Description - What to expect

Meet your guide at the meeting point and after a briefing about the day's itinerary depart for an amazing Stockholm hiking by minibus out of Stockholm to pristine nature. The drive is about 30-40 minutes and will take you to a dense pine forest, alongside a lake where your actual hiking experience takes place. You will be hiking through unspoiled nature, in wildlife-rich virgin taiga forests, exploring the best sections of the famous Sörmansleden, passing next to awesome lakes, admiring incredible beaver dams and granite cliff formations.

Hike partly off-trail, leaving forest paths behind you to explore nature to its best. Pick wild berries and mushrooms on your way and learn from your guide on how to distinguish the edible ones. Reaching Stockholm county's highest point you stop to enjoy a delicious lunch before you continue exploring the amazing forest and scenery around you.

Most probably you will encounter abundant wildlife including the pygmy owl, black and green woodpeckers, birds of prey (mainly Falcon and Buzzard), and many other birds. Beavers are very active in the area and you are also going to spot Moose and Deer. For the last part of your Stockholm hiking, you will hike through an open green forest and past a lake before you arrive at the van. If weather permits you can take a refreshing dip in the lake.
