Pulk Sleds

Have an itty-bitty (or two) that wants to join in the xc ski fun? Pulk sleds allow parents to pull children behind as they ski. Equipped with a cushioned waist band and two long aluminum poles, pulk sleds are just the ticket for a successful family outing. Our pulk sleds are available with single or double seats and are enclosed with a weatherproof flexible plastic cover to protect wee ones from wind and snow. Bring along a special blankie. As parents ski, the gentle swaying motion quickly puts most little ones into dreamland! We strongly advise placing advance reservations to ensure availability.

Napa Kiikku

Line up for some Finnish fun! Napa Kiikku (translation: “pole swing”) is an incredibly popular ice sled ride for children, unique to Lapland Lake! As ice forms in the early season, we freeze a pole vertically in the center of the pond. An extension pole is attached at an angle, and to the end of this pole a sled is attached. A child lies or sits on the sled while one of Lapland Lake’s energetic employees pushes the pole in circles. The centrifugal force makes kids feel like they’re flying! Check out the picture! Napa Kiikku runs weekends and holidays 3:00 – 4:00pm (ice conditions permitting) and is free of charge with purchase of facility use pass (ages 6+) and to children 5 and under! This should not be missed!

Snow Tubing

Another popular activity for Lapland Lake’s kids! Two junior tubing hills to suit kids of all ages. Bring your own tubes or rent them from us. One hill is lighted until 9pm for our overnight guests’ use. Please note: our tubing hills are non-lift operated, ride down-carry back up for plenty of old-fashioned fun! Use of tubing hills is included with purchase of facility use pass. (Tubing hills are open as conditions permit.)


Have a blast on a kick-sled! Imagine a wooden seat atop two long, metal runners. Now imagine sitting on the seat with your feet propped on a bar in front of you while your kick-sled partner pushes from behind (one foot on a runner, the other equipped with a crampon “kicking” to propel the sled forward). This is some incredibly fast fun! Kick-sleds are used on Woods Lake when there is exposed ice. Great fun for any kid or any adult who wants to be a kid!


Get off the snow and onto the ice for a fun alternative outdoor activity!Our ice-skating pond is a great spot for ice-skating fun and games! We rent junior (the smallest offer double blades for stability) and adult figure and hockey skates. Our pond is lighted until 9pm nightly for our overnight guests. Use of ice-skating pond is included with purchase of facility use pass. (Ice skating is available as conditions permit.)


Kyykka is a competitive group game played on ice which is great fun for kids and adults! A player’s large bat-like stick is tossed at a row of cylindrical pieces of wood called kyykkas which are arranged in front of a square. Two teams throw their “bats” at their opponents’ kyykkas to try to knock them away from the squares. When one side has successfully knocked the kyykkas out of their opponent’s square, the kyykkas are replaced and the game continues. Addicting fun!
