country of a thousand frozen lakes
An excellent, and a very Finnish way to enjoy a sunny winter’s day is going skiing on a frozen lake. If you are not a fan of skiing, you can make your way with snowshoes and small children can be pulled along in a sled. A kick-sled is also ideal. Take along some hot drinks, sandwiches and relish the unique scenery of the glistening white.
And just because the lake is frozen doesn’t mean you can’t go fishing. Ice fishing requires its own equipment but it is a great way to spend the day. Make sure you bring along really warm clothes and a lot of patience!
