The stage starts in Växbo and runs through agricultural countryside and forests towards Ljusnan, one of Norrland's great rivers – a wide, wild and beautiful sight. On the other side of Ljusnan, the trail moves north towards the Church of Arbrå, situated by the riverbank.

Etappen börjar vid Växbo kapell. Strax i närheten ligger Landhandeln Café och Keramik som du kan besöka och kanske även proviantera lite inför vandringen. Hemgjord glass!
