Stråsjöleden is getting closer to the large wild forests of the northern part of Sweden and the high mountains – ”fjällvärlden”. You will witness how the nature changes character and becomes breathtakingly wide and wild, and exciting to explore and experience!

Stråsjöleden connects at Kilkoja to Helgonleden, which from Kårböle at first follows the Kårböle trail, but from Klövsjö moves on through a short cut over forests and by lakes up towards the chapel of Storsjö and JämtNorgevägen. It is also possible to follow the Kårböle trail up to the district of Myrviken. It is a nice trail, but the distance will be considerably longer.
