Hello ! I plan to be in Helsinki on 24+25+26 december with my family. I would love to do cross-country ski (obviously as close as possible from Helsinki centre because we have no car). I have heard of several places but I don't have skis therefore I need to rent them. Do you know where I can rent skis and ski nearby ?
We are no champions and it's really for the fun of it. Any simple circuit will do fine...

Hello! The best place to go cross-country skiing is in Paloheinä. You can rent skis here as well (see more info here in English https://www.suomenlatu.fi/en/suomen-latu-ski-service.html). Bus 66K goes from the railwaystation to Paloheinä (takes about 40 minutes). Check the timetables on www.reittiopas.fi (in English), since it's a holiday. Enjoy your stay!
