In the former mining village of Koppartorp, copper and cobalt ore were already extracted in the Middle Ages. On this hike we get to pass numerous ore mines, most of them from the 18th and 19th centuries. The traces of life and work in the area are visible everywhere and along the way you can find ruins of earth cellars as well as houses and even a former smelting plant.

The 3000-year-old rock carvings could easily be overlooked at first glance, but eventually reveal themselves to be depictions of ships, trees, people and even "God’s footprints".

On this 16 km long hike we cross particularly varied nature. From dry pine forests and moist birch forests, from flat forest roads to rocky terrain - the landscape is anything but monotonous.

This is a one-way hike with recommended start in Koppartorp and end in Nävekvarn. We will arrange the transport according to the group size.
