The Southern route - 97 km

A long and wonderfully varied route that steals deep in among rarely visited lakes and bogs in big forests. After the locally popular fishing waters at Lake Nävsjön you'll reach the dramatic coast, where the hilly terrain will reward you with opportunities for swimming and wild views. You'll follow a Baltic Sea coast that is completely uninhabited for long stretches. Then the Sörmlandsleden trail turns north again and takes you through a beautiful small-scale agricultural landscape. The walk is edged with old mines, dams and other vestiges of the iron trade. One of the Europe's largest steel works is nearby, but never within view. During the walk, the trail forks, offering a variety of longer or shorter alternatives, so keep an eye on the map.
