Thanks to Sweden’s right to roam (‘Allemansrätten’), you’re allowed to stay the night in a tent, provided your chosen spot is not too near houses or in protected land such as certain nature reserves.
Safety informationThe route is mainly along dirt roads, paths, tracks and secondary tarmacked roads. When walking along roads without pavements or cycle paths, please walk on the left side, facing the direction of traffic and be aware of oncoming cars.
Part 6 of the Viking Trail joins the Upplandsleden trail. From there on you need to follow signs and directions for Upplandsleden. The complementing colour markings for the Viking Trail are dark red and appears together with the cross of St Olav.
Please remember to replenish food and drinks at the more longer stages of the trail. There is usually drinking water and public toilets by the churches. Look for signs for safe drinking water.

EquipmentHow do I estimate the time it will take me to walk the distance? About 3 kilometers per hour is a realistic estimate, but time should be added to make room for stopping at a nice vantage point. It is during the breaks, while you are enjoying nature, that your batteries will be recharged for further walking.
