Fly to Stockholm/Skavsta (Nyköping) from any of more than 30 destinations in Europe and start walking on the 1000 kilometre Sörmlandsleden trail straight from the arrivals hall.
You find the first trail marking outside Connect Hotel. Three kilometres later, you leave the asphalt behind and enter into an undulating, small-scale mosaic landscape with large forests, lonely lakes, sea and sparsely populated farmland.
The Northern route (71 km/4 days) takes you to the small town of Trosa and then on to the underground in Stockholm (+136 km/8 days). The walk takes you on old roads, past castles and manors, as well as through forests and lakes.
The Southern route (94 km/6 days) opens into silent forests and then follows the quite steep and rocky Baltic Sea coast. A fairly demanding walk in terrain that is rough in places. Different, magnificent and beautiful.
Both Fly&Walk routes start in Nyköping. A small, picturesque town where you can get provisions and camping gas. Ten kilometres of interesting cultural history away from Stockholm/Skavsta Airport.
