    4/1/2024

    According to the weather forecast, today is the best day to collect the sign poles from the ice. From now on, it is entirely at your own risk to move around on the ice.

    The signposts, benches and lake hut will be on ice over Easter, and next week we will be collecting the signposts from the ice. Today you can hike to Linnansaari and snowshoe the nature trails or, if you like, book a sleigh ride to the island. The ice carried a kicksled in the morning but due to the warm weather the ice surface softens quickly during the day, so walking is the best option. The rental shop and cafeteria in Oravi is open today from 9am to 5pm and the kitchen is open from 12pm to 4pm. Monday is our own Easter holiday and the shop will be closed then.
