We all met at Röstånga at 9:00 am. After driving 3 cars up to Klöva Hallar, where we will be ending the trip, we all drove back to Röstånga in one vehicle and started the hike at 10:00 am.

I have never been to this area before so I was quite excited to see the country side of the south of Sweden. It is only about a one hour drive from Copenhagen, so it is not that far to travel. The temperature, about 8℃, was not too cold for a winter hike although it was raining. It rained all day through into the afternoon and finally eased up for a while. I was very impressed with the nature and really enjoyed the views.

We followed the well marked trail 14 km until Klåveröd (on another map it was marked Svartesjö) where we made camp for the night.

There was drinking water, toilet, shelter and a fireplace. We had just enough time to set up camp and prepare dinner before the sky opened up again. It was only about 19:00 pm but we had no choice but to go to bed for the night.

The next morning I awoke to the sound of a light snow falling on to my Tarptent Notch.

Today’s hike is 16.5 km from Klåveröd to Klöva Hallar, where we had parked the cars. We hike through the Söderåsen National Park until we come to gravel roads before entering the forest again. This stretch of the trail is a little boring as you are hiking on open roads on a long stretch.

After lunch we pass by Krika skog until we reach our end destination Klöva Hallar. The views are spectacular! I’ll definitely be back on this section of the trail again.
