• Walking to Linnansaari


    The skating route from Oravi is still closed, the minus degrees last night created a thin layer of ice on the surface but it is not strong enough for skating, so now the surface ice must be allowed to freeze in peace to as good and smooth as possible, so it is NOT allowed to go to the skating route to make any tracks. Along the winter hiking trail marked with red sticks, you can walk to Linnansaari or to the lake hut to fry sausages.
