In winter, you can go skating in the middle of the city!

There is a skating rink at Rautatientori next to the railway station, and another in Kallio, a few tram stops away from the centre.

You can also go cross-country skiing a few kilometres off the city centre at Paloheinä. The area has several kilometres of skiing tracks and a ski rental shop.

Helsinki even boasts a year-round indoor skiing hall, Kivikon hiihtohalli.

More detailed information on a range of outdoor activities and on equipment rentals can be had from the Helsinki City Tourist and Convention Bureau website.
