Ounasvaara Ski Resort is located almost in the centre of the city of Rovaniemi. From the Northern side of Ounasvaara mountain, you’ll find a modern Outdoor resort where you can downhill ski, snowboard, or ski while enjoying the international atmosphere. Ounasvaara’s slopes are suitable for both beginners and professionals.
Summer is also a great time to visit Ounasvaara. The super popular summer bobsleigh track on the Ounasvaara hill is a destination which you don’t want to skip but to visit every summer over and over again. A safe chair lift down below the slope at Ounasvaara Ski Centre takes you up to the top of the hill, where a magnificent view spreads out. Or you can ride marked downhill cycling tracks, or mountain bike track. If you didn’t bring your own bike, you can hire a bike at the equipment rental centre. There are also popular fat bikes available, both in children’s sizes and as electric bikes for adults. Kids can practise in the dirt bike track, which is one of the best ways for young riders to learn bike control.
You can easily get to Rovaniemi by plane, by train or by car. And remember, Santa Claus lives in Rovaniemi and he likes also Ounasvaara.
