Winter Holiday by Lake Saimaa with activities on ice

Winter Holiday by Lake Saimaa with activities on ice

Lake Saimaa is one of the best tour skating destinations in Finland! In this longer holiday package you have time to move on the snowy and frozen ice not only by skating but also by kicksledging, skiing snowshoeing and snowmobiling. You will first get an introduction to multiple choice of winter sports on ice and you will make a guided skating or horse sleigh tour to the Linnansaari National Park

Holiday Resort Järvisydän  is not only a summer paradise by lake Saimaa but also a different kind of a winter sports center specialised in touring on lake ice. You will get the equipment you like, either tour skates, skies, a kicksled (see our photo), or snowshoes. Breakfast, soup lunch and dinner will be served at the hotel restaurant. Each villa also has its own kitchen if you prefer to cook yourself.

Depending on the weather conditions there are alltogether from 20 to 40 kilometres of well-kept ice and ski routes.
