Everyone has a sled around Rovaniemi - they are cheap and practical: and this is where you can use them for fun! Loads of smiling adults wander past the ski pistes (where an advanced ski-er can spend a happy half day for inflated prices) and past the rubber tube slope (also expensive) to slide down the hill next the ski-jumps...

We took an organised trip, but there were only 5 of us. We put on snow boots, which were quite hard work, and ended up in a hut, cooking sausages and heating berry juice over an open fire. Scenery was of film-set beauty. Just stunning.

If you are in Rovaniemi and have a couple of hours to spare take the ounasvaara trail. The walk around the woods is beautiful and the trail is well marked(you jus have to follow the man and snow sign). You can get a good aerial view of the town.

There are a lot of places to start your cross-country ski adventure in Rovaniemi. Perhaps the best place to do so is Ounasvaara. Long tracks and beautiful landscapes, what more can one wish for? Hiking to the top is also recommended.

I visited Ounasvaara with my friend on a bit frosty day (-10) and it seems like a nice place to hang out. The prices are reasonable, and the slopes were take care of. It is a good place to learn downhill skiing and hone one's skills.

Instructor bookings are very efficient and equipment of high quality. We enjoyed our instructor tremendously and he managed to get our family of four to ski after a lesson of 45 minutes. The slopes are not too technical and a good place to ski as a novice. I do think that the restaurant can be improved as the kitchen was... More

We spent three days for kids to learn ski at rendi's park. Good. My boy now know how to ski already. My girls enjoying ski there. Small but sufficient for beginners. For ski liftchairs, not easy for children. My friend's daughters falling down from liftchairs ;-(

We had a great time learning to ski here. The center has great cross-country tracks and a couple of simple and medium complexity downhill slopes. You can rent equipment on site. There is also a children area with a baby lift. We got a one-on-one ski lesson and the instructor was amazing - so patient and fun. The staff were... More
