Tahko’s public skating rink is located in the downtown sports park and is completely free.
Measuring 30 x 50 meters, the rink is open between 6 am and 10 pm, giving you plenty of time to practice your pirouettes. There are no changing rooms, but you’ll find sheltered benches making it easy to change into your skates.
Ice skating is also available at the Tahko Tours Holiday Village and Nilsiä, where you’ll discover a small, well-lit skating rink and a separate hockey rink.
If you dream of skating on natural ice, you cannot miss a day trip to Kuopio, to experience the magic of Kallavesi lake.
Departing from the port of Kuopio, this magnificent skating rink – home to the Finland Ice Marathon – is one of the most popular places to visit in Kuopio over winter. Equipment hire is available at the skate rental shop, and you can also enjoy warm drinks at the goregrous boat café.
