Bathing and the Solander Trail

In Sweden the Right of Public Access allows you to bathe and swim anywhere, as long as you keep a respectful distance from dwellings. The Solander trail passes many communal bathing spots and many lakes and streams suitable for swimming. These are marked with a symbol in the map material.

Most swimming/bathing in Sweden are at own risk, even at locations with piers, dressing rooms or similar. Life guards are very rare.

It is safest to not bathe alone, or in rapid water. Remember to swim along, not away from, the shore and to not jump/dive into unknown waters!
