14:00 - 16:00
Scenic Rovaniemi Hike
2 hrs. excursion by car and foot
Daily Departure at 14:00
Rovaniemi is surrounded by beautiful nature. The rivers and the rolling hills make up scenery that carries your gaze far away. The summer tobogganing taking you down from Ounasvaara is a highlight of your hike.
We transfer to the foot of Ounasvaara, Rovaniemi’s home-mountain and urban fell. Ounasvaara is a recreational area with hiking and mountain biking trails, ski-slopes and ski-jumping area in the wintertime. We start from the foot of the mountain and take the ski lift to the top. On the top we make a small hike and depending of the direction you choose, there are different stories and sights. There are the ancient shores of Ancylus Lake, which covered most of Scandinavia after the ice age. There is a landscape tower offering great and photogenic views towards Rovaniemi town. And there is a myriad of forest trails taking to be discovered!
After the hike we take the summer toboggan slope down to the starting point. The toboggan slope is 750 m long and its height difference is 110 m. The toboggans run in a steel pipe and they also have breaks.
NB! In case of rain the tobogganing slope will be closed and the excursion moved to the next day.
