Hiking in the forest

 

Walks in oak landscapes and leafy woods. Three days hiking in the big forest of Kolmården. We leave civilisation and stay out in the forest during the whole trip. Sleeping in shelters (or tents), cooking on portable stoves. All we need must be carried; still we travel light, bringing just the essential. We will be walking narrow paths (even off the tracks), with rests at nice small lakes or close to the Baltic Sea.

Day I

If arriving in the afternoon/evening: Arrival to Skavsta airport (Stockholm south) with RyanAir. Transport on your own to Nyköping with local bus. Accommodation at Hostel. Nyköping is a nice little town with some good restaurants.

Day II

Pick up at the airport for those who manage to get an early morning flight. Breakfast at the hostel. Staff from Naturguiden meets the group at the hostel and welcome them after breakfast at 08.30. Together the guide and the group go through the program and activities. The food for three days and the all necessary equipment are handed out by the guide and should be packed together with your personal stuff in your rucksack. Any other baggage will be taken care of by the guide.

When everyone is ready we head for the bus that brings us to the forest (approx 20 minutes). We start our walk through the forest on small, winding roads and woodland paths. Brooks and beautiful meadows are passed as we walk through densely wooded nature. For lunch we stop at a small lake and eat a tasty meal that gives us plenty of energy to continue our walk. Early in the evening we arrive at our lake-side camp. The guide gives instructions about how to build the shelter for the night and gives a hand if needed as you build it. Later on we light a fire and start preparing the dinner. When it starts getting dark we find our way to our sleeping bags and a good night`s sleep.

Day III

We have breakfast and then a new day hiking, heading towards the Baltic Sea. At lunchtime we reach the shoreline. Maybe people swim before lunch. After a nice break we continue along the cost towards the evening camp site. We stop some times looking for wild animals or to find blueberries or other edible plants. The evening we spend around the camp fire, preparing our dinner and talk about the experiences of the day.

Day IV

After a healthy breakfast early we start back towards civilization. Around ten o’clock we reach the main road and the bus that will bring us back to Nyköping and Skavsta; you get your belongings and can take a shower before going to the airport. Depending on your flight you can choose to stay in Nyköping for a while or over night.
