    Tobogganing

    by Sjalen Written Jan 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Children can sometimes borrow toboggans from the ski centre in the Dundret slopes but otherwise the sport shop in the city centre should sell them cheap. Dundret was full of skiers to avoid but we still found a toboggan-friendly hill or two. It just got quite dark on a mid-winter afternoon as it's not floodlit like the ski slopes :)))

    Snowmobile safari

    by Sjalen Updated Jan 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Several companies in the area offer snowmobile tours of anything from 1,5 hours to full days depending on what you are prepared to pay and what you would like to see. There are short tours just giving you a flavour of snowmobile driving, longer tours to take you into the countryside, or evening tours to spot northern lights. Some include a stop for hot drinks or even a meal somewhere in the countryside and most pick you up at your hotel. You can often drive the snowmobile yourself (as long as you have a driving license) although you don't have to - the organisers can do the driving if you like which makes it good if, for instance, you want to bring children along.

    You can also do what the locals do and use the snowmobile tracks along the Vassara River if you manage to rent a snowmobile instead.

    Equipment: The organisers should provide you with warm overalls and gloves.

    River snowmobiling :)

    Downhill skiing

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Mount Dundret, there are several ski slopes, including one for children. You can stay up here at the Dundret hotel or in the holiday village below and ski all you like, but you can also stay downtown and head up here by car. The Arctic winter light doesn't stop you as there are illuminated slopes.

    There are ten kilometres of cross country skiing tracks prepared on Mount Dundret, but you can also ski in the city centre, following tracks along the river.
