Aurora Skating

Ice Skate with Auroras

Kotatieva Winter Leisure Park is located in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland. Kotatieva is an authentic, peaceful gem for its visitors, offering them a very special opportunity to ice skate on a unique forest ice trail.

Try something truly different! Experience an unforgettable evening ice skating among snowy trees far away from normality, admiring the breathtaking Aurora Borealis paired with the stars and the moon. Should the Northern Lights be too shy to show up, you’ll be still enjoying the peacefulness and silence far from the rush, noises and lights of the town. Celebrate being together with your family and friends, throw yourself into the world of ice skating, and savor the tastes in the atmospheric dinner. To make the evening even more special you can also choose to have a sauna and hot tub after ice skating!
