Enjoying the Snow

Not only does Helsinki and the Fin's cope with snow, they still seem to have the ability and energy to enjoy it. Almost as though the novelty has not warn off; snowmen are built; locals dress in suitable bright-coloured outfits to go out into the sub-zero but enjoyable winter city scape.

Ice-hockey is a major winter sport and the public outdoor rinks are the first to be cleared of any fresh snow. The ice provides a platform for ice-fishing and with the Baltic Sea frozen solid it is possible to walk out to the near-by island - although not recommended for the faint hearted!
