Ounasvaara is a family ski resort close by the city of Rovaniemi at the Arctic Circle. Besides the downhill skiing slopes there are also several maintained cross-country skiing tracks in the area. Downhill skiing is relaxed, and there are plenty of alternatives including horse and reindeer-drawn sleigh rides. The Sky Hotel is located at the top of the lifts.
In the summer time you can enjoy the speed by summer-tobogganing or by down-hill biking. From the top of Ounasvaara hill there is a beautiful landscape to be seen throughout the year.
