Itinerary

Explore the many sights and attractions of the harbour town during an extensive stroll along the little canals and parks located in the beautiful historic centre.

Your initial tour leads you directly from Göteborg to the Outdoor-recreation centre Skatås. After only a few kilometres you reach the Delsjön nature reserve, the largest one of its kind located in the surroundings of Göteborg. After that you pass the Knipeflåg-mountains, a giant plateau, from where the ascent of Mount Getryggen awaits. Enjoy the view onto Göteborg from high up before you continue to the Kåsjön-lakes. Here we recommend a break and a refreshing swim before you reach today’s Day Finish Jonsered, a little village with ample history.

You ascend on lovely paths to Mount Goråsbergen, the ascent features a few steep sections, but you get rewarded with marvellous views across lake Aspen. After that you descend to Lerum, where we recommend a break at the café Aspenäs situated just around the corner from your hotel.

Please also visit the palace in Nääs before you continue into the little village of Tollered.
