Malö Bay – Grundsund (25 km)

9

The path crosses Malö, Flatö, Dragsmark and Skaftö. This can mean using ferries and bridges. The trail follows a shifting pattern of smaller roads, nature paths and older transport routes. On certain sections, stairs and planking have been installed for ease of movement in steep or wet areas. The trail is always close to the sea or inland waterways, which have very lively boat traffic in summer. Typically, the islands feature older farms, agriculture fishing and harbour villages, as well many summer residences. Many viewing points offer fine panoramas across the delightful landscape. Highest trail point s Åseberget at approx. 60 m.a.s.l.
