Finnish Dancing With Your Ski Boots On

If you want to see something really unusual before leaving Finland, find out where the local ski town bar is and go there. You'll be in for a real surprise. Aren't you curious?

One thing you should know is that Finnish people love dancing and they love skiing. So after a long day of cross country skiing, many Finnish people head for the local bar and dance the afternoon away. It's like nothing you'll ever see: middle-aged Finns dressed in their cross-country skiwear and boots, polka dancing and twirling around on the dance floor to a live band.

Wallflowers: be prepared to be swept off your feet and flung onto the dancefloor.
