Do what you never thought you would be doing in your lifetime! Swim in an icy lake in the north of Finland in the middle of winter!

Brace yourselves as we are about to introduce you to the craziest adventure we could think of - winter ice floating! We will dress you up in special rescue floating suits made of light, waterproof material, that will keep you warm and dry, so you can spend as much time in the water as you like.

However, you will be tempted to get out as we'll set up an open fire, enjoy some snacks and drinks and warm up our cozy cottage for you. This is a small, private tour so you can enjoy time with friends, away from the crowds.

We understand that our guests are coming in different shapes and sizes, and we want to ensure that we provide you with the best possible service. We kindly request that if you do not fit the standard size or weight, you contact us for further details.

- How do i pay for a tour with Nordic Adventures?


You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!


- Do i have to book in advance?


There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.

This is a nice question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated in the voucher. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide. Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.


- How to dress right and feel comfortable in Winter?


1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.

2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.

3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.

4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up

Nordic Adventures is happy to tell you where you can rent costumes if there is such a need!


- Do you provide transportation to your adventures?


Most of our tours (please see specifications under each tour) include transfers from accommodation in Rovaniemi city area. It is included in the adventure price.

The pick up is usually 5-20 min before the start of the safari (time in your voucher). Transportation back is immediately after the end of the safari.

We try to provide exact pickup time one day before the start of the tour by email or text message/whats-app, which is why it is important that you provide your valid email and phone number when booking a tour.

The most fun and memorable experience of our Finland trip

March 12, 2023


This turned out to be the most fun and memorable experience of our Finland trip. This “floating in the ice water” was my wife’s idea, I rolled my eyes and said yes thinking it might be pretty boring. We opted for the day-time trip in January, there were 3 of us and we had the whole experience to ourselves. We were collected from our resort then driven to a private site and a little frozen over lake. In the cottage we were zipped into our arctic survival suits (big baggy onesies that made us look like “My Blobbie” or Michelin-man, whichever reference you might get). We were then taken to a big hole in the ice by a little jetty and could climb in the water. What you do then is entirely up to you. you can float on your back and calmly enjoy the surroundings.. or you can also hoist yourself vertical, paddle about, break off surrounding ice and even climb up on the frozen lake ice and muck about, climbing in and out of the water as you choose. We broke off a load of ice and hauled the pieces on to the lake to make ice-art. We were extremely lucky to have bright blue skies and this made everything look amazingly beautiful. I think it was about -15c at the time, but you stay warm enough. I read some reviews about people on ice float trips getting a little water inside their suit. I think it’s entirely a factor of how careful you are and what you do. Two of us did not get wet at all. I got absolutely soaked.. I was moving about getting up and back from the ice, front crawl plus floating.. I regularly felt water trickle in my neck area. I was having so much fun I didn’t care at all. If you are prone to being a bit splashy and adventurous then bring a change of clothes and wrap your phone in a zip lock bag. Our guide/host/driver was very friendly and we had a good chat in the car and he kindly took some great phone video footage of us. We had a GREAT time.

Nous avons passé une excellente après-midi en petit comité grâce à Alex et Tanja ! Nous parlons et rigolons encore de cette activité ice-floating et du petit goûter avec boisson chaude qui a suivi. Nous recommandons Nordic Adventures à tous ceux qui souhaitent soutenir les petites compagnies et fuir les gros groupes. Alex et Tanja étaient attentionnés et chaleureux, on voit qu'ils aiment ce qu'ils font ! ❤

We did Ice floating with Nordic Adventures. Alex and his team are very honest and passionate people living their dream and making our time as pleasant as possible. Will definitely get back to them when we are in Rovaniemi and truly recommend them.

Ice floating - Fabulous Experience

January 26, 2020


If you want a really personal Finnish experience then we highly recommend these guys.
A lovely glimpse into Finnish culture coupled with an amazing albeit bizarre experience of ice floating.
Completed with a warming fire in a homily environment, with piping hot berry juice and freshly baked ginger cookies.
Amazing views over their private lake. Survival suits great quality and keep you warm.
Danielle was a fabulous host. Don’t miss this experience.

Fantastic floating experience by wonderful local hosts


Alex and his partner were wonderful hosts. The lake/ice floating was a cool experience. The entire experience had a very local feel as we were hosted at their lakeside house, given hot Berry juice by a wood fire and sat and spoke about Finnish life for a long time. They ensured you had a true Finnish experience. Highly recommend this local family group
