We have received a light coating of snow over the past few days and it doesn't look likely to melt for awhile. This is actually unusually early for snowy weather. It is still a couple of weeks before Christmas decorations and lights are officialy revealed (November 19th).
Winters in Stockholm are unpredictable. Some winters are filled with snow while others barely see a snowflake. This unpredictability is also the reason you won't find dog/horse drawn sleds and other activities that need guaranteed snow for economic viability. I do get requests every year for this! That being said, there are plenty of opportunities to ski and ice skate in and around Stockholm... but more on that in a later post when the season has really started.
In the meantime, if you are coming to Stockholm this winter season, make sure you check weather websites a few days ahead of your trip. This can be immensely helpful when planning on what to pack and what to do. Click here for a good website I use often. I will be back in a couple of days with a guide for Christmas Markets in Stockholm this season.
