First day’s hike takes approximately four hours, and stretches through beautiful forests. Pass Lake Fölsjön and have your lunch on the shore of Lake Skacksjön. The journey continues, on paths as well as on forest roads. Right before Smedsby, the path changes to a gravel road, which takes you through beautiful countryside. On the shore of Lake Fryken, there are eleven barrows from later Bronze Age, well worth visiting at dusk. After the visit, you might be tempted to take a shower or a sauna at the cottage where you will spend the night.. There are options available for both getting a massage and taking a sauna. From the cottage, there is a short walk to the beautiful viewpoint. Here, you will have the opportunity to taste the traditional dish “kolbullar”, cooked over an open fire.
The hike continues north to Östra Ämtervik. You will eventually reach Prästbol, feel free to visit Östra Ämtervik’s church and Selma Lagerlöf’s family grave. Proceed along Selma Lagerlöf’s church road until you reach Södra Ås in about two hours. Here, you can visit Östra Ämtervik’s heritage centre, which has a bank museum as well as a horse cab museum. The last distance takes you from Södra Ås, up the small mountain of Åsberget with a beautiful view of the neighborhood. The road down to Mårbacka takes you along Back-Kajsa’s hiking trail. Back-Kajsa was Selma Lagerlöf’s nanny, and here you will pass what is left of her cottage. After approximately 1,5 hours you will reach Mårbacka and have a guided tour of the memorial.
At 4 pm you will be transferred back to Humletorp, Kil’s train station or to Karlstad Airport.
