A Day in Kotatieva

Spend a Memorable Day Ice Skating in Kotatieva

Kotatieva Winter Leisure Park is located in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland. Our speciality is an unique ice skating trail in a forest. All our activities are available for you for the whole day with one fee. In between the snow fun you can take a break in our warm Lappish hut and enjoy refreshing snack and drinks. To make your visit even more stunning we provide a possibility for a private sauna and hot tub experience!

Happy moments for everybody

With us everyone – no matter the age – has a chance to experience real winter fun. Small children can play in snow, slide down the sled hill, enjoy a kicksled ride, or try ice skating with a support. For those who prefer more peaceful going there’s for example an icy track for bowling and plenty of time to enjoy a walk in the forest with snowshoes. So far all our guests have enjoyed ice skating on our forest trail, most of them being first timers! Please see the list of our activities and services below.

Whether you’d like to practice ice skating on a traditional ice rink, to play some ice hockey, or to throw few pirouettes the rink is yours to try.

Sled hill

In Kotatieva you will find a grand hill to slide down from! The slide is built on a large, natural hill and it assures you a fun, speedy ride down.
