- Rovaniemi is surrounded by diverse landscape with its rolling hills, great rivers and Lappish nature. Forest areas start right outside the city and are easily accessible. The Ounasvaara area which has been built-up as a vast recreational site, offers several routes for hiking, mountain-biking, and several other activities. During the winter, the area is home for winter sports and the ski-jumping towers stand out boldly from the side of the mountain. After the short drive from the city, the tour starts from the foot of Ounasvaara mountain, from where we take the ski-lift to the top. At the top, we choose from the various routes and take a short hike, while enjoying the views from over the city. Decent from the hill is by a toboggan ride 750m long and boasts a height difference of 110m! The sledges run down the hillside in an open steel pipe and they are equipped with breaks.
The tour is suitable for all ages, but does include a fair amount of walking, therefore requiring a certain fitness level.
