Do you want to experience the thrill of speed or admire the majestic Lapland views from high up the hill – but don’t feel like skiing? In that case, tobogganing or snow tubing is for you! You can find the snow tubing tracks in the lift entrance area. Snow tubing is a great family activity.
The 1800 m long toboggan run has three tracks to choose from. The red track has a couple of turns of moderate difficulty and it takes you back to the ski centre. The blue track runs down to the Centre of Saariselkä. It’s more gently sloping, but you can still achieve decent speeds on it. The green track, which also takes you back to the ski centre, is the easiest and most suitable for small children.
You can take the chairlift near the Ski Shop to the top of the toboggan run. You will need a regular lift ticket for the lift. You can buy one or more lift trips. Once you get up, the top lift station has directions showing you which way to go.
You can use any of the toboggans available for free in the Saariselkä area, or you can bring your own toboggan sled. The Ski Shop also rents out slightly bigger toboggans, which are easier to control. We recommend wearing a helmet in the toboggan run. Ski goggles are a good idea if you want to avoid getting snow in your eyes.
The chairlift takes you to the top of the Kaunispää fell. You will also find a restaurant on the top of the fell.
