How to reach Linnansaari in winter

As soon as the ice is thick enough we mark the ice trail from Oravi to Linnansaari. The ice trail is suitable for tour skating and kicksledding. Next to the ice trail runs a maintained skiing and hiking route. Stay on the marked trails for the sake of your own safety and not to disturb the seals. The ice trail from Linnansaari to Järvisydän is opened in the end of January.

You can rent equipment  such as skates, skies, snow shoes, fishing equipment, winter clothes etc.  from Oravi and Järvisydän

Kiosk & Cafeteria

Linnansaari cafeteria is open on weekends during the tour skating season if the weather is permitting. The cafeteria is also open on request for groups. Please check the latest ice information and opening hours in the tour skating journal.

Other services

There are campfire places and outdoor toilets on the main island and on Pikku-Lappi. 
The marked hiking trails on Linnansaari are perfect for snow shoeing. Please stay in the forest, do not walk on the shore where you might disturb the seals.
