All our hikes either follow the Sörmlandsleden or established hiking paths within, for example, nature reserves. We have selected the best, conveniently located, stretches that are varied, passing lakes, forest, open countryside and coastal regions.
The Sörmlandsleden or Sörmland Trail is more than 1,000km long and is the longest hiking trail in all of Sweden. It winds its way through the length and breadth of Sörmland taking in the absolute best of its enviable nature; wilderness, sparkling lakes, forests, hilltop views as well as historical monuments. The paths are well maintained and you are lead by the well-recognised Sörmlandsleden posts and orange marking – a very familiar sight to those having hiked a number of stretches.
Sörmland county lies just to the south of Stockholm and is perfectly suited for those of you looking to escape the buzz of the city and experience the peace and tranquility of Sweden’s much admired countryside.
Other regions we explore by foot are the Stockholm archipelago where we follow a mix of established hiking paths and quiet country lanes - some islands only have a handful of cars, and most have none!
The hiking is not considered challenging although it is an undulating landscape with many shorter hills to climb and some stretches may be marshy if there have been recent rains but is within most people’s ability. Some of the ground underfoot may be rocky and some scrambling may be required.
