It’s 9am, it’s freezing and still quite dark outside but you’re motivated to go try on ice skating on a frozen lake in the outskirts of Stockholm!
You will meet your guide and his vehicle in the center of Stockholm, not far from the central station. He will give you a pair of Nordic Ice Skate, a pair of shoes, a backpack and waterproof bag for your compulsory spare clothing. Do not forget to dress properly for the physical activity that is ice skating, meaning several layers (t-shirt wool or synthetic, fleece or wool sweater (avoid cotton), and waterproof jacket / Windbreaker), as well as warm hat and gloves.
After a trip of up to 50 minutes to find ice and a safety brief, you can finally go on the ice. The first few moments can be quite scary, especially if the ice is transparent and cracks under your weight. But no worries, this is normal 🙂 After a few minutes and you feel comfortable on your skates, we will start the tour around the lake at your own pace. You will skate along the rocks along the lake, villas and smoking saunas, beautiful northern forests … the dream I tell you!!
We will stop for a tea / coffee and cookie pose. A little later we will stop again by the lake in the forest, light a wood fire that will keep us warm and enjoy a good organic meal.
As the sun goes down at around 3 pm during the winter months, we will skate until then. And you will see, that will be enough, the practice of ice skating is quite physical!
You will be back in downtown Stockholm around 16h.
