Sport and Leisure Services


The Town of Paimio offers an array of both indoor and outdoor pursuits and superb sports venues. These include an artificial football pitch with under-soil heating, and an indoor ice-skating rink. If you are a skiing enthusiast, check out the 700-metre long ski tunnel with excellent year-round conditions for cross-country skiing and ski trails that accommodate both classic and skate skiers. Furthermore, the ski jumping hills with a plastic matting enable training in the non-snow months, as well.

The swimming centre, located in the same building with the Paimio Comprehensive School, is available for swimming in the winter time. Its facilities include a 25-metre three-lane pool, a comprehensive gym complex, saunas, a toddler pool, a cold plunge, and a jetted bath tub for added fun. In the summer time, however, swimmers are most likely to be found at the open-air swimming areas. 

Fabulous opportunities are available in Paimio and its surroundings also for those in for nature tripping. Apart from the four-kilometre nature trail of Paimio, widely known to hikers, there are also many other excellent nature routes for various outdoor activities.
