The starting point of the stage is Hälsingegården, Nirsgård. The hike continues west along Sördellen and past the church of Norrbo up to Dellenbaden, by the canal where the lakes Norrdellen and Sördellen meet. Josefsberget is a nice place for a break, with a nice view of Norrbo and the Joseph's Spring. In Hålsjö, lunch is served in the old school.

 The trail during stage five initially follows small paths, which makes it easy to walk. Short distances run along the moderately busy Norrbovägen, which is probably the old pilgrim route. Stråsjöleden joins with other hiking trails; first Borgarleden (orange marking) and then the church path to the church of Norrbo.

Just after the church of Norrbo, you will find on the right side of the road two old pines with a peculiar way of growing. The tradition says that they originate from two priests who pilgrimaged to Santiago de Compostela and brought back two cones to Norrbo. They are called Per Stabbe and Per Sto. You can find the information on a sign next to it and the photo for this stage.

In Hålsjö lunch is served in the old school.

After passing the old school, there is a road for you to come down to Sördellen's beach, where you can follow the road along the beach. Here you have a magnificent view of Sördellen and the mountains and nature surrounding it – but make sure you keep an eye on the road as well, since the road is narrow and can get quite busy during the summer season. There are a few rest areas and small bathing places here where you can sit down in peace and contemplate with the view in front of you. You will find the end of the stage where the two great lakes meet – by the hostel of Dellenbaden.

Author’s recommendation

Book your accomodation at the hostel of Dellenbaden well beforehand. Take time for a break by the Dellen lake!
