Description

Stockholm Nature Tours – Nacka Nature Reserve (Hellasg?rden)

Stockholm Nature Tours are an ideal way to discover places near the capital. On the whole, no matter where you are in Stockholm, you are always close to islands, water and nature. Hellasg?rden is your gateway to some great hiking trails and is only a 20 minutes bus ride from the central city. Not only is it part of the Nacka Nature Reserve (Hellasg?rden), but it is also a place where the locals love to go. It should be noted that Stockholm is the only big city in Europe, except for Oslo in Norway, that has such a big, untouched nature area. Especially one that is so close to the centre.

If you enjoy the outdoors, this recreation area is without a doubt the perfect escape. Particularly after a day of sightseeing, or if you want to wind down and have some quiet time. Moreover, if you want to experience the real Stockholm, go where the locals like to hang out. It is possible to do this tour all year round. However, there are a few nuances, depending on the season.

Hellasg?rden

The name ‘Hellas’ comes from a sports club that has its origins in 1899. In general, the area around the pretty K?lltorp Lake was a popular spot for excursions and outdoor activities. For instance, football and water polo. Club members enjoyed staying around the lake. As a result, they built a clubhouse in 1914. In later years they expanded and built cottages.

Today, it is possible to rent those. The sports club that is currently looking after the recreational area has two goals. First, they are interested in organising sports activities for their members. Second. they also want to generate an interest in the outdoors with the general public. If you are looking for Stockholm nature tours, join us and get back to basic and enjoy small lakes, pine trees and rocky outcrops.

Even in winter our Stockholm Nature Tours to the Nacka Nature Reserve are well worth it

About this tour

The hike

We meet at the subway stop Slussen – exit G?tgatan. First, you get a brief introduction and what what you can expect on this tour. Second, we make our way to the bus terminal and take a ride to Nacka Nature Reserve. The journey is about 20 minutes. Stockholm nature tours are without a doubt a great way to discover non-touristy areas. Moreover, you experience places where Stockholmers like to hang out. Before we start our walking tour, there is one more chance to use the bathroom.

Our hike is 5 hm and requires a good level of fitness. The terrain is varied and ranges from flat paths on gravel to steep climbs over rocks. Therefore, you must have good, sturdy walking shoes. Moreover, a sense of adventure is important too. On this hike, you get mesmerising views of the K?lltorp Lake that dominates the area. And if you like photography and taking amazing pictures, this is your chance!

Picnic and Swimming

Finally, just before we finish our nature walk, you are invited to a traditional Swedish picnic (weather and season depending). In winter, we take you to a cosy cottage to warm up and get you energised again. In general, Swedes love their picnics and smorgasbords and it is a very traditional thing to do. Food includes for instance herring, smoked salmon, meatballs, cheese, blueberry soup and not the forget the famous cinnamon buns.

Last but not least, when in Sweden, do as the Swedes. Thus, have a dip in the water and go for a swim. You will welcome it after your hike. This is where the tour ends. our Stockholm nature tours are as short or long as you wish. Therefore, after our tour, it is possible to stay on and return by yourself to the city. In winter, you can add a sauna session (additional cost and needs to be pre-booked) for example. And if you are brave enough, jump in the ice water. For Swedes, it is a perfectly normal thing to do.
