Stockholm - Sport

The Swedes are very keen on all forms of outdoor activities and there are good facilities for a wide range of sports both in summer and winter. There are many sports' clubs, but they do not offer membership; all are open upon payment of a fee for the specific facility used.

Canoeing, sailing, swimming and golf are among the favorite sports in summer. In the winter, skiing, ice hockey, ice skating and motor and cycle racing on ice are popular sports. Skiing is good until April or May in the mountains of Norrland.

If you like biking you should buy a bike map that shows you all the trails and bike lanes in the city. Red signs with a bike on them indicate bike trails.
