About
Bob like a cork on the Pirtinvirta River in Finland on this private 1.5-hour floating experience in Varkaus. Climb into your warm, dry wetsuit and listen as a private guide offers advice to help you make the most of your experience. Then, leap into the freezing waters of the Pirtinvirta River and float downstream. Admire fine views over the winter scenery from your vantage point on the water and enjoy the feeling of weightlessness. Then, conclude your tour with a hot drink and perhaps buy a souvenir photo (own expense).

Really enjoyed ice floating
Feb 2020
Ice floating was so much fun. Arto was really helpful and experienced and showed us what to do. It was such an unusual experience, and would definitely recommend. Arto also showed us around Varkaus afterwards, which was great, and he pointed out a lovely cafe we wouldn't have otherwise found.

Ice fishing & ice floting with Arto
For our group of 11 guys Arto gave us an introduction on ice fishing, which was well-organized and really rewarding. Thanks to his flexibility he organized a ice floating tour for us just the day afterward - We just had the maximum of fun!
