Winter fun in Sappee

Sappee mountain
This winter we have plenty of snow so winter sports are guaranteed also outside the ski resort. Cross country skiing tracks are in great shape and are found in every direction. There is a good illuminated cross country track close to the Ilvas cottage in Aitoo. There are also many other marked skiing tracks around.  During the winter months you may also try snowshoeing for example in Laipanmaa next to Sappee.

Skating is possible almost in every Finnish village, if you have your own skates.  In Saarikylät (lake roine in Kangasala) there is a long track for skating as well as skate renting. You may also use toboggan.


More exotic winter fun is  safari in the snow with jeep cars.  Last week we opened the tracks in the forest by driving. Matti Penttilä owner of Pro Fantasy Safaris invited us to test, and it was so much fun!  It is challenging but with good instructions you’ll do it without problems. Take a look at the images below. During the trip we had a nice break with a snack by camp fire in the forest.
