ice skating



Pattinaggio/Ice skating

In common with Brunnsviken and Norrviken, this is a good (=relatively safe) choice for beginners and those ice skating alone. Geographically, Edsviken is the middle one of these three lakes. When the entire lakes are frozen, it is possible to do all three, as well as Vallentunasjön, walking between them. The skating distance will then be approx 30 km. Brunnsviken is within walking distance of the city.

Most websites with ice reports require registration, but on, you find a free one for this lake...if you understand Swedish (but that is a requirement for all other sites, as well).

There are two tracks that are regularly cleared from snow on Edsviken. In this short tour, I combined the two and skated around twice. (Thus, each lap of my tour is 12.8 km). Today, the lake was frozen between the two tracks - it was possible to skate slowly and carefully between them, but the ice was quite rough there.

Approach by public transport from Stockholm city: metro red line to Bergshamra, change to bus 503, get off at "Ulriksdals wärdshus". Travelling time approx 20 min. (Alternatively, red line to Danderyds sjukhus and a 400m walk to enter the lake from the other side. Travelling time approx 15 min).

Parking available along the alley (see photo). The parking lot is for restaurant guests.

NB The altimeter values must be incorrect. Apart from one fall when a skate came undone, there were no changes in altitude.
