The Trail

The mission

The idea of a national trail was born by Benny Borgh after thruhiking Sweden and several other countries.

Support for you

Hikers know how important support is. You will get the best support there is on the trail. Via Suecia is the only trail organization that support our hikers while on the trail.

Support means giving our members advice, keeping in contact, cheering up, helping with food, trail magic, washing, shelter and such. That’s totally cool, aint it?

It does not matter if you are a pro or a newbie – the trail is for everyone. 

The outdoors should be a place of healing and enjoyment for all. The mission is to ‘empower all to enjoy, share, and preserve the hiking experience’

The goal – The Swedish Trail

The physical trail is just the means. The most important goal is to support hiking communities and hikers along The Trail.

To create a culture round it. To invite peeps to learn and try, to educate about all the aspects involving hiking and being a good, responsible hiker. To support a secure hiking experience in a variety of ways.


The Trail relies on the generosity of sponsors and donors to help fulfil the mission and vision of creating and maintaining the Trail. Prefer to be a sponsor or make a donation? Please email for more instructions: info (at)
