The largest smoke sauna in the world is located here and for those who want to try ice swimming, the helpful staff will cut a hole in the ice on the river for you.
This is really a winter playground and there is so much to do. There are husky and reindeer safaris and an exhilarating night reindeer sleigh ride. There is the chance to go snowmobiling and cross country skis can be rented.
