The best conditions
Sigtuna Sport Uteliv has all the skating equipment you might need and a knowledgeable staff to help you. Here you can both rent and buy equipment such as skates, ice studs, inail, ski boots, backpack, etc. Not only are the staff knowledgeable about the equipment they provide, but can give you local tips on the best skating areas at the moment.
Make sure to book your equipment in advance so that you are not standing but when the ice is shiny on the bay.
Sigtuna Stad is Sweden’s epicentre for long-distance skating located at Mälaren, only 11 km from Arlanda, 37 km from Stockholm and 27 km from Uppsala. In addition to Mälaren, there are hundreds of other lakes in direct proximity where you can seek out the best ices. When you don’t skate, you can visit churches and ruins, castles and crofters, the smallest town hall and the largest airport – they’re all part of our history and they’re all worth a visit.
Please take a walk on Stora Gatan which is Sweden’s first pedestrian street. The pedestrian street was built in 970, i.e. the same year that the city of Sigtuna was founded. Today, a thousand years later, Sigtuna is still an international meeting place. Thanks in large part to its location and proximity to the outside world via Arlanda, Sweden’s largest airport. Here begins Sweden.
