What to do in Finland in winter

Finland is a country of snow and the best time to visit winter wonderland is snowy period from December through March. Winter holiday suits for everyone: if you feel you just want to have peaceful and calm holiday, you can spend time outdoors by admiring magical snowy nature, walk in the forest and try for example backcountry skiing or snowshoeing and maybe even hear the sounds of owls in the forest.

Or do you rather prefer active holidays? The most usual winter activities Finns do are cross-country skiing, ice-skating and ice fishing. No need to travel up to the northern part of Finland to enjoy these activities. The Finnish Lakeland and the beautiful nature offers everything you need and is worthwhile experiencing!

Learning skiing and ice-skating is fun and easy, even for kids. You don’t need to be sporty and trained. Everyone has a great time learning these sports together with friends and family. Or what about dog sledding? Fulfill your dream to meet a kind, blue eyed husky dogs on a husky safari. You will fall in love with them and the joy they have during the speedy and enjoyable safari.

For the more adventurous traveler there is also the possibility of fatbiking in the snow, which will let you experience a totally new way of biking. Or, if you feel like moving your legs, try kick sledding. It is also a great way for the whole family to enjoy being out in nature together and it is a nice way to move from one place to another. Still adventurous but a must do is ice-swimming: the combination of the hot sauna and the dip into the freezing water will let you feel like a totally new person.
