This trail is known as a classic in the area and is considered an easier loop. The track is primarily on gravel roads, with smaller trails around Stora Delsjön than around Lilla Delsjön. This route is even more enjoyable if you stop at Lyckans Kafe along the path for some waffles!Show more

Magnificent views, glittering lakes, lush forests and many interesting historical sites. The lovely Hyssna Trail is about half an hour’s drive from both Borås and Gothenburg. This walking trail, around 40 km long, passes through several beautiful nature reserves, for example the beautiful beech woods at Stomsås and Liagärde. As well as the stunning scenery and the many lovely viewpoints there’s much more to experience on the walk, such as the Giant’s Kettle pothole, a 12th century church, and an exciting cave.Show more

Length: 32.1 mi • Est. Multi-day
Asunden trail runs along lake Asunden with the start and end point at Lassalyckan's outdoor recreational area. The trail has orange route markers. The hike takes you through the diverse agricultural and forest landscapes surrounding the lake. The trail passes two nature reserves: Korpeboberg, just south of Marbäck on Åsunden's eastern side and Kråkebo, which is located on the north-western side of Asunden. Both reserves boast idyllic, deciduous forested areas. Some stretches on the western side of the lake are decently hilly. The trail takes you through some very steep passes. There are numerous impressive vantage points and you are afforded a stunning view across the lake and of the surrounding landscape. There are some considerably steep sections on the west side of the lake. The trail runs mainly along forest paths and roads with paved roads in some sections. Services Along the trail there are many designated picnic and rest areas, with benches and tables, and lots of accommodation alternatives. Ulricehamn has several to choose from, the nearest to the trail being Hotel Lassalyckan. In the centre of Ulricehamn, about 2 km from the trail, there’s more accommodation on offer, as well as shops, restaurants and other services. On the southern stretch of the walk you’ll pass the village of Vegby, where there’s a camping site, café and shops. Other accommodation in the area includes Ekelidens B&B, around 2.5 km from the trail, and Asundsholm Golf & Country Club, about 1 km away, which has a restaurant that uses locally sourced, top quality ingredients.Show more

A nice and easy walk. The trail is close to the city but still gives a feeling of being far out in the woods. Good for those hot summer days as you can combine the walk with a nice swim in the lake.Show more

A cultural hiking trail that can also be shortened as required, thanks to several connecting trails. You can easily create your own circular route. The trail passes places where there used to be old smallholdings and crofts, stone age cairns and millstone quarries. You also pass two lakes with bird-watching hides and other places of natural beauty.Show more
