When you need to resupply in Grövelsjön, there is this family run store/shop called Fjällbua. It’s run by Pelle och Haydie Andersson. We just got news that they store camping gas if you need to buy that.
There are many showing interest in hiking Via Suecia, both as a thru-hike and in sections. Thats awesome! We are thrilled to be your best support ever on your journey.
The first beta-test of our coming app is done. We’ll look into the feedback and keep on making it even better. Launch date could be late March/early May.
The first out hiking Via Suecia is starting January 14th. Posting will be on Facebook.
Remember – we are a non-profit member driven organisation. For hikers by hikers.
See you all on the trail!
We are happy to announce that the work on our hiking app is so far that we asked some of our friends to beta test it right now. It will be a smartphone application much in the spirit of the Guthook Guides. We work to include a set of tools needed for thru-hiking—a map, guidebook (eventually) and water reports. It will function off-line and crowdsource updated information about trail conditions, trail angels and campsites when online. We hope to have it ready in early 2022.
We are happy to announce that finally we have got a bank account. Paying your membership, support or merchandise is now easy-peasy!
Our Swish numer is 123 135 88 60.
Our IBAN is SE88 8000 0819 1901 4132 8625 and the BIC is SWEDSESS.
Thank you for your support.

We are proud to announce that Ruth Aaqqii arrived at approx. 12:15 pm on Sunday November 14th in Smygehuk. She started at 9:30 pm July 21st at Treriksröset. According to her notes she finished on day 117 and walked a total of 2.636 km. Ruth is the second official women to hike The Via Suecia as a thru-hike.
Congratulations Ruth! Well done!
The 50/50 Challenge is for you who would like to divide your Swedish Hike into two halves in 3 years. We have made some minor changes to it, basically mowing your mid-starting point to Sälen. This is especially good because Sälen has many facilities and it’s also easier to reach. You start your SOBO/NOBO where the Southern Kungsleden starts. Just across the road is where the buss stops, and there are several places to sleep if you need to. In the Mountain Lodge Högfällshotellet there is shower, restaurant, and an ICA shop if you want to re- or supply. From the start there is a short way to the first cabin, Östfjällsstugan, if you NOBO. We are also introducing our winterlogo! Happy trails!
We are trying to find a better way between Vålådalen and Kallsedet. So we thought a short funicular passing the water of Indalsälven at Duved would do the trick. We had a look and made a small film about it: https://youtu.be/NfXmuRR5owA
Please support us. We are a non-profit NGO organisation in need of memberships and donations. Thank you!
