Road trip from the frozen sea to snowy fells

There’s no escaping winter in these latitudes nor do the locals want to. The season has its own, magical atmosphere and brings out new perspectives to the ordinary. Everything looks, smells and tastes different in winter. And instead of closing down, winter opens up experiences that you just can’t have in the summer months.

Find yourself breathing in local art and culture, diving into the fascinating world of what life used to be around these parts, or trying out new things. Bring your favourite woolly hat and your bathing suit, everything else is for rent!

The winter air gives you happy tears

Keep yourself in motion in the winter – not to stay warm, but to stay happy! Make the most of snow covered fells and forests, and go full throttle on the frozen lakes and seashores. Find new perspectives into familiar sports. Ready, set, go!
