AVAILABILITY: In 2019 from mid-May until end of August. Please note that we can take max. 3 families on the hike. 

SUITABILITY: The terrain is relatively easy to walk but there are rocks and roots along the path, and possibly some wet points during spring when wearing gumboots is recommended. In general this hike is suitable for families with old enough children able to walk at least 5 kilometers during the day. Keeping us all safe and well requires also ability to listen and follow instructions.

As parents you know your children best, and can estimate if this hike is suitable for them. Hence we are not setting any strict age limit for participation. Also younger children are welcome to participate free of charge if they are carried and constantly supervised by parents through the whole day. It is also good to acknowledge that there is no running water or electricity available but there is a dry toilet by barbecue hut Adolf.

Bergö’s swimming beach offers facilities for showering and changing clothes and there’s also a kiosk selling refreshments.
