Hiking in Sala

Experience the wilderness of Sala with a professional wilderness guide!

In a small group of maximum 12 participants we spend two days in the woods and camp next to a small woodland lake. The tour starts at the towns old Silver mine and we hike along the famous “Gruvdammsrundan”, approximately 30 km. Tranquil forests, scenic views and awe-inspiring wilderness await, as well as some idyllic Swedish cultural landscape spotted with traditional red cottages.

We purify water from lakes and streams, cook our food over open fire and learn how to navigate with a map and compass. Choose between spending your night comfortably in a tent or try our more minimalistic alternative of outdoor hammocks.

This is the perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to learn more about hiking and spending time in the woods of central Sweden.
