Winter activities

The Jyväskylä Region provides versatile opportunities for those enjoying winter activities. There are four skiing centres and hundreds of kilometres of skiing trails in the Region. The well-known ski resorts include, for example, Laajavuori with its terrains along with the Halssila Ski Resort (Halssilan hiihtomaa). The spacious landscapes of the Lake Päijänne provide you with an opportunity to tour ski in the Jyväskylä Region.

Ice-skating is possible in the Jyväskylä Region in the indoor and artificial ice rinks as well as in the natural ice rinks outside, depending on the ice situation. On the Lake Jyväsjärvi, a circa 2.4 kilometres long tour skating track is to be snow blown during frosty winters. Tour skates can be hired, among other things, from the Harbour Café and the Café Kotakahvila in the Lutakko Harbour.

Additional information on up-to-date condition of the skiing trails and tour skating tracks is available by the Visit Jyväskylä Region Tourist Office’s e-mail,
