Winter in Finland is something to experience! The snow in Joutsa is clean and white and possibilites for winter outdoor activities are excellent. A ski track starts from Haihatus outdoor and by kick-sled you can swing to the stores, cafe´s or a nearby skating rink.
A frosty day evening you can enjoy a hot sauna and while cooling off jump into the snow and make snow angels under the bright starry sky.
