Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at 10am in Varkaus, then climb into your warm, dry, waterproof wetsuit to begin your 1.5-hour tour.

Following a safety briefing, head to the banks of the Pirtinvirta River and jump into the icy waters. Wrapped up completely against the freezing water, float like a cork along the river and enjoy panoramic views over the Finnish countryside.

Feel completely relaxed as you drift downstream, then come out of the water for a refreshing hot drink to conclude your ice-floating experience. Perhaps buy a souvenir photo of your trip (own expense).
