Winter Wonderland

Welcome to Kalajoki to enjoy winter fun at an arctic and adventurous seaside resort!

The winter season usually begins in January, but this varies each year. It usually lasts until April.

Winter in Kalajoki means snowfall and frozen sea. These offer an array of possibilities for outdoor activities.
Keep your eyes open at nightfall, as you might spot the beautiful northern lights!


Let the huskies take the lead!

Head out on the frozen sea with your husky crew for a husky safari or take a snowshoe walk in the snowy landscapes together with a herd of kind huskies.

Fun times on the frozen sea!

Ready to try a new sport? Winter Windsurfing is a great way to challenge yourself and discover the arctic nature in a new way. Beginners will have no trouble getting started! The Rautio Sports Surf Center is here to guide and provide the equipment.

If you are seeking more action in the snow, jump on a snowmobile and head out for a winter safari. Safaritalo is a service provider with both good tips and the right equipment.
Have you ever been skating on the sea or an outdoor skating rink?

The frozen sea is also the right place to test ice-fishing!
Make a hole in the frozen sea and wait for the fish to bite! 


Discover the forest and the surrounding nature in a new way

The snowy dunes and landscapes are best to discover using a fat bike or snowshoes. Go for a hike, take some snacks and a hot drink with you. Maybe have a break at one of the lean do’s in the Rahja archipelago, make a fire and enjoy the warmth of the fire before continuing your journey!

There are close to 40 km of ski tracks in Kalajoki, jump on your skis and try cross country skiing, one of the most popular sports in Finland!

If you arrive to Kalajoki at the right time, you can admire the glimmer of the ice sculptures or even take part by creating your own. Tapion Tupa organizes Ice Sculpting competitions annually in February.
