In this area, winter truly lives up to its name. Of all of Finland, this region will be the most likely to be covered by snow all winter. There is no better way to view this pure, white landscape than to take a fast ride along one of Finland's best snowmobile trails or a more peaceful dogsled tour. Make an excursion into the wilds on snowshoes. The snow and ice attract cross-country skiers to the trails, slalom skiers to Taivalvaara Fell and anglers to try their hand at ice fishing.
