Skåneleden Trail SL1 Sections 16,17,18 & 22

Even though it was the middle of the summer, it was cool with overcast skies. It also looked like some rain was on the way too. I departed Copenhagen at 11:08 AM on Tuesday July 18th 2017 in the direction of Göteborg and my destination was Ängelholm in Sweden. When I arrived at the train station in Ängelholm …

Fjällräven Classic Denmark 2017

Some people laughed at me in my rain skirt and trekking umbrella asking what I had on under my kilt etc. But I also heard some comments behind me like "he's the smart one you know, he's not cooking/sweating under that umbrella like we are in these rain pants and rain jackets".

Skåneleden Trail SL1 Section 3 (which is also Blekingeleden Trail stage 3), section 3A (old discontinued section), sections 4, 5 and 6

I rode the train from Copenhagen central to Bromölla station in Sweden on Wednesday evening after work on 24/05/2017. From here I caught the bus up to Östafors where I left the trail last time. The time was 6:22 pm. It was a short hike to camp 1 at Östafors. There were signs indicating drinking water somewhere down …

Skåneleden Trail SL1 Sections 1 and 2 (which is also Blekingeleden Trail stages 1 and 2)

From here SL1 section 1 starts from the railway station heading through the town and then heads up to Ryssberget about 150m above sea level. The first 3 stages of SL1 are also the first three stages of …

North Sea Trail (Vestkyststien) – Thy National Park

A couple of things changed since my remarks on my blog from March 18th 2017. I didn't pack my Tarptent Notch after all and I took my Zpacks Duplex instead. Just love that tent.  The route that I had planned to take I changed underway as well including the sites where I planned to overnight. …

I’ll be hiking in Thy National Park later this month

North Sea Trail (Vestkyststien) On Friday March 31st I'll be heading to Hanstholm on the west coast of Denmark. I'm planning a 3 day hike starting at the harbour at Hanstholm and finishing 50 km south at Nørre Vorupør. It will take about 4 hours to drive from Copenhagen to the start. The first section is therefore only about …

Skåneleden Trail SL4 Sections 7, 7A and 7B – The Österlen Circle Trail (SL4 section 7B is also SL3 section 14)

Friday March 10 at 9AM I took the day off work and drove the less than two hours drive from Copenhagen to Brösarp in Skåne in the south of Sweden. Arriving just before 11AM at the carpark trail head, I took a quick coffee break before setting out. I decided to hike The Österlen Circle Trail anticlockwise. So …

Gear I’ll be using next weekend hiking The Österlen Circle Trail

I only have sections 11 - 14 to do to complete hiking the Skåneleden Trail 3: Ås till åsleden, but I just don't have enough time this weekend. So instead I'll be doing The Österlen circle trail, which actually incorporates the last section 14 of Skåneleden Trail 3. This will be a bonus anyway because I'll be able to check …

Skåneleden Trail SL3 Sections 8, 9, 10 and part of section 7 (SL3 sections 8 and 9 are also SL2 sections 7 and 8)

I have decided that I will attempt to "section hike" all 5 Skåneleden Trails in Sweden. I've already hiked different sections on different trails. I am progressing with SL3 at present time and so far I have completed about 77 km of this trail. In January I got off the trail not far from Frostavallens Hostel so this is …
