The winter season in Kuopio offers up plenty of opportunities to lace up your ice skates and head out for an unforgettable ice-skating experience, whatever your competence on the ice!
Lake Kallavesi is Finland’s 10th largest lake and — and, when frozen, a perfect l place to skate in a natural setting with the stunning backdrop of the Lakeland region. At 12.5 kilometres long, the natural ice skating track on the lake grants plenty of space to glide on glittering ice under a winter sky.
If you don’t have your own skates, you can rent everything from boots to blades, kick sledges to skis from the Ice Skate Rental company that’s located on the lake itself. There you’ll also find the little Skating Café selling hot food and drinks to hungry skaters. Make sure to make a stop there after your ice-skating – the hot drinks will soon warm you up again.
Act quick, because come spring, these winter wonders will simply melt away.
