  The swimming pool at the ski jumping hills
by sabsi

We actually came to Lahti to go swimming in the pool right under the biggest ski jumping hill. Unfortunately the weather was terrible the day we were here - 10°C in August! We decided to be chickens and leave the swimming gear in our bags. The poor school kids were still swimming though. But then again the Finns like to swim in frozen lakes so where's the problem....

Equipment: Your best fur swim suit. Maybe it'll help not getting cold ;)

Address: Urheilukeskus (Sports centre)
Directions: The swimming pool is right under the biggest (K120) hill. In winter you can't see it. It's basically located where the jumpers land.
Theme: Beach Activities
