This circular hike leads on the Sörmlandsleden and offers an exciting combination of nature and culture.
The Nävekvarns Klint nature reserve offers breathtaking views from the edge of the cliff out onto the archipelago islands. According to the relief, the more demanding part of the hike runs through the partly rocky terrain along the coast. However, the efforts are multiply rewarded. Especially in spring there can be found a particularly attractive and diverse flora in the nature reserve.
Places of cultural and historical interest are the remains of a blast furnace and a cellar for storing gunpowder - both witnesses from the time of ore mining and iron extraction in the region. The Kolera Cemetery tells of a dark period in the history of Sweden. There is also a so-called “Russian oven” along the way, which was probably built by the Russian troops on their conquering expedition at the beginning of the 18th century.
A highlight of this hike is the permaculture farm Nygrans Gård, where Christel leads a sustainable lifestyle in harmony with nature. If desired, we can visit the organic vegetable farm and pet animals. In the farm's boutique you can buy local products like homemade bread, fresh eggs, homemade jam and of course the farm's vegetables.
