The crisp, cold winter wind at your back propels you forward as your skates glide over the dark natural ice on one of Sweden's many frozen lakes (numbering almost 100,000!). During winter in the city of Ostersund, Lake Storsjon offers 17 kilometres of prepared tracks. With mountains as the backdrop and touring skates strapped to your feet, the experience amounts a Nordic skaters dream. Reward yourself to a crispy waffle with generous helping of cloudberry jam and whipped cream in the cabin at the end of the track, before heading back home.
