You have got a itinerary and a map to help you find the way. To make it even easier your mobile phone is prepared with a GPS smartphone app that will help you find the right route. Your backpack is filled with coffee, water and lunch. Let the journey begin!
The hiking trail stretches on paths and gravel roads, along moors, through deep forests and open landscape. If you are lucky, you might make a curious fox’s acquaintance – or maybe a moose’s. You will soon find yourself hiking in a comfortable pace, where you can let go of the everyday life worries. Nature’s beauty, visual impressions, sounds and scents – everything helps you relax.
Slowly, a feeling of total presence and peace is emerging in the silence of nature. Should you need to cool down, there will be several opportunities to take a swim in any of the lakes you will pass. Then stop along the road for a rest and enjoy the lunch you brought along. The food usually tastes so much better in the open!
You walk along the grounds where Selma Lagerlöf found inspiration for many of her novel characters. A wonderful break on the journey will be a visit to her memorial farm Mårbacka where a guided tour awaits. Once at the overnight cabin it feels good to breathe out and rest your legs. A lovely dinner, perhaps with local hot-smoked salmon taste good after a full day’s hike. After a great night’s sleep, new adventures await!
