Finally winter is here with all lovely outdoor activities. We have been longing to start the skating season. Nordic skating is a wonderful physical activity and also a real nature treat. Our skating premiere was in the north of Dalarna. The temperature was 17 degrees Celsius below zero. That made the surroundings wrapped in rime.
We were skating along the shoreline, on new black ice thick enough for skating and also followed meandering frozen brooks in the morass landscape. What a joy!
Suddenly the ice was filled with frost flowers. The thoughts went to the ballet The Swan Lake.
After two days’ skating on two lakes and eventually a night ride under the full moon on river Österdalälven we are eager to find new challenging skating events. Wilderness, silence and vast frozen waterlands are awaiting us. Let us guide you!
