TanumStrand - Torim (16 km)
Between Bovallstrand and Tanum Strand, the Coastal Path does a kind of ”jump”. However there are a couple of circular feeder tracks at Hamburgsund and Fjällbacka. (see map 16). As a unifying ink, the Coastal Path starts again at Tanum Strand, immediately south of Grebbestad. The trail follows the coast along Grebbestadkilen through Grebbestad centre and then along highway 163. Right after Grebbestad church, the trail veers right, eastwards from the roadway. After 1 km, you pass Greby burial fields, one of Sweden’s finest and largest Iron Age burial sites with approx. 200 graves. The path continues on gravel surfaces through forest and an agricultural landscape for a further 3 km. On your way to Tanumshede, you cross the railway and pass more ancient monuments. Through the town, you follow the main road up to Lurvägen. Follow the roadway approx. 5 km where the trail veers off to the right on a smaller road running parallel with the road to Torim.
