Discover Sollerön's beach areas!
The path follows the beach along the eastern and southern part of the island. In the northwest, between Ångbåtsbryggan and Sollerö camping via Utanmyra, you walk along village roads. The standard of the round varies from wet and wild to asphalt. Rainy periods, it can be quite wet some stretches and if the water level in Siljan is high, the path can be flooded at times.
See map at the bottom of the page.
Suitable starting places where there is also good parking are Ångbåtsbryggan, Bäcksta in Bråmåbo, Kulåra and Sollerö Camping.
The path is signposted with "folk yellow" markings and information boards describing interesting places are set up. The signposted path around the island is about 18 km long but there are roads down to the beach in many places so it is possible to choose a reasonably long stretch.
Description of the path clockwise from Ångbåtsbryggan:
Between Ångbåtsbryggan and Bäcksta (approx. 6 km) you walk along the beach through forest and there are almost no buildings. At times it is quite humid and "wild". Footbridges are laid out in the wettest places. The closer you get to Bäcksta, the better the path becomes. Along this stretch there are several old iron production sites and a seine warp. A slogbod is located 2 km from Ångbåtsbryggan. At Bäcksta there is a nice bathing place and a slogbod.
Between Bäcksta-Rävnäs (approx. 1 km) the path is also of varying standard. A little damp, a little rocky and a bit of gravel road. In Rävnäs there is a slogbod.
On the section Rävnäs-Kulåra (approx. 2 km) you first go up from the beach along a field road before turning down to the beach again with a beautiful view of the mainland and Gesundaberget. The village Kulåra is beautifully situated on the slope down to Lake Siljan. There is a swimming pool and a small campsite.
The path Kulåra-Sollerö camping (approx. 2 km) is newly cleared up to Söderviken. Between Söderviken and the campsite, the path is well trodden. At the campsite there is a restaurant, swimming pool and golf course.
From Sollerö camping to Ångbåtsbryggan (approx. 5 km) you walk along roads. Between Gesundavägen and Moravägen is the most forest. After Moravägen you go through the village Utanmyra. After the village, the fault slope "Klikten" can be seen to the right, which is part of Siljanringen. When you approach the village Bengtsarvet you come to Agnmyren, a bird-rich marsh lake which in the spring is invaded by frogs for mating. There you can if you want to turn off and walk along a beautiful path over the burial ground from the Viking Age and on to Hembygdsgården. From Agnmyren it is only a few hundred meters to Ångbåtsbryggan.
Show consideration for animals, nature and landowners! Have a nice trip!
