Activity description

Join Explore Luleå for an unforgettable ice skating trip. Discover the central part of the city while gliding over the ice in a high speed. No previous experience needed!

Whether it is your first time, or if you are an experienced ice skater, discovering central Luleå on skates is incredible. Long distance ice skating is a truly magical experience. You will not only be able to experience northern Sweden in a new fun way but also enjoy a Swedish fika (something hot to drink and sweet to eat) or lunch (on request).  

Skating directly on the archipelago in Luleå is great. Long distance skates have been used for a long time by the Nordics to travel long distances. The activity itself pushes your body in new ways but also gives you a sense of freedom traveling through the open landscape. 


You meet the guide and the rest of the group in central Luleå. The activity starts off with a short safety and equipment briefing, allowing you to try on the best skates for you. After that, the ice skating adventure will start. After around 1,5 hrs of ice skating, you will make a stop for either lunch or Swedish fika depending on your chosen activity. To finish up, you will ice-skate some more to later arrive back in central Luleå after approximately three hours.
