Ice on Stora Värtan

Gemütliche ice-skating tour on Stora Värtan. Small sight-seeing à la Shackleton included.

Good weather conditions, weekend, and the proximity to populated areas of Stockholm lured comparatively many people out on the ice. One of the less common sights was definitely a shipwreck that was completely enclosed by ice. However, it is unlikely that the ship had a similar history as Shackleton’s Endurance. The more comforting sight were the ice yachts, which were sailing at surprisingly high speed on Stora Värtan.
