Rent of ice skates in the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve in Sweden

Between firm ice and snow on the ice there is usually a golden period with perfect ice which makes fantastic good ice skating excursions possible. Normally this period of time occurs between mid December to mid January.

Ice skating - An unreal feeling - A feeling about walking on water

The ice crystals crackles in thousands. Knife sharp scratches do fresh cuts on a shiny untouched surface. Its a special experience to skate in a frozen landscape. To feel the fast breath. Get the heart to beat and see the exhaling air forming beautiful clouds of steam. The long winding and narrow lakes are framed by majestic pine forest. Along the lakes in the Nature Reserve Malingsbo/Kloten vertical cliffs descends dramatic in narrow straights.

Perfect location between two good ice skating trails

Nordic Discovery’s ice skating rental is located in the village Kloten between the two good ice skating lakes Långvattnet and Klotensjön. From the ice skating rental the walking distance is 75 meters to Klotensjön and 125 meters to Långvattnet.

Trackless Excursions

We are guests in the nature and we are required to show responsibility and care. Not to harm and not to destroy. To be in the Swedish nature is a right but it is also a duty to behave well. The only tracks should be the tracks from the skates.
