Experience the surreal sensation of floating on a freezing river on this private 1.5-hour ice-floating adventure in Varkaus. Slip into a thick, rubber waterproof suit, get instructions from an expert guide, and jump into the ice-cold waters of the River Pirtinvirta to float like a cork. With your suit keeping you warm and dry, drift gently downstream and enjoy the winter scenery and overwhelming sense of calm and relaxation. After your floating session, savor a complimentary hot drink on shore and perhaps buy a souvenir photo (own expense) or two.
