Winter lasts for five months in Finland so people entertain themselves with outdoor activities such as ice art. One of the best places to take the kids is SnowCastle Resort in Kemi, home to the magnificent SnowCastle.
This structure, made of snow and sea water ice, has pathways that lead visitors to fairytale-like scenes with snow sculptures. Guided tours are available.
The new SnowExperience365 and the IceRestaurant365 as well as other restaurants, a souvenir shop and sauna rooms are in the new main building. Book a stay at SnowCastle Resort here.
