Day I

Arrival at the airport. The guide will meet you and takes you directly towards the chosen skating area. Arriving to the hostel/hotel you check in and then depending on the time of arrival we might be able to do some skating. We start with a safety and security briefing and then hand out all equipment. In the evening we have dinner at the hostel/hotel.

Day II – III

We have breakfast and also time to prepare the lunch packages. Depending on the weather forecast and the ice situation on the lakes, we take off in the minibus towards the best possible skating area. At the lake we start by examining the ice before we get the gear on and step out on the ice. We skate in a row, the guide always first, checking the ice and looking out for weak spots. The speed and distance is adjusted to the group and the ice situation. Now and then we make short stops, to admire the beauty, chat for a while or just rest. During the day we make several stops when we go ashore to take something to eat or walk to another lake nearby. At the end of the day we return to the minibus and head back to the hotel/hostel. A nice sauna before the dinner is a pleasant experience. If the conditions are right we might go for another skating trip in moonlight late in the evening.

Day IV

After breakfast we head off for another day on ice, skating as long as possible depending on the scheduled departure times. On our way back to the airport we stop for a shower and change clothes and maybe for something to eat. The guide then drives you back to the airport.
