There is evidence that the road was used in the Middle Ages, but it is probably even quite a bit older. The area’s history can be sensed both visually and in the form of ancient remnants along this part of the Viking trail. Part 4 offers an easy but varied walk along woodland paths and gravel roads passing through lovely old farmyards. Keep an eye open for the beautiful old milestones along the old country road. 

This part of the trail is great for biking. 

Häverödal is a former railway town by the Rimbo-Sunds railway in Häverö parish, now a part of Norrtälje municipality. Today it is a popular place to settle because of its closeness to Hallstavik as well as the sea and the archipelago. The beautiful old courthouse, now privately owned, is worth a stop. Do not forget to refill your water bottle by the centrally located petrol station before moving on. 

Author’s recommendation

Tänk på att fylla på med dricksvatten vid macken i centrum innan ni går vidare och proviantera vid affären då det är sparsamt med affärer på etapp 4.

Equipment

How 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.
