Lapland in Helsinki
Experience winter and snow in summer!
Wonderful winter of Lapland was brought to Helsinki city! In Winter World you can find snow attractions and activities for everyone: toboggan hill, kicksleds, fun skis, ice sculptures, snow igloos and much more. There is no age limit, children and adults of all possible ages are warmly welcome.
Everything is built indoors using ice and snow. Weather forecast of the day is always -3º Celsius, no wind or precipitation. Each guest is provided with the thermal clothing to keep you warm and cozy.
Winter World was built in 2010 indoors in a big hall. You can basically say it is located in a huge fridge!
A team of about 20 well trained and excited Alaskan huskies and professional musher come every year all the way from Rovaniemi city on Arctic Circle to Helsinki in the South of Finland to meet our guests and take them for a ride.
Here in Winter World you will feel the atmosphere of wintery Lapland. Lapland is an area above the Arctic Circle uniting Northern parts of Russian, Finland, Sweden and Norway. You won’t find Lapland on the map as a country but what makes Lapland so special is the original Sami people with their unique way of life, culture and traditions that define the whole area. Lapland is located about 800 km or 500 miles North from Helsinki and for those who do not have time to travel that far we’ve brought a piece of Lapland to Helsinki.
Weather forecast of the day is always -3 C (25 F). The beautiful decorations in Winter World thus stay there the whole year around and do not melt. The beautiful ice sculptures, tables and ice bar are designed and made by Kurtakko brothers, talented ice sculpturers from Lapland.
Lapland is so far away but so beautiful that we felt like everyone visiting Helsinki even for one day has to see and experience it. If you do not have time to go to Lapland – Lapland comes to you!
