In the winter, you can use our Outdoor Exercise Map to track the current locations and conditions of municipally maintained cross-country ski trails. The same map also shows the city’s skating rinks and up-to-date assessments of the condition of the ice. The map allows you to filter the trails and rinks based on their condition, name (alphabetical order) and proximity. 

In the summer, you can use the map service to find information on swimming areas and beaches in the Helsinki region. The map shows daily water temperatures, lifeguard hours and the blue-green algae situation at the beaches that are listed
