Stockholm Hiking Off-Trail

Stockholm Hiking trip, one day

We will spend the day in the surroundings of Stockholm hiking through unspoiled nature.  We might just visit the oldest, wildlife rich forest of Sweden’s southern half, or hike past magnificent viewpoints in the archipelago. We might even take you to the best sections of the famous Sörmansleden. No person is the same, and neither are hikes. That is why you decide! Tell your guide what you’d like to see, or ask for his/her personal favorite. There truly is plenty of beautiful nature and hiking in Stockholm ‘s area.

 Hiking Stockholm: what to see?

Environment: enchanting forest, scenic lakes, beaver dams, old mountain chains, viewpoints, granite cliffs, etc. We will partly be hiking off-trail, leaving the paths behind and really exploring nature. Plenty of edible wild berries and mushrooms are to be found as well.
Often encountered wildlife: Especially rich in bird life. Commonly seen birds of interest are the pygmy owl, black woodpecker, green woodpecker, three-toed woodpecker, birds of prey (mainly Falcon and Buzzard) and many other birds. Capercaillie is also present in large numbers. Beavers are very active many areas as well. Moose and deer are also in the area, and are sometimes seen on hiking trips! Tracks of moose, deer and wild boar are basically always spotted. Fox and badger are also present.

 Day program

This is an example tour. Your guide customizes the day according to the weather, fitness and interest of the group.
Meet your guide and fellow travelers at the meeting point. Here you’ll get information about the hiking trip’s program. A 30 minute drive will take you away from the city and into the nature reserve. Here you’ll learn about the area’s geological history, from mountain range to archipelago, animals that thrive there and more. The hike starts off at an easy accessible path. We use the park’s main roads to get from one interesting point to another where we will go off -track into nature. This way we can cover a lot more of the park’s area and see all the best things, while still enjoying a ‘wild sensation’. The hike starts with mystical virgin forest. We’ll also visit beaver dams, (and maybe even see a beaver!) viewpoints, several beautiful lakes, walk over solid granite plateau’s and enjoy a campfire lunch as well. On the way you’ll see signs of wildlife, learn more about Sweden and Swedish nature, and perhaps pick some berries too! We finish the hike entering a tiny settlement where people already have been living from the iron age. Satisfied with a fun, adventurous and educative day we make our way home.
