Long distance skating

Ice skating

Norduppland offers good conditions for successful trips on long-distance skates when winter and the cold visit.

Glide forward over mirror-shiny ice with radiant winter sun and a clear blue sky with quiet, almost silent skerries.

It is important that someone in the group has the right knowledge about long-distance skating. Knowledge of the ice, how the weather affects the ice, and what to do if someone is fussing.

If you are a beginner, we recommend that you contact Friluftsfrämjandet and take an introductory course and learn the basics.

Tips for a successful trip

* Ice skate -always in company with someone.

* Ice studs

* Lifeline

* Ispik

* Whistle

* Backpack with waist strap (and preferably crotch strap)

* An extra change of clothes (a warm jacket is especially nice to wear during the coffee break).

* Lunch bag

* Skridsko.net is the Sweden's common information center when it comes to ice. Well worth a visit before you go out.

Take care!
