Now that the extremly cold days are over the weather is quite perfect for some truely Finnish Avantouinti. That means swimming in a frozen lake.
One perfect spot for this is Kuusijärvi in Vantaa. Warm up first either in one of the last smoke saunas you can find in the Helsinki area or in a normal electric sauna. When you are warm enough, grab your towel and flipflops (very important) and head to the ice hole for a dip.
Yes, the water is pretty cold but you will feel really good afterwards. Don't forget to warm up in the sauna afterwards again.
For more information on Kuusijärvi and how to get there check out the website.
Have a great Sunday and a wonderful winter!
