3-Day Hike in the Swedish Wilderness
Duration: 3 days 1 hour Medium
Why we love this tour
You'll connect with nature on this unique adventure in the middle of wild Swedish forests!
- Beautiful and peaceful nature far from the civilization
- Fire-cooked food
- Swimming in the fresh-water lakes
- Exploring the wilderness off the paths
The Swedish forests are so vast that you barely ever see another soul. In no time, a resourceful, gorgeous, and tranquil forest soothes, restores, and energizes you!
A large portion of the country is covered with wilderness and freshwater lakes. As a result, you'll have a better chance of seeing nordic animals like elks, owls, beavers, deers, and others. Due to the lack of urban distractions, hiking in Sweden allows you to experience the wilderness with more clarity, allowing you to notice smells and distinct noises.
We guarantee that your hiking adventure will be one of the most unforgettable moments of your life!
This three-day journey takes you into the wilderness, through vast woods, and around crystal-clear lakes. We will be self-sufficient for the entire trip, which will include camping in the forest and cooking our meals over a wood fire that we will create together. We'll be moving forward as a group, and everyone should contribute to the hike's outcome. Each of you must bring your own camping gear, food, and personal belongings.
We'll leave from our office, which is located south of Stockholm, at 9 a.m. and drive an hour to a forest near the little town of Gnesta. When we initially arrive in the area, we'll inspect our backpacks before beginning the journey by following a path for approximately an hour, which is the ideal amount of time to ensure that your gear is properly set. At that time, we'll go on our real adventure, walking off the beaten road with no path, no traces of human activity, and nothing to do with civilization, the ideal location for truly experiencing the wilderness and getting away.
In this lovely setting, we normally have lunch around midday. Then we build a fire and cook a delicious meal on it, prepared by your skilled guide (with your help).

What a great experience! We went to a nature reserve in a minivan, hiked through the forest and enjoyed beautiful nature. We spotted many roe deers and hares on the way. Finally, at the end of the tour we were lucky enough to meet a giant moose! Unforgettable moment :). And the guide was amazing! So funny and knowledgable.

Our first kayaking experience and it couldn't be better! Alex was an amazing guide who explained everything well. He also prepared lunch for us on an open fire in the middle of the day (highly appreciated the possibility of a vegan option!). Nature in Sweden is absolutely breathtaking, we enjoyed a full day on water and made a few breaks on little abondoned islands where we jumped into the water for a quick swim and hiked to a little rock for a view. I can only recommend this tour :).
