Introducing Helsinki, Finland: Let’s ski!

In case you didn’t know, cross-country skiing is one of the most popular sport activity in Finland. The winter months are an ideal time to enjoy the beauty of its snowy landscapes -and what is the best thing; you don’t have to go to the countryside or Lapland to explore the nature. We have great cross-country skiing routes in Helsinki too.

Don’t know how to ski?
No worries, that’s easy to learn – with the support of the Finnish friend, you are a pro in no time.

Don’t have the right equipment?
That’s ok too. You can rent the skies from Unisport ski rental services from Viikki campus. Read the details from here!
