Kick sledding

Kick sled, affectionately called ‘potkuri’, is a practical means of transportation that is an essential part of the winter everyday life for people living in rural areas in Finland – at least during snowy winters.

For most adults, the word “kelkka” brings to mind an image of a grandma swiftly moving along the road or an ice fisherman gliding on the ice. At Iloranta, you can kick along the ice of Iso-Roine or on the rural roads nearby.

Kick sledding is a hobby suitable for everyone and doesn’t require special fitness or previous experience. Its popularity is based on its simplicity and fun.
