Join a nature hike with a guide. We follow the historical trail of the iron from Bergslagen to Kristinehamn. Along the way we pass through varied countryside with woods and pastureland, lakes and a small river. We also pass many historical sites and buildings, some are gone but many are still left to tell their story. How the iron was hauled over the terrain is described with, pictures, text and stories. As your guide I can point out many things that are easily missed.
The hike is classified as easy to medium in difficulty. It follows paths, gravelroads and on some occasions an asphalt track. There are chances to see animals and birds and interesting plants. At some points the trail climbs smaller hills. Lunch can be enjoyed by the pond or lake. Along the hike the guide will describe nature, wild animals, culture and tell the stories of when the iron was hauled this way.
A hike is 16 km long and takes six hours.
