Top of the line this vinter - skating on Luleås iceway from the north port to the south port, sunshine from a blue sky and after that - waffles with cream and jam.

Crazy people walking on the Sea! So, we took the plunge and ventured out with the crazies, pushing prams and eating picnics on the frozen sea! A beautiful walk on the ice around the island lulea is situated on. Beautiful scenery and beautiful sunshine.

My husband and I use to skate out to the island "Gråsjälören" and we just love it! The ice is smooth and easy to skate on, and at the Island is it well arranged with fire-places and you can easily barbecue and have a nice time in the sun. Worth a visit!

Near to Lulea center, there are a few walking roads on the ice sea. It is great experience to walk on ice of sea on sunny day. I just walk near to small island and come back. I guess that it is more than one kilometer. It is quite good with fresh air but I feel a little chilly on... More

In wintertime, when the ferry is blocked by the ice, the authorities open a iceroad over the river. To Southerners very strange and dito exciting and interesting. Also a "must do"!

They're much safer for poor skaters, anyway, though very tricky to steer! Still, you have to just go out a bit on the isbana, and if... More

Right, this is an absolute must-do if you're in Luleå! Everything you need to know... 1. The local council provide free kick-sleds on racks at most points you can enter the ice (lots available during the week, maybe trickier to nab at the weekends). 2. You can rent ice skates (couldn't find info. on this anywhere before we went) at... More

This was so much fun. We had watched the locals going up and down on thier skates, so we thought we would give it a try. So as not to break any bones we hired skates and a kick, like a Zimmer frame but on ski blades. It was fantastic, supporting you as we skated round. An amazing expierence on... More
