Creatures of the lake - ice sculpture park - Visit Tampere

Creatures of the lake – ice sculpture park

Cultural house Laikku, together with Suomen Jouluvalo Ltd, create a realm of ice sculptures right to the centre of Tampere. The Laikku park will house an ice sculpture tent, where people can get astonished by the mystical world full of ice, snow and light, created by ten ice sculptors. 

The tent turns into a hidden realm of the mystical, magical creatures of the lake Näsijärvi. The trail leads the visitors from one sculpture to another, until the trail ends by the biggest and most powerful of the creatures, who is ready to pose for a photo with you as a memento of this unique visit to the watery magic realm. 

Ice sculptors:
Antti Pedrozo, Andrius Petkus, Marika Wallden, Timo Koivisto, Eeva Karhu, Pasi Ahokas, Riitta Matikainen, Tarja Matikainen and Kari Manninen.
