A Day On The Ice - Ice Skating Adventure
Duration: 8 hours Medium
Why we love this tour
Experience a day full of adventure on a natural ice around Stockholm!

- Ice skate either on a small lake, Lake Mälaren (the fifth-largest lake in Europe) or the Baltic Sea in Stockholm’s Archipelago
- Spend the day surrounded by breathtaking scenery
- Knowledgeable and experienced English-speaking guides
Before taking you to the best ice in the Stockholm's breathtaking natural surroundings, your knowledgeable guide informs you on the excursion and safety equipment. This trip has a faster pace and emphasizes ice skating for a long distance. Depending on the weather and ice conditions, your group may be able to cover up to 70 kilometers in a single day (on this tour we usually cover around 20 – 70 km, depending on the weather conditions and the pace of the group)
Your guide will gladly provide advice and coaching to help you improve your ice skating skills so that you may progress as a Nordic skater and feel accomplished throughout the day.
The tour lasts approximately 8–9 hours, with approximately 6–7 hours of skating on natural ice in the Stockholm archipelago or on one of Stockholm's large lakes. During the journey, you'll stop for a well-deserved picnic lunch somewhere sheltered and scenic. There's an open fire, as well as our traditional outdoor meal of grilled hotdogs and hot beverages. Hopefully, you'll have some fun bantering and laughing with your new skating mates as well! After lunch, there will be additional time to enjoy the ice with renewed vigor before returning to the city.
The number one priority is to make sure our tours are as safe as possible by choosing the safest and best ice for the day. To ensure this, we provide our customers with very experienced guides and all necessary safety equipment. We will make sure that all gear is put on properly and that you understand how to use it before heading out on your tour.
