Savurafla Kotisaari -Island Restaurant like in the good old days

Kotisaari Island is deep in the history of Rovaniemi, the Capital of Lapland. Rovaniemi was a legendary lumberjack town, and the Ounasjoki and Kemijoki rivers were used as floating channels for the log industry from the late 1800 century until end of 1980. In the good old days the Kotisaari Island was a traditional stronghold of the Lumberjacks in Kemijoki river, just a boat ride away from the city centre.

Now the old boathouse in Kotisaari Island has been renovated to a Savurafla Kotisaari -Island Restaurant, with a high respect for BBQ traditions, and adding a Lappish twist, the Island Restaurant opens for seatings on 1st of July 2022.

WARNING! THIN ICE! Walking on the frozen river in the town centre of Rovaniemi is life-threatening. The City of Rovaniemi and the Lapland Rescue Department warn people about thin ice on the river, especially in the town centre of Rovaniemi. 

People have been observed standing on the frozen Kemijoki River at the city centre area, although the ice cover is very thin, so walking on the frozen river can easily be fatal. 

“If you see someone on the frozen river, they must be immediately instructed to head for land”, states Riku Mäenpää, Safety Instructor at the Lapland Rescue Department.

The ice may also be very weak in places outside the town centre, as there have been no prolonged periods of below-freezing temperatures.

The City began setting up fences which have warning signs about thin ice written in many different languages. Fencing will also be installed close to the Konttinen Summer Theatre to prevent people from sledging down onto the thin ice of the river.

The safari companies will start building a snow barrier from Hotel Pohjanhovi upstream past the Lumberjack Candle Bridge. The purpose of the snow barrier is to prevent people from riding snowmobiles too close to the shore. 

Stay safe while visiting Rovaniemi!
