Discover the amazing nature of Sweden with an easy sunset hike through the Tyresta National Park. The park is just a quick bus ride (public transport) away from central Stockholm. Our expert guide will show you the best trails on this highly recommended hiking trail. We are taking you through ancient forests and peaceful lakes.
 

Picture this: an awesome evening adventure where the sun goes down. You might even run into some wild animals like deer, wild boars, hares, and others. Of course, there is no guarantee but our guide knows their stuff and will share facts about the environment.

Please note, that this is not a dedicated wildlife safari.

 

This sunset hike is like a secret mission to find hidden spots that not many people know about. As it gets darker, the forest gets mysterious, and we'll treat you to a classic Swedish picnic in a super pretty and quiet spot.
 

Nature is full of surprises, so who knows what wild animals you might spot? Finish off the night with a tasty traditional Swedish meal, and we'll drop you back at Gullmarsplan in town.

CUSTOMER FAQ

1. What weather can I expect?

When planning your hiking tour in Stockholm, it's important to be prepared for varying weather conditions throughout the year. Each season brings its own unique climate and characteristics, influencing the hiking experience in different ways. Spring Temperatures typically range from 5°C to 15°C. The weather can be quite variable, with sunny days, occasional rain showers, and cooler mornings and evenings. Be prepared for the occasional rainy days, which can make the atmosphere moody but also bring out the vibrant colors of nature. Summer This time of the year offers the warmest weather, with temperatures ranging from 15°C to 30°C. Expect longer days with plenty of sunshine, perfect for extended hikes. Occasional rain showers are possible. Despite the rain, the overall conditions are pleasant and ideal for hiking. Autumn Already cooler temperatures, usually between 5°C and 15°C. The weather can be quite variable, with a mix of sunny, rainy, and windy days. The landscape is beautifully colored with autumn foliage, making it a picturesque time for hiking. Rainy days can add a charm to the surroundings, but can also make trails slippery with fallen leaves and mud. Winter The temperatures in Stockholm range from -10°C to 5°C. Expect colder, shorter days with potential snowfall. The trails can be icy or covered with snow, and rainy days can make the slippery. Winter hiking offers a serene and unique experience, with crisp air and stunning snowy landscapes.

2. What clothing should I bring?

Prepare for your Stockholm hiking tour with clothing for all seasons. Dress in layers: a moisture-wicking base layer, an insulating mid-layer, and a waterproof outer layer. Quick-drying pants, preferably convertible, and a lightweight waterproof jacket are essential. For colder weather, bring thermal underwear, a fleece sweater, a warm hat, gloves, and a scarf. Sturdy, waterproof hiking boots with good ankle support and extra warm socks are best. For sunny days, pack a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Also, carry a small backpack for essentials, a rain cover, and trekking poles for stability. With the right gear, you'll be ready for any weather and enjoy your Stockholm hiking experience.

3. Where can I leave my luggage?

We have no storage availability for luggage (e.g., suitcases) on our hiking tour. However, you can bring smaller backpacks (daypacks) with you on the hike. For larger luggage, we recommend using one of the dedicated luggage box providers in Stockholm. Recommendation: Luggage Hero T-Centralen https://lughero.com/StockholmNatureActivities

4. What facilities are available?

Our hiking tour takes you directly into the heart of nature, providing a truly immersive experience. As such, there are no facilities along the way. If you need to use the toilet, you'll have to do so in nature. Please come prepared for this to ensure you can enjoy your tour comfortably.

5. What fitness level is required?

This hiking tour is a light to medium-light physical activity. Most of our customers have no trouble with the required fitness, as we maintain a relaxed pace. We always ensure that everyone gets the best possible experience and provide extra support if needed. Please keep in mind, we walk partly off-trail, which adds some additional challenge. You just need to be in normal health to participate. However, for some customers, it can be a demanding exercise that they may feel in their legs and feet after the activity.

6. What animals can we see?

During our hiking tour in Tyresta National Park, you have the opportunity to encounter a variety of wildlife native to the Stockholm area. Keep in mind that our hiking tour is primarily a walk through nature, and any animal spotting is an additional bonus, not guaranteed. Due to the dense forest, any wildlife sighting requires a bit of luck. However, you might keep an eye out for: - Deer: These graceful animals can sometimes be spotted in the forested areas, though sightings are rare. - Birds: Tyresta National Park is home to a wide variety of bird species, including woodpeckers, owls, and many songbirds. - Hares: These shy creatures can sometimes be seen darting through the underbrush. - Moose: While moose are more commonly found in open fields, you would need to be extremely lucky to see one in the forest. - Badgers: These nocturnal animals are known for their distinctive black and white striped faces. - Roe Deer: Smaller than the common deer, these animals are sometimes sighted in the park. - Wild Boars: Occasionally, these animals can be seen foraging in the forest. - Squirrels: Red and gray squirrels are abundant and can often be seen scurrying up trees. Remember to maintain a respectful distance from all wildlife and avoid disturbing their natural habitat. Our guides will help you identify different species and share interesting facts about the local fauna.

7. What is the right to roam?

Sweden's unique "Right to Roam" (Allemansrätten) allows everyone to enjoy nature freely, with certain responsibilities. This right means you can hike, camp, and explore the outdoors without needing special permission, as long as you respect the environment and landowners. Key principles of the Right to Roam include: - Respect Nature: Do not disturb wildlife or damage vegetation. Stick to marked trails and avoid trampling on sensitive areas. - Leave No Trace: Take all your litter with you and leave the area as you found it. This helps preserve the natural beauty for others to enjoy. - Respect Private Property: You can pass through private land, but avoid walking too close to homes and respect privacy. Always close gates behind you. The Right to Roam is a cherished part of Swedish culture, allowing everyone to experience and enjoy the beauty of nature responsibly. During our hiking tour, we'll embrace these principles to ensure a safe and respectful adventure in the Nacka Nature Reserve.
