Ice skating is fun! In the Jönköping area, you can go ice skating in several locations. Here, there is everything from professional ice venues to beautiful lakes.
It does not happen every year, but some years, lake Vättern freezes to ice. Then, you can go ice skating on natural ice in central Jönköping and in Huskvarna. Around the municipality, there are several lakes that often freezes to ice during the winter so that you can be able to go ice skating on them. To hear the ice sing while you are skimming over it is a fantastic experience of nature, but always make sure to put safety first. Control the thickness of the ice, don’t ever be alone on the ice and bring your ice claws.
Locations with mechanically frozen ice give a better guaranty for ice skating and the ice tends to get smoother and easier to go ice skating on. In the following locations, you can find artificial ice:
