Continues to Stockholm


The Sörmlandsleden Trail continues all the way to the Stockholm underground

The walk from Trosa to Stockholm is 136 km, walking through sparsely populated forests and farmland all the way.
Sections 56-62 are close to the coast, passing Tullgarn Royal Palace. These sections continue to offer a gentle mix of forest and farmland, even though hilly in places, adding wide and beautiful views. When you reach section 62 you’ll hear the sound of long-distance trains rushing through tunnels and pass some busy roads, but otherwise there’s hardly anything that resembles a city until you reach the Stockholm suburb of Handen on section 5. Thereafter you continue through forests that are remarkably empty of people, but rich in wildlife; a national park with virgin forest and several nature reserves. It’s not until you’re nearing the underground station that the city presents itself – by way of a fairly rural golf course.
