Sled running in Linköping

Not much compares to the old-fashioned fun of sledding! There are several centrally located slopes in Linköping well suited for sledding when weather permits.

At Valla Farm, adjacent to Friluftsmuseet Gamla Linköping the Valla slopes (Vallabackarna) are perfect for sledding. The natural sled run is very popular among both students and families - the perfect place to enjoy beautiful winter weather!

Another natural sled run is at Skarpan (Berga). Directions:  Skarpan is located along road Haningeleden, the entrance opposite Tinnerö Nature Reserve. When arriving from the Garnisonen roundabout, heading towards Vidingsjö, you can see the Skarpan slope on your left hand side by the entrance after the shop Coop Extra.

Close to Aktivitetsparken (activity park) in Ryd (Rydsvägen 324) is another slope well suited for sled running. Steep on one side and less steep on the other, the sled runs suits both big and small.
