A traditional winter sports day for the whole family in Linnansaari National Park. On the ice skating route from Oravi to Linnansaari (5km/one way) you can use a kick sledge today, take waterproof shoes. Unfortunately, for tour skating the surface of the ice has softened a bit in some places and there is water on the ice (ca. 4cm). Now the skaters have to wait for minus degrees so that the surface of the ice freezes well. At 8am starts the machineries to make the traditional ski track between Oravi-Linnansaari-Järvisydän (approx. 18km/one way). You can also walk on the winter hiking trail marked with red sticks. Linnansaari has a marked snowshoe trail. The route fee for the skating route is 8€/adult and 4€/child aged 12-16yo, there is no fee for the skiing and walking route. Sleighrides (snowmobile pulling a sleigh) from Oravi to Linnansaari between 10-14 every hour (have to be pre-booked).
