Tobogganing in Finnish Lapland
Finnish Lapland, Finland
Head to the nearby slopes and whizz your way down at breakneck speed- luckily you have soft snow to cushion you if you fall!
A toboggan differs from most sleds or sleighs in that it has no runners or skis (or only low ones) on the underside. The bottom of a toboggan rides directly on the snow.
The traditional toboggan is made of bound, parallel wood slats although modern toboggans can also be made of aluminum or plastic. In Finnish Lapland there are slopes dedicated to tobogganing so you do not need to worry about getting in the way of any hikers or snowmobiles.
