- nature experiences without stress
Instead of chasing miles along all of Blekinge's hiking trails, we usually feel better if we leave the demands at home and focus on the drumming of the feet to the ground. Bring some delicious food and enjoy the hours around the campfire.
It is easy these days, when so much is about performing, running faster and letting the weekend excursions in the forest follow the same pace as in everyday life. We are accustomed to speeding, accustomed to playing and little obsessed with catching as much as possible in the shortest possible time. Call it hot, stress or whatever. Quite frankly, it is neither good for the body nor the bud, and instead of time optimization, we need relaxation, enjoyment, calm and deep breath. Listen for yourself, it sounds like the world's best natural experience.
- easily & close
A good tip for enjoying the tranquillity of nature is to hike short day trips home. Plan a hiking excursion in the nearest nature reserve, in Blekinge, there are almost a hundred different nature reserves, with varied nature, both in the forest area and far out in the sea band. You can find the entire list at - Biking & hiking trails
Besides, an extensive project is underway where, under the collective name ARK56, fantastic kayaking, boat, bicycle and hiking trails are packaged in the Blekinge archipelago. And of course, Blekingeleden that stretches from Sölvesborg in the west to Bröms in the east. Therefore, for safety reasons, you need to be extra vigilant when hiking and following trail markings rather than old maps.
Three tips on excellent
1. Almö Nature Reserve
I love that island, the ancient oaks, the peculiar nature of the grazing landscape. The insects in the landscape and standing deadwood. The bathing. Just the feeling of being able to experience nature's old age right on the sea makes me return again and again. Park on the west side of Hjortahammarsviken and hike south towards Almö headland where there is also a parking. Unfortunately, there is no circular trail, but you can walk back on the road or follow your own footsteps back to the car. Smooth highway about 5 km depending on how much you slant over the bays.
2. Beautiful Tjärö
Take the boat from Järnavik to Tjärö and experience the archipelago's excellence. It is not often you can walk in Blekinge and combine the walk with suitable accommodation with hotel standards and delicious food in a restaurant. Of course, you can also bring your own food and tent in the campsite. You can follow the yellow Strövstigen (3 km) or the much lighter blue Naturstigen (1.5 km). Besides, you can follow the coastline around the island and go as far as you want.
3. Blekinge trail
Mörrumsån - Långasjönäs, Karlshamn. Start at Mörrumsån and follow the varied landscape of the forest landscape south towards Davrasjön, Bengtshoka, Södra Hoka and further into Långasjönäs Nature Reserve where the lake landscape offers pictures to remember. Blekinge's forest areas do not get more beautiful than this. Distance about 17 km. If you have the strength, you can try some of the exercise trails around Nytorpet (1 - 8 km).
