Winter Day in Koiteli

Welcome to Koiteli located by the river Kiiminkijoki to spend a wonderful winter day in a good company! The word Koiteli comes from Sami language and means “in the middle”.
You get to enjoy fun snow activities in an island located in the middle of two rapids. Beautiful surroundings, ancient trees and the silence surrounding you will give you the feeling of being also in the center of yourself.

Snow activities include short try outs of snowshoes and traditional kick sledge ‘potkuri’. All these activities will give you the taste of traditional ways of moving around in early days. On top of these you will get to know the well-known arctic animal, reindeer, and hear the stories of a local reindeer herder. And of course, everyone will experience a short ride in a sledge pulled by the reindeer.

After the snow activities the group will enjoy coffee/tea or lunch and everyone will have the chance to make their own souvenir out of wood, leather and pine wood tar. So you will get the scent of Koiteli to take home with you.

Arctic Floating in the Baltic Sea

Do you want to experience something extremely arctic but also greatly relaxing? Come and join us for arctic floating in the sea.

This product takes place in co-operation with sea rescue professionals. Our program starts at their base in Kiviniemi harbour, about 20 km north from Oulu city centre. First we put on proper gear at the dressing rooms. From the harbour we take a sledge pulled by a snowmobile and enjoy a ride to the giant ice field that's covering the Bothnia Bay during the winter time. The white beauty surrounding you is magnificent! When we get close to the Island Kotakari you see a big hole in the ice waiting for the arctic floaters. You will get all the necessary instructions to enjoy your floating and to enjoy this relaxing yet exiting winter program altogether. The program can be realized also in the evening and if you are lucky, you can admire the Northern lights while floating in the sea!
