, as well as high-quality restaurant services during the evenings.
Wellness Sport Hotel will be situated by the river in the village center, and the project will require partners in the future. Preliminary market analysis as well as preliminary investment and profitability calculations have already been made for the hotel project.
