Ice skating

In the Jyväskylä Region, you can skate throughout the year. You can spend a winter’s day skating along tour skating tracks, including a 2.4-kilometre track on Lake Jyväsjärvi. You can also try one of the many artificial ice rinks, or skating rinks at sports parks – with or without a hockey stick. You can even go skating in the summer if you book the facility of your choice in advance.
