Hike through dense forests, across vast fields, along old country roads and through the majestic river landscape. Experience local culture and take a break at one of the beautiful rest stops. The Solander trail allows you to experience the Swedish Lapland coast’s multifaceted natural and cultural landscape, up close.
There could hardly have been a more fitting name for this trail than Solanderleden, named after Piteå resident Daniel Solander, apprentice to Carl Linnaeus and himself an internationally renowned botanist, natural scientist and explorer. The innovative hiking trail which will span 180 kilometres upon completion in 2020, will stretch from coast to coast, from Jävre in the south to Luleå Airport in the north. At the time of writing, three sections totalling 60 kilometres have been fully completed, and there is already a lot to discover in the flora, fauna and living rural environment of the Swedish Lapland coastland.
