Ice Skating (Sweden)

The unique experience of skating on frozen lakes and archipelago seas on a trip skating adventure on natural ice

Ice skating on natural ice - on frozen lakes and archipelago seas - is a wonderful experience far removed from skating on your local rink. The sense of freedom and space is extraordinary - you are literally walking on water!

Sweden is one of the very few places that can offer suitable conditions for natural ice skating - the winter climate needs to be cold enough for good ice formation but with little snowfall. The central and southern parts of Sweden are therefore wonderful areas for ice skating - as there is typically lower snowfall in these areas than further north, conditions can often be mirror-smooth and snow-free, offering mile upon mile of uninterrupted skating joy!

Led by experienced local guides, you will head out to discover some of the best skating the region has to offer. As ice conditions vary constantly, the exact locations of the skating for a particular tour are flexible to take advantage of the best conditions at the time.

Tours are offered for participants of varying levels of experience, from those who have done some basic skating before on ice rinks or roller blades looking to discover the adventure of natural ice skating, to those with experience of trip skating and able to cover longer distances - we have many guests returning to us to skate year after year, so there's plenty of opportunity to develop your skills!

"Natural ice skating is certainly a winter holiday with a difference. Trip skating has been popular with the locals for years but is only now gaining wider recognition as a great winter adventure activity!" Bob from the Nature Travels team
