Europe’s Longest Toboggan Run
Tobogganing is one of the most popular winter sports for families, and Lapland is home to one of the longest toboggan runs in Europe. It's a whopping 1km long!
It's child-friendly, free to use and lots of fun for the whole family. Plastic toboggans can be picked up from your hotel (there may be up to a $2 charge to use these) and used wherever you’d like, but the dedicated toboggan run is a must-do in your spare time.

Walking on snowy paths and through the wilderness of Lapland is always a magical experience. Whether you want to walk or cross-country ski, there are plenty of opportunities in Lapland.
The routes are perfect for those who want to make the most of the snow and truly appreciate the enchanting scenery.
