Whether you’ve never skated before or you’re all quite the pros, why not get your own private guide so you can go on your very own 3 day Swedish Skating Adventure and play around on the ice everyday by yourselves?! We will skate on the best natural ice each day; in an area of approximately 350 km around Stockholm. Within that area there are 3 of Europe’s 5 largest lakes (Vänern, Vättern and Mälaren) and Stockholm’s Archipelago in the Baltic sea.

The Tour

Before you head off in search of adventure your experienced guide will brief you on the tour and the safety equipment first off, then once you are fitted with your nordic skates and equipment, you will head out to the best ice and the most beautiful surroundings that Stockholm has to offer.

Your guide will coach you on the best techniques for gliding easily over the ice, so as to learn/brush up on/perfect your nordic skating techniques before setting off on your adventure! You will skate all day with your sub group, but meet the rest of the group in the evenings at the hotels & guesthouses.

Depending on the weather, ice conditions and the skills of your group, you will cover anything between 20 and 80 km per day.

The days will be full of beautiful scenery, some of the best natural ice and skating conditions for nordic skating in the world, and lots of fun and exhileration as you skate alongside your friends. The evenings promise to be just as enjoyable as the days, with good food, fun chatter about the days activities and the chance to relax in the sauna. We stay in first class country style hotels and guesthouses that are high in quality, charm and character.

Good to Know

  • We start skating early every day so we can make the most of the daylight hours.
  • We always strive to find the best natural ice on the day of your tour. This means that, depending on the weather conditions, the location of our adventure and the skating conditions may vary. We could go to a small lake, to Lake Mälaren (the 5th largest lake in Europe) or to the Baltic Sea in Stockholm’s Archipelago – we won’t know until that day. We skate on all types of natural ice; from hard black ice, to ice with water or snow on top.  One thing we do know for sure, is it’ll be a great experience!
