A visit to Verkö Castle
Visit Verkö Island and the beautiful Verkö Castle, dating back to the 19th century, out in the Jämtland archipelago. In the beginning of March, or as soon as the ice on Lake Storsjön is strong enough Verkö Castle opens for the winter season.
The 40-minute-long journey from Vinterparken out to Verkö Island is an adventure and offers a great view over lake Storsjön and the surrounding mountains. In the summer you can go by boat to the island and in the winter you will get there with the Ice Express – two specially built sledges pulled by snow scooters or a 4-wheel drive. On arrival you can enjoy delicious food and also spend the night.
Open Saturdays to the public, groups can pre-book Mon-Sun all winter
Remember that there are always weather, temperature and ice conditions to consider before you make your trip out.
