Winter in Jyväskylä Region

Many think that life in Finland slows down towards the winter. Not true – at least not in the Jyväskylä Region. You can experience the joys of winter by trying cross-country and downhill skiing, dog sledding, or skating on Lake Jyväsjärvi in the city centre. Those looking for something more extreme can dress for freezing conditions and join a snowmobile safari or go ice-fishing on Lake Päijänne. The most courageous visitors will try snowshoeing or ice swimming.
