We took an organised trip, but there were only 5 of us. We put on snow boots, which were quite hard work, and ended up in a hut, cooking sausages and heating berry juice over an open fire. Scenery was of film-set beauty. Just stunning.

If you are in Rovaniemi and have a couple of hours to spare take the ounasvaara trail. The walk around the woods is beautiful and the trail is well marked(you jus have to follow the man and snow sign). You can get a good aerial view of the town.

There are a lot of places to start your cross-country ski adventure in Rovaniemi. Perhaps the best place to do so is Ounasvaara. Long tracks and beautiful landscapes, what more can one wish for? Hiking to the top is also recommended.

I visited Ounasvaara with my friend on a bit frosty day (-10) and it seems like a nice place to hang out. The prices are reasonable, and the slopes were take care of. It is a good place to learn downhill skiing and hone one's skills.

Instructor bookings are very efficient and equipment of high quality. We enjoyed our instructor tremendously and he managed to get our family of four to ski after a lesson of 45 minutes. The slopes are not too technical and a good place to ski as a novice. I do think that the restaurant can be improved as the kitchen was... More

We spent three days for kids to learn ski at rendi's park. Good. My boy now know how to ski already. My girls enjoying ski there. Small but sufficient for beginners. For ski liftchairs, not easy for children. My friend's daughters falling down from liftchairs ;-(

We had a great time learning to ski here. The center has great cross-country tracks and a couple of simple and medium complexity downhill slopes. You can rent equipment on site. There is also a children area with a baby lift. We got a one-on-one ski lesson and the instructor was amazing - so patient and fun. The staff were... More

once the mosquitos are fought off with some repellent, go out onto the hillside and enjoy the midnight sun go by - it is phantastic and probably one of the better places in lapland to watch.

We walked this trail (ounasvaara) in summer. Easy starting point is the lapland hotel, follow the blue signs with a white walking man. Make sure you wear proper waterproof hiking shoes, part of trail goes over stones and part through wet moss, your shoes will sink into water 10 cm even during a dry period. The walk is really nice,... More

I took my two children here for the day and taught them to ski. I couldn't have asked for a better place to do it. There is a separate nursery slope with an elevator lift that is very easy to use. We visited at the end of the season and it was very quiet. You can get there easily by... More
