Ice-skating in Finland

Ice-skating in Finland is very common winter activity for Finns together with cross-country skiing. Children from 1st grade at school do ice-skating in winter time at school sports, maybe that is a reason why many world-famous ice-hockey players come from Finland, like Teemu Selänne, Saku Koivu, Jari Kurri and Patrik Laine.

Ice-skating in Finland is possible almost everywhere in winter. Basically, in every city and small town there are frozen skating rings and ice rinks where people can ice skate. Another, natural ice rink is a frozen lake or sea surface. Ice-skating on the lake is something to explore which you can do in Rock and Lake log cabins by Lake Soukkio. It is suitable for everybody: you can do it alone, together with your friends and family or even with small children at any age. At the same time, you can enjoy the silence of the nature, the fresh air and the sound of scratching ice. Try and explore the joy of this easy and fun winter activity. Ice-skating in Finland is maybe something you should add on your bucket list? Try also kick sledding, fat biking or ice-swimming!

Fact you maybe didn´t know about the ice-skating trail:
To get the trail in good shape and keep it open when it´s snowing takes quite time and effort. When the ice of the lake is strong enough the freezing of the trail begins. Water is carried on the ice surface and once it freezes more water is poured on it. Repeating this a couple of times ensures that the trail is in good shape. There still might be cracks on the ice because of natural movement of the lake ice.

Please note, that the ice-skating trail is primarily intended for ice-skating. To keep the trail in good condition for all skaters, please do not brake or make any holes or cracks on the ice. For the safety of other people on the ice-skating trail or near it, dogs are not allowed to run free.
