Apres and Night life
After-Ski is actually not absent from Finnish winter holidays, but you have to realise, that in Finland things are done in the Finnish way. Dancing is the big passion among Finns, so every restaurant turns soon after 8 p.m. into a dance-hall or disco. You don't realize how short a night can be when you have never been dancing in Finland. Many Finns come in groups with their friends or comrades, without the spouse, who could well be enjoying him/herself in another ski-resort at the same time. Already in the afternoon there will be at some place so called monotanssit (ski-shoe dancing), where you quench your thirst with a Finnish lager and get acqainted with people.

What about Finnish food? Most Restaurants serve buffets, where you choose from a variety of dishes. Of course there is reindeer in different preparations, salmon, finnish berries, but also normal meat and fresh salads. But you won't miss pizza and pasta either. More about Finnish gastronomy
