Ice skating - An unreal feeling - A feeling like walking on water
The ice crystals crackle in their thousands. Knife-sharp blades make fresh cuts on a shiny, untouched surface. It's a special experience to skate in a frozen landscape. To feel the cold air on your face. To get your heart beating and to see your exhaled air forming beautiful clouds of steam. The long, winding and narrow lakes are framed by majestic pine forests. Along the lakes in the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve, vertical cliffs descend dramatically in narrow straits.
