Rejoin the Soteleden, following woodland paths until you reach the village of Bovallstrand, where the trail joins the coast. Dotted with typically ‘scandi’ wooden houses and an attractive coastline, it’s a perfect place to stop and enjoy a packed lunch. The coastline is mostly rocky with large smooth granite rocks offering a perfect place to rest, especially inviting on warm days when the stone heats up nicely. 

Continue onwards to the town of Hunnesbostrand again following woodland trails, isolated country homes and quiet narrows lanes. If there’s some time until the next bus, it’s a great place to enjoy an ice-cream by the harbour and a stroll around it's narrow streets. Afterwards take the bus to the popular island of Smögen, your base for the next two nights.


Be sure to pack your bathing suit for a swim at the badinrättning (swimming area) in Bovallstrand.

There are a couple of points on this route where you need to cross busy main roads so take good care here. As with all road walking, walk on the left so as to face any oncoming traffic and try to make yourself as visible as possible.

Points of interest


Dating back to as early as the 16th Century Smögen is now  well known for its long, wooden boardwalk filled with restuarants, shops in old fishing huts and busy bars. Smögen is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Swedish west coast, also well known for its fish, prawns and other seafood, one of Sweden's few fish markets is located here. A popular spot amongst Swedes and Norwegians to head to on their sail and motorboats during the summer the extensive nightlife scene makes for a great evening. 

If you prefer a little more tranquility then head to the Vallevik swimming area at the end of the boardwalk. Made up of wooden platforms, diving boards and smooth cliff tops it's the perfect spot to jump in for a swim or just to relax and watch the sun go down.

A pair of sturdy walking trainers will be enough for this route if you dont want to wear full hiking boots. Along with the rest of your usual gear for a day outdoors remember to pack a wind/waterproof and an extra layer, especially during early/late season.

On a hot day be sure to pack your swim suit and suncream!
