Torim- Ejgdesjön (26 km)

18

1 km north of Södra Ek, you follow a roadway which veers off to the right towards Ranebo. After 4 km, at Svenseröd, you turn right along a gravel road, which you follow for 2.5 km up to Ranebo open air pursuits centre. Several ski and walking trails start from here. The trail then skirts Nedre Bolsjön and passes between several lakes before turning northwards. For its whole length, the trail follows the narrow lake Långvattnet up to highway 164 at Ejgde. Here you walk down a narrow road along Ejgdesjön’s easterly waterside. At the northern tip of the lake, the Coastal Path links to the Bohus trail.

Other information

Snarsmon, a settlement that was used by itinerants up to the beginning of the previous century (1). National border cairn K, dated 1835, partly gold painted and with King Karl IV’s emblem (2). Älgafallet, which marks the boundary between Norway and Sweden (3). Amunds Hatt, 179 metres above sea level and the highest point in the area with viewing tower at the top (4). Not far from there is Munkerödshillern, a large and imposing cavern also called Rövaregrottan (Robber Grotto) (5). The Bohus trail, a 36 mile long walking trail from Hallandsgränsen in the south to Strömstad in the north, passes through this area (6).

From Ejgdesjön you can choose instead to follow the Bohus trail, which runs in largely parallel with the Coastal Path, though on on the Swedish side. Where the Bohus trail crosses highway 165 at Vassbotten, you follow the road north across the national boundary to the picnic area at Älgafallet. Bus connections are available at Vassbotten and Ejgde. For more information see www.tanum.se
