Winter Activities in Sweden

No reviews, be the first!

Sure, the days are shorter and the temperatures are sub-zero in Sweden during the winter, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things to enjoy in this Scandinavian country. From extreme sports to spotting the Northern Lights and relaxing inside, visiting Sweden in the winter does make for a fantastic — albeit somewhat chilly — holiday.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there are a myriad of wintertime excursions which let the sharp air pierce the lungs, while getting that adrenaline fix. With numerous frozen lakes dotting the landscape, many now feature activities like ice yachting, kite winging (similar to the summer time activity of kite surfing) and long-distance skating. If frozen lakes aren’t your thing, there are more traditional wintertime sports activities like skiing or ice climbing that attract adventurers.
