The Solander Trail - a growing hiking trail

Do what Daniel Solander, disciple of Carl Von Linneus did – explore the countryside!

Take a hike in the coastal landscape and wilderness of the Solander Trail in Swedish Lapland. A walk through a countryside with varying nature and culture. Forests, vistas, fishing lakes, rivers and brooks. Landscapes waiting to tell their stories. The Solander Trail encompasses encounters with rural life, animals at pasture, pauses at summer cafés and local community centers, visits to vendors of home-grown produce and overnight stays along the trail. As a hiker you can choose among many different cultural activities and make detours to nearby points of interest. 

In addition to walking you can also paddle or bicycle on certain sections or combine walking, bicycling and paddling.

The trail is easily reached by bus or car from Piteå, Skellefteå, Älvsbyn or Luleå, and transfer services are available for those wishing to travel or send luggage between points along the trail.

Along the trail there are break areas with windshields and fireplaces. You can stay overnight in cabins, cottages, or on a farm with B&B - or take a transfer from nearby hostels, boarding houses or hotels. If you don’t wish to hike alone there are walking groups or guided tours along the trail.

Now that the phyical trail is finihed we go on to finding ways of making it the best possible destination, storytelling arena and cultural scene: so we will keep saying:

Welcome to explore a growing hiking trail!
