    Storuman skidstadion

    In Storuman you can go cross country skiing on Swedens longest lighted ski track, running between Storuman and Stensele. All 17 km of tracks are illuminated during nighttime (16.00 until at least 21.00).

    Of course you don't have to go on the 17 km long track, there are a number of cross connections which allows you to take just as long trip as you want to.

    You can also find other lighted ski tracks in the following villages around Storuman:

    Ankarsund, Barsele, Pauträsk, Forsmark, Grundfors, Gunnarn, Långsjöby, Slussfors, Strömsund and Åskilje.

    Some snowmobile action

    Jumping with the snowmobile

    If you like some more action you can try some more extreme snowmobile driving.

    But I wouldn't suggest that you shall go jumping with the snowmobile if you aren't very used to it, and maybe you should own your own snowmobile before are thinking you trying.

    Snowmobile skiing

    Snowboard towing after a snowmobile

    If you think normal skiing or snowboarding isn't exciting enough you could try snowmobile towing. (Called 'Tolka' in Swedish)

    When towing after a snowmobile you will get a line to hold on to and then it's just to stand up and try to follow. It's a bit like water skiing but actually much easier. You will be surprised how easy it is to stand even in higher speeds. After a while you might even want try doing some skills.

    Just remember to use quite wide skis, the wider the safer and easier. You may also use the snowboard, but that requires a bit more practise.

    My cousin with a good pike catch

    In many waters in Storuman you will find quite large pikes.

    Equipment: You will need a fishing license that you can buy on most places, just look for signs saying 'fiskekort'.
