The more North you travel in Finland, the more certain you can be, that you will experience the winter wonderland. We spent this year our skiing holiday (again) in our cottage in Jyväskylä area, which is not that North, but the weather still excellent for skiing. It was even better than we expected.
We saw the sun every day and the temperature was ideal, just below zero…maximum -10 degrees of Celsius – just perfect. And the snow – everywhere around us.
The most memorable event (for me) this year was the cross country skiing at the frozen lake at sunny day. The lake is completely flat, so the skiing is easy. Usually you have to make your own ski trails, but kids love it. This year we skied around the lake, (or at least I did it with one of my sons.)
And of course skiing was not the only activity during the holiday…
This year we visited all three skiing centers near by. Himos, Häkärinteet and Laajis.
And the last one: swimming! Aalto Alvari is the best swimming hall for families in Jyväskylä, it is like a spa, but not expensive, because it is public.
Have a nice day! 🙂
