Hiking in a cultural landscape

Just north of Stockholm is Bogesundsland, a popular recreation area of woodland and fields. Bogesundsland offers almost a dozen marked hiking trails, all making their way through a varied landscape rich in culture and natural beauty. Along the trails are windbreaks and barbecue grills.

Every season has something to offer. In the autumn the pine woods are ideal for picking mushrooms, in the winter cross-country skiing and long-distance skating are popular, in the spring you can see some of the 115-120 bird species that breed in the region, and in the summertime you can go swimming between the rocks.

In the summer of 1998 a youth hostel opened right by Bogesund Castle.
