Kicksledding on Lake Näsijärvi


The weather conditions for Nordic skating have varied a lot this season. Unfortunately (for skating enthusiasts), it has been snowing rather quickly every time after there has been a longer period of subzero temperatures. So, the skating season in the lake areas has been challenging. However, there are nice options for skating such as kicksledding. Even though it’s really different, one can stay on ice at least.

Below you can find a video and some pictures of our kicksled tour of 71 km from Tampere to Ruovesi on Lake Näsijärvi.
