Tahko is a perfect holiday destination for families with kids! There is plenty to do from morning till night – we promise you won’t get bored! On the slopes of Tahko, the children’s lift and slope are located next to the main lifts and slope restaurant Tiroli. Children under 7 wearing a helmet have free admittance to all lift when accompanied by a parent! The kids’ ski school Werneri offers a fun way to learn skiing for children over four – and naturally it is also possible to have private skiing lesson.
There is also plenty of snow fun in the kids’ hill on the lower part of Special hill, where the children can ride their sleds and toboggans. The other, smaller sledding hill is located next to the children’s downhill skiing slope. If you prefer a warmer ride, you will enjoy a ride on a sleigh pulled by a horse, where you can just sit back and relax under warm blankets.
Those interested in horses can also ride them. The Tahko Arena riding centre has riding lessons every day, both for the beginners and the more advanced riders. In addition, there is pony riding for children every day from 12 noon to 1pm. In Tahko Areena you can also admire the beautiful Icelandic horses, which take groups trekking right in the middle of snowy nature!
