We went out on a sled right across the lake. The ice was transparent and about 12 inches thick. An extremely beautiful place but one of us got frostbite! more »
Beautiful place to visit, if you come in the winter then you can take a trip out on the ice and fish, in the summer it's the most amazing place to sit and have a break or eat lunch!
Beautiful location. It was great to watch the Northern Lights here. We stayed at the nearby hostel. We had the most amazing view of lake directly from our bedroom window. Which also allowed us to watch the Northern Lights from bed. It's beautiful space for taking photos or cross country skiing. I recommend you bring your family. And I hope to return in the spring and summer. The train station is very very very close. It's well worth the long travel and train ride to get here. Take a chance and experience something amazing. We brought our children and had a fantastic time. Visit the naturum nearby. Enjoy the wildlife and even the cold. It was negative 30 degrees Celsius when we were there but we still had an amazing time.
