This stage of Helgonleden starts at the Church of Rengsjö and continues into the west. The stage leads through acres and far fields, beautiful lakes and wide woodland.

Växbo and the area around the mill is the perfect spot for a longer rest - the area has a rich cultural heritage to explore, and impressive sights such as the windling stream that runs through the area – Växboån – and Trolldalen: the deep valley with its magical surroundings; rich vegetation, creeks and paths through the forest. Parts of the film Pippi Longstocking on the run (1970) was shot here.

Since we are moving among fields and acres with crops, the trail sometimes has to go around them.

For a wonderfully tasty meal, visit Växbo Kvarns restaurant!
