Storsjön / Isön-Norderön

Storsjön is the fifth largest lake in Sweden. Each year during winter time from January to April ice roads replace the summer ferry services. There are 2 ice roads in the lake: Isön-Norderön (1,5km long) and Norderön-Verkön (2,6km long). The ice road over the lake has some restrictions: weight restriction of 2–4 t

(2.0–3.9 long tons; 2.2–4.4 short tons); speed limit of 30 km/h (19 mph); prohibition against stopping or parking on the ice; minimum distance of 50 m (160 ft) between vehicles and restrictions for axle, bogie and gross weight. The thickness of the ice is measured every day to make sure the ice is strong and safe for the cars to travel on. In some places you can save up to 2 hours on your travel time by using the ice road.
