Difficulty levels on Stockholm Archipelago Trail

Stockholm Archipelago Trail flows with nature with a variation of terrain and difficulties to suit all types of hikers. To help you choose the right section for your ability and experience we have defined three levels of difficulty.

What is a trail

Choose the right difficulty

Pick a level of difficulty based on your experience, your gear and physical ability. It is important that you are realistic and choose a section where you can enjoy being in nature.

Always use the right kind of footwear for the chosen level of difficulty. The rocky parts can be very slippery when wet. The most important is to have a shoe with a sole that does not slip. For the moderate and challenging sections we recommend a comfortable hiking boot for your comfort and safety.

You are responsible for choosing the right difficulty for you, do not hesitate to contact us if you are uncertain. It is much better to feel safe than to risk your experience.
