Find a Trail
As I come from Sweden, I’m no expert in trails outside my country. So I’m gonna start with listing som links that could be useful if you want to hike here in Sweden. Then I’ll also list some links to other trails in the world that I have on my bucket list!
If you have any tips on trails or websites about hiking, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a detailed, typographic web map over all Sweden. You can just zoom in to the area you’ll visit or that you want to hike in and see if there’s any hiking trails close. Marked hiking trails are marked with pink on the map. Here you’ll find a complete list and explanation of the symbols on the map. If you find a map in a store that you can buy, this is the map you get, but online it’s free and it covers all Sweden!
The english version is unfortunately very limited and you almost only get suggestions on bookable activities. But it might be good to start here, to get an idea on what you can find here and then start to research the trails yourself.
The most famous hiking trail in Sweden is the 425 km long trail Kungsleden/The Kings Trail. Unfortunately I haven’t found any good website in English, but this is a overview map of it. I’m sure you’ll find some information if you google it.
If you want links to specific Swedish trails, you can find some here. The information will be in Swedish in most cases though.
