We are going to organize this exceptional skating event again in August 2021!

(Please note the updated event dates.) The annual FinLine skating event will take place for the 29th time in August 2021. The tradition started in 1992 with a weekend skate from Jyväskylä to Helsinki. Since then FinLine has become a one-week-event, with a different route every year.

While we had to cancel FinLine 2020 because of travel restrictions – FinLine is not a FinLine without any international skaters – we are hopeful that the COVID-19 situation will be better in the next summer and traveling is possible in practice.

We had great plans for the last summer and in order to optimize the work done by volunteers, why not to re-use our existing plans? So, after visiting the Swedish-speaking western coastline in 2019, FinLine 2021 will be skated in the wilderness of North Karelia, in the huge backwoods with bears and wolves split by the Russian border.
