A great deal of national and international meetings are arranged in Kajaani every year and the number of business occasions and incentive journeys is increasing.

Organisers have a broad range of meeting facilities and accommodation to choose from. Social programmes based on Kajaani’s beautiful natural setting and rich cultural heritage make meetings an unforgettable experience.

Strong cultural roots

Kajaani has long-established expertise in culture, and the roots of local culture lie deep in history. The score of theatre plays and concerts arranged in Kaukametsä concert hall and the town’s art galleries make sure culture continues to be a key factor in local life.

The town library and various museums offer possibilities to admire artists’ works and read about the town’s colourful history.

Nature at the heart of it all

Four distinct seasons and pure nature provide a range of settings for memorable experiences. For instance, Ruuhijärvi Lake is a fast developing fishing destination, and the Vuolijoki area includes the Talaskangas nature reserve and the Otanmäki Bird Basin.

Kajaani has great facilities for competition sports and recreational exercise, indoors and out, including a nine-hole golf course.

Lakeland is covered by more water than land. The heart of the region is Saimaa, the largest lake in Finland, which nestles several cities on its shores and is home to the endangered Saimaa ringed seal.
