#ice hole swimming
Aah, ice hole swimming! Swimming in cold water adds to your sence of concentration and you sleep better. You might also engage yourself into a conversation on the sauna benches. Places to dip yourself into the cold water: Marina Cafe Laituri and Rampsi's saunas in Hamina.
The beach of Äijänniemi, commonly known as Äijäkkä, draws people in also in winter. Spectacular ocean views with an opportunity to get red cheeckbones! When the ice is thik enough, why not go ice skating!
Valkmusa National Park offers a sight that you may have not seen before, a frozer swamp! Ski or walk along the duckboards for example to Moronvuori day cottage.
